Top 5 Things to Do
in Hong Kong
1. Take a helicopter ride
You want a breathtaking view of Hong Kong? Take a helicopter ride around the city! It won't be cheap though.
Best time - dusk; not during a thunderstorm or typhoon
2. Ride the Peak Tram
Best time - dusk on a clear day
3. Ride the cable car
You can either ride it in Ocean Park or at Ngong Ping 360. To ride the latter, you can board it in Tung Chung near the MTR station. And if you pay a little more, you can ride one with a glass bottom! link to Ngong Ping 360
Best time - when it's not windy
BEWARE: every once in a while, their operation is suspended, so check before you head out.
4. Ride the century-old tram
The tram service on Hong Kong Island has been around for literally a century. It's a great way to see a little of the city especially from the upper deck.
Best time - day time or night time, or both.
