Once a simple fishing village, today Hong Kong is one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities and a place where East truly meets West! Soak up the history and culture of this vibrant destination on this fascinating half-day tour. This is the perfect way for new visitors or those who have limited time in the city to get a flavour of incredible Hong Kong!
The first visit of the day is the famous Victoria Peak; the thousand-foot-high back of the dragon. This is the best vantage point in Hong Kong, offering awe-inspiring panoramic views of Victoria Harbour and Kowloon, towering skyscrapers and peaceful green hillsides. Getting to Victoria Peak is an unforgettable adventure and there's nothing in the world like the Peak Tram! Pulled by steel cables, the tram climbs 373 metres and it's so steep that the buildings you pass look like they're leaning at a 45-degree angle! Once you’re at the peak, enjoy the amazing views of Hong Kong from The Sky Terrace 428. Standing at 428 metres above sea level, this is the highest viewing platform in all of Hong Kong, offering stunning 360-degree panoramic views.
Your coach then takes you to the coastal beauty of Repulse Bay and Deep Water Bay, before stopping at the Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter for a fascinating close-up of the local fisher folk and their boat community. For a captivating contrast to the jostle of junks and sampans, you can view the glamorous and glitzy floating restaurants or an optional 20-minute sampan ride around the Aberdeen inner harbour provides a picturesque insight into the lives of the boat people. Afterwards, enjoy a brief stop at a jewellery factory, where you’ll enjoy some complimentary refreshments in its exclusive showroom before finishing your tour at Stanley Market, where you’ll have time to hunt for bargains in the many market stalls that line the narrow lanes. Your ticket also includes a complimentary rickshaw open top bus ticket, which is valid for 30 days and can be used at any time. Specially decorated in a rickshaw livery, the "Rickshaw Sightseeing Bus", offers you a convenient hop-on, hop-off service. Like riding on a rickshaw in the old days, you can explore Hong Kong with 360-degree panoramic views along the way!
