TEMPLE STREET NIGHT MARKET

Running from 6pm – 11pm, you can get to the market from MTR Yau Ma Tei Station – exit C or MTR Jordan Station – exit A. Numerous sellers offer everything from souvenirs to watches, antiques to tea ware; head to the market to try some Hong Kong street food and enjoy the hustle and bustle of a night market.

 

HONG KONG PARK

A beautiful park in an urban landscape, Hong Kong Park is a great place to explore, relax and take some time out of the hustle and bustle of the city. The park includes a greenhouse, a museum of Tea Ware, the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre, an array of fountains and lily ponds as well as a waterfall, playgrounds and even a marriage registry. Head to the MTR Admiralty Station, exit C1 and follow the signs to Hong Kong Park up the escalator.

 

TEN THOUSAND BUDDHA’S MONASTERY

Open from 10 am – 5 pm and with no entrance fee, take exit B at Sha Tin Station, pass the traditional houses, and take a left onto Pai Tau Street then a right onto Sheung Wo Che Street. The 10 Thousand Buddhas Monastery is a unique temple with over 10,000 Buddhas within its complex – hence the name.

 

MAN MO TEMPLE

Open 8 am to 6 pm with free admission, catch the 26 bus to get to the Man Mo Temple. This is one of Hong Kong’s oldest temples and much quieter and smaller than other Hong Kong temples; making it my favourite authentic temple in Hong Kong.

Visiting Victoria Peak for Amazing Views of Hong Kong - Two Traveling Texans

Sunday 6th of January 2019

[…] I don’t think you can say you have visited Hong Kong if you have not gone to Victoria Peak.  Not only is there the iconic tram but you will also find some of the best views in Hong Kong.  I went on my first trip to Hong Kong about 10 years ago, and since I enjoyed it so much I wanted to take my friend Courtney there on our trip.  Next time, I plan on going again, but I will allocate at least a half day so that I can explore more.  Even if you only have 1 day in Hong Kong, make some time to go to the Peak!  It’s one of the top things to do in Hong Kong.
