Alternative Attractions Text and photos by MICHELLE
ost people think of Hong Kong as a foodie and shopper paradise, but it is a lot more than just that! Concrete jungles aside, there are still a lot to do in Hong Kong! Let’s venture to the outskirts and discover more of Hong Kong aside from the usual Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.
Cheng Chau Island
This island is relatively unexplored. When there, you can basically walk around the village or rent a bike. Other attractions include Cheung Po Tsai Cave (you need a torch), The Reclining Rock, and Tung Wan Beach.
On a clear evening, the lighted skyscrapers are a magnificent sight. Catch the light show, which is a medley of lights, lasers, and LED screens at 8:00 p.m. Music is performed by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.
Avenue of Stars
It is located along Victoria Harbor. Here you will find handprints and plaques to honor Hong Kong’s famous celebrities.
