Why visit Hong Kong ?

Hong Kong location iamge - CruiseDirection

The most important deep-water harbour in Asia

One of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan centres in the world

Kai Tak Cruise Terminal has the largest rooftop garden in Hong Kong. Covering 23,000 square metres, it features a lawn water garden, fountain plaza and a platform that affords incredible views of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. Close by are the Chi Lin Nunnery, the Kowloon City food district and the Lei Yue Mun seafood bazaar.  

The Ocean Terminal will put you right in the heart of the city and the exciting shopping and dining district of Tsim Sha Tsui. The terminal itself has 450 shops, 50 restaurants, cinemas and luxury hotels. However, there is so much more to see in this brash, enticing, fast-moving place.  

The Kowloon Peninsula is home to the Ladies’ Market and the Temple Street Night Market, the luxury shops on Nathan Road’s Golden Mile, and many museums.  

The New Territories connect Kowloon to mainland China and have a selection of elaborate temples and woodlands ripe for exploration.  

There is also Hong Kong Island, which is home to the city’s financial district, and Sheung Wan, a historical Chinese neighbourhood where the British originally took control that is now being reclaimed as a trendy area.  

The Peak is the highest point on Hong Kong Island, and from its top, you can see a magnificent panorama of the city from the skyscrapers of the central district to the mountains of the New Territories. It is reached by the Peak Tram, which rises 400m above sea level, and once at the top, you can head to the viewing platform or hike around the 3.5 km Peak Circle.  

When you are cruising to Hong Kong, planning your visit well in advance is a good idea, as the place is packed with places to see and things to do.  

Tian Tan Buddha, also known as The Big Buddha, is an iconic bronze statue 34m high, and visitors must climb 268 steps to reach it. Next to it is the Po Lin Monastery, one of the world’s most important Buddhist sites.  

You can also take a boat tour of Victoria Harbour, ride a sampan boat, sample the food in one of Hong Kong’s famous seafood restaurants, visit the temples of the Yuen Yuen Institute or wander the Fanling Walled Village. You can also take a trip to the outlying Cheung Chau, Stanley and Lamma Islands.  

There is much more in this amazing, interesting, modern yet historic location. The list is endless, the experiences will be unforgettable, and wonderful memories await.
