4 Unmissable Activities In Hong Kong Under HK$160
Visiting Hong Kong on a budget doesn't mean you have to miss out on all the city has to offer. These fun picks will give you a bit of everything and save you from worrying about your wallet!
1. The Peak Tram
Undoubtedly, The Peak is one of the most photographed locations in Hong Kong. To access this glorious view of the city, save your legs and opt for the Peak Tram instead. This 7 minute journey will see you moving uphill and journeying through some gorgeous greenery - a welcome change from the Hong Kong's usual concrete jungle.
Pro tip: get up nice and early to beat the long lines, as eager tourists can create queues that could easily give Disneyland a run for its money.
Price: HK$90 (return)
2. Chi Lin Nunnery & Nan Lian Garden
There is a real sense of juxtaposition between the serene landscaped gardens and the brutal high rises that surround this peaceful oasis out in Diamond Hill. If you're after a taste of the Tang Dynasty, then Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Gardens the place for you.
3. Star Ferry
Take a Star Ferry across the fragrant harbour and time it with the Symphony of Lights show (8pm show) to see the sky light up on the water among other ferries and junks. The journey isn't exactly the longest due to years of land reclamation, but the views are up there in the best in the world and is definitely worth seeing up close and personal.
Pro tip: For extra enjoyment, get off at Tsim Sa Tsui and take a jaunt along the Avenue Of The Stars.
Price: Adults HK$2.50 on Monday-Friday (one-way) and HK $3.40 on Saturday-Sunday (one-way)
4. Happy Hour With A View
Finish your day with a hard earned cocktail (or three) at Sugar. This rooftop bar is a fine place to sit back and reminisce while taking in spectacular views. Happy Hour at Sugar is at 5-7pm, so make sure you grab a table early and watch as the day melts into night. It's sheer bliss!
Price: Cocktails from HK$60 (a complete steal!)
