1. Hong Kong Disneyland
Disneyland parks are one of the most exciting attractions for the young ones and for the adults, too. This one is mostly for young children, but grown ups can find a lot for themselves here as well. One thing you must do is to stay until the evening and watch the lovely parade and the firework show. It is what this park is famous for. The entrance to the park is around $70 – a little bit cheaper than the other parks around the world, so use this opportunity and have fun with Mickey Mouse and the gang.
2. The Avenue of Stars
This sidewalk on the shore of Victoria Bay has been modelled to resemble the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It features hand prints and signatures of the most famous Hong Kong actors and film industry figures, such as Jackie Chan, and metal sculptures of people, who helped to make Hong Kong famous. The sculpture of Bruce Lee is particularly popular here.
It is worth to visit the Avenue of Stars for the views of Victoria Bay and the Peak. During the evening the sight is amazing.
Every day at 8 pm you can admire the Symphony of Lights from the sidewalk. According to the Guinness Book of Records it is the largest permanent light and sound show in the world. For about 15 minutes lasers, skylights, searchlights, LED lights, fireworks, music and narration come together in a perfect harmony. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays the narration is in English, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays it is in Mandarin and on Sundays it is in Cantonese.
3. Noah’s Ark Hong Kong
This one is probably one of the strangest Hong Kong attractions, but if you are travelling with kids then it is a great place to visit.
The Ark was built under some major controversies and created a big religious debate.
It is the only full-size replica of Noah’s Ark in the world. It features exhibitions and informative displays about Ma Wan Island, where the Ark is located, environmental issues and conservation projects.
During your visit you will be constantly reminded of the importance of compassion, love and respect for nature and other people. This is also displayed by the staff working in the restaurants and at various exhibits.
Be aware that there are some religious references through out the exhibitions.
The Ark is not very popular among the tourists and it is mainly quiet. There are beautiful gardens to enjoy and if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city this might be a perfect place for you.
4. Madame Tussauds Hong Kong
Madame Tussauds is located at the Peak, so if you are planning to visit this famous site you can combine it with the wax museum.
Here you can take a photo with Jackie Chan, Robert Pattison, Barack Obama, or one of many statues of Chinese and Asian celebrities.
There are 11 themed areas: Hong Kong Glamour, Royal Family, Historical and National Heroes, TV Studio, World Premiere, Kung – Fu, K-Wave, The Champions, Authentic History, Music Icons and Fantasy Kingdom.
If you haven’t been to one of the Madame Tussauds museums before, this is your chance.
5. Ocean Park
