Hong Kong Tours, Travel & Backpacker Adventure
Hong Kong is one of Asia's most spectacular tourist destinations. One of the most popular of Hong Kong's attractions is The Peak. A short trip on the Peak Tram takes visitors to the top of Victoria Peak for amazing views of the city and harbor. Sporting events in Hong Kong include the annual Hong Kong Marathon, the Hong Kong Sevens, a famous rugby tournament, and the popular dragon boat races. Horse racing is also extremely popular and regular races are held at Happy Valley Racecourse in Causeway Bay on the island and also at Sha Tin in the New Territories. Hong Kong has many adventure attractions that cater to families. Ocean Park, Hong Kong's Aqua City, Grand Aquarium and Giant Panda Adventure are among the best and should not be missed. Hong Kong Disneyland, another family favorite, features rides, shows, and the Animation Academy.
For cultural outings in Hong Kong, visitors can take a trip on Duk Ling, an old restored Chinese junk that takes a scenic trip around Victoria Harbour. There are also many Buddhist temples to explore; in fact there are hundreds of temples dotted about both Hong Kong Island and also into the New Territories, many dating back hundreds of years. The Hong Kong Heritage Museum is also a must-see for those who are interested in the history of the island. Of course, Hong Kong is also known for its incredible film industry. Hong Kong has produced many stars, including Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and more recently, Jet Li. A visit to Hong Kong and its famous movie studios is a truly unforgettable experience!
