day! more about Ocean Park
3. Victoria Peak
Take the Peak
Tram up to the Victoria
Peak and get a magnificent view
of the Kowloon Penisula with Hong Kong Island buildings
in the foreground.
Children may not appreciate the view as much, but there's a
video game arcade in the Peak Tower to keep them entertained! And then
there's the wax museum where they can have their picture taken with celebrities
like Jacky Chan, David Beckham, Yao Ming, Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Lady Gaga.

An area with a small town feel, Stanley
is away from the densely populated Hong Kong with the famous Stanley Market,
a strip of restaurants, a beach, plus a small shopping center. An interesting
landmark is an old building moved there stone by stone from Central
district and reassembled again. It's now home to some nice
restaurants by the sea. Stanley is also one of the popular areas for expats who have chosen to move to Hong Kong.
Best time to go to shop - during the day.
