Hi Friends,

I'm sure there are many amongst us who have had the chance, or wish to visit, this lovely island city in Asia. Im trying to put together a set of must do/must see itinerary to help the people who plan visit in near future. So please join me in updating it with your experiences and suggestions.

Cheers,
Audy

A must visit!

Watch the beautiful skyline of hongkong from across the shore, in Kowloon Peninsula.
Make sure to catch either the sunrise or the sunset changing the colors of the HK skyline landscape.

Hong Kong is the world's most beautiful and attractive place. A development of Hong Kong is very remarkable and appreciable. I love this place very much.

I've been to Hong Kong once, when I was about 8 or 9. I remember it being very colorful at night, and during the day quite cold and foggy. My roommate is gonna be living there starting next year.

Disney Theme Park may be the only thingg that attracts me in Hongkong. Very Happy I'm not very interested in scenaries, shopping centers or something like that~ I love all kinds of theme parks~ Very Happy

"with clearly on four seasons"? Did you mean four distinct seasons? I don't think that's possible~ Hongkong is a subtropic coastal city. How can there be four distinct seasons?

I was curious enough to look it up in the US CIA factbook. According to

https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/hk.html

Hong Kong is at 22 degrees latitude -- tropical, but borderline. Apparently the low elevation, wind and ocean currents enhance the tropical character however:

Quote:
subtropical monsoon; cool and humid in winter, hot and rainy from spring through summer, warm and sunny in fall


So I agree, four distinct seasons is a stretch.

Also don't forget about the other things apart from tall buildings and all the lights on the skyline! There is often much more to a country than its views, including cuisine, culture, fashion, shopping(!), etc.

I can't think of anything right off the top of my head (I'll post something else when I do), but I can say that Hong Kong is a wonderful place to travel and there is much more that what's on the surface. Good luck to anyone wanting to travel there and happy travels!

Food and night life are amazing in HK. It's also very close to Macau, for a bit of a different experience. Definitely recommend it for a visit!

I'm gonna visit there for several days this December. The main reasons I wanted to visit is to go to Disneyland and to shop. I'll be sure to catch the sunset.

I have visited there last December. Although I enjoyed the trip, the people were very rude. Some people were pushing in queues or anywhere that is crowded. Some of them ignore you when you ask them for directions or information.

hello Guys,

Now, I am in Hongkong and i can say its a modern City. many people are tourist just doing shopping and eating all over the City.

The price is not that high i can say it just on the mid level. I have seen Victoria harbour and i am staying at Prince Marco polo hotel for HK$1250/night. The hotel is very nice and i get perfect view from the sea.

My next tour next month will be in Singapore or Sweden. I prefer more on Sweden next month.

Hong Kong is a nice place but it is too crowded. I guess the problem is there are too many tourists from mainlind China.

Indeed. There are many tourist from China.

I just wondering why they like to shopping in Hongkong. Is the products are cheap in Hong kong? Or Chinese people getting richer now a days.

Anywhere we go now Chinese are present in each country. lol

I think they want the whole world to become Chinese also.

I was there in '08. It was beautiful! It's a great place for shopping gadgets and also for touring.
