This mini-guide was created for those of you who have only 48 hours in Asia's World City and want to make the most of it, as it covers most of Hong Kong's most popular attractions and sightseeing-spots in a smart way that prevents you from wasting your precious time… Enjoy your short holiday Hong Kong ! Day 1: Victoria Peak, riding Hong Kong's famous 'Ding Ding Tram' to the historic streets of Sheung Wan, where all sorts of authentic shops still sell their "exotic" goods, Hollywood Road, Hong Kong's SoHo, Ngong Ping scenic cable-car ride, Po lin Monastery and the 'Big Buddha', Stanley Market, and a pleasant evening (with dinner) in Stanley… 6:30am: Our day starts from Victoria Peak. "The Peak", as it is commonly known, is probably Hong Kong's most popular tourist attraction, boasting world-class views of the city and Victoria Harbour, which look as if they were taken from a postcard… When reaching "The Peak", you can simply enjoy your morning coffee and croissant on the terrace at Pacific Coffee.

The Peak Tram can be boarded at the Lower terminus, on 33 Garden Road, daily, 7am – 12midnight (See the guide-map to Peak Tram Lower Terminus)

 Daily, 24 hours a day, entrance is free.

Bus No. 15 runs daily, 6am – 12 midnight: It departs from "Central" (next to the Star Ferry Terminus) and passes through the bus terminus at Exchange Square (next to Central MTR station) and Admiralty (MTR Admiralty Station, exit C-1)

To get to Victoria Peak: You can either ride the 120 years old Peak Tram (a real "must do"), or take the bus (very scenic road), but the best option is to combine them both… (One way tram + one way bus).

Green minibus No. 1 departs from the bus interchange, next to Hong Kong Station - Exit A1 (direct link through Central MTR Station), daily, 6:30 am - 12 midnight.


Circa 8:30 - 9am: Moving onwards, to Sheung Wan and some of Hong Kong's most historic streets… We go down from "the Peak" to Queensway, in Central, as follws: If you decided to take bus No. 15 from "the Peak": Drop off outside Bank of China Tower , Turn right as you leave the bus and walk a few steps along the road (the tramway tracks should be on your right), until you see the tram-stop. If you used the Peak Tram: Walk down from the terminus along Garden Road, for a minute or two, and turn right to the small street opposite St. John's Cathedral (next to Murray Building) and at the end left, to Cotton Tree Drive which will bring you down to the corner of Queensway, where the tramway stop can be found, just opposite Lippo Centre (stick to the right as you walk down Cotton Tree Drive, next to the wall of the park). Take the westbound tramway (station should be marked with W) from here to Western Market, in Sheung Wan. The "Ding Ding Tram", as it is locally nicknamed, has been rattling along the north shore of Hong Kong Island since 1904, passing through the central business and-shopping districts of Sheung Wan, Central, Admiralty, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, Happy Valley and Shau-kei-Wan, and providing easy access to most shopping malls and attractions.

Hong Kong's oldest surviving market building was inaugurated well over a century ago and features beautiful Edwardian architecture, with red bricks and granite arches. Nowadays, it is actually a shopping mall, with shops that specialize mainly in arts and crafts, although there are a few good fabrics shops here too, as well as a restaurant or two, and some nice cafés  Daily from 10am – 7pm (Website)

From here, we will take a stroll through Sheung Wan. The old streets where Hong Kong started to develop from, one hundred and seventy years ago, boast many traditional Chinese shops that sell all sorts of "exotic" products and look as if they belong to another era… Start your walk from Man Wa Lane (Chop Alley), where you can find small stalls of chop-makers: The chops are traditional Chinese stamps and seals, engraved on various materials like wood, bamboo, stone, bone and the likes... To get here : Walk out of Western Market to Morrison Street and turn left, along the tramway tracks, to Des Voeux Road Central and after a few minutes' walk (on the right pavement), turn right to the lane (the entrance is next to CITIC Ka Wah Bank( From Man Wa Lane, turn right to Wing Lok Street (popularly known as Ginseng and bird's nest St.). At the end of the street turn left to Des Voeux Road West (Dried Seafood Street), left again to Ko Shing Street (Herbal Medicine Street), right to Queen Street, right again to Queen's Road West and left to Hollywood Road. Although Hong Kong one of the best publictransport systems in the world, taking the Hong Kong City Hop-on Hop-off Tour is highly recommended, as it takes you directly to the various attractions and saves you the time and hassle of waiting for a bus or walking… Hollywood Road, Hong Kong's first constructed road, and the small streets around it, are packed with galleries and knick-knack shops that sell everything, from expensive porcelain ware and Ming dynasty ceramic, to Chinese furniture and kitsch Maoist memorabilia, and is a great place to visit even if you are not buying anything, as some of these shops (especially the expensive galleries) really look like "mini museums"... There are also some sightseeing spots along the historic road, such as Possession Point, in Hollywood Road Park (The spot where British forces have first set foot on Hong Kong soil, during the 1840s First Opium War), Man Mo Temple (An 1847 Chinese temple, full of spiritual ambience and aromatic incense coils) and Upper Lascar Row (Cat Street), where you can find plenty of colorful street stalls.


Ladder Street, next to Man Mo Temple, is composed entirely of stone steps. In the old days there were some funeral homes around this area and when people died, their bodies were rested here for funeral services before they were carried to their home villages, back in China. You can walk down Ladder St. to get to Upper Lascar Row (Cat Street). Climbing up Ladder Street will bring you to Bridges Street (turn right from Ladder, when going up) and Tai Ping Shan Street: A historic street, where an interesting 1850s ancestral hall can be visited. Tai Ping Shan is the continuation of Bridges, which means it is parallel to Hollywood (above it). You can also access it from Po Yan Street, which branches off Hollywood next to Hollywood Road Park. A few more minutes along Hollywood Road will bring you to SoHo, Hong Kong's hip dining and nightlife precinct, which unlike London's Soho, got its name as a result of its location: South of Hollywood Road… The small, old streets are lined with nice cafés and resto-bars that offer a quieter ambience than that of LKF (most of the venues are scattered along Elgin, Peel, Staunton and Shelley streets). Keep walking a few more steps along Hollywood Road and you will get to the Former Central Police Station, which was initially built in 1864 and comprises some of the nicest colonial buildings in Hong Kong. At the time of writing, the Former Central Police Station compound is about to become a shopping and entertainment complex, which means the classic buildings will be restored and renovated soon and brought back to their heydays. Explore Hong Kong's less known gems through our range of unique day trips and guided walks.

From the Police Station you can walk down Pottinger Street, with its historic granite steps and its little shops, turn left to Lyndhurst Terrace and climb up to the corner of Cochrane Street... At this point, you can take a ride on the world's longest outdoor covered escalator system, which connects Central with the upper parts of Mid-levels. There are some great shopping and entertainment areas along the escalator's route, such as Gage Street Market (below Hollywood), Stanley Street and "The Lanes".

How about an authentic Hong Kong breakfast ? Sheung Wan and the western (older) part of Central are home to some of Hong Kong's most popular and authentic breakfast joints… Lin Heung Tea House, on 160-164 Wellington Street (Corner of Aberdeen: right under Hollywood Road and Gage Street) is an extremely popular yum-cha institution that has been serving scrumptious Dim sum and excellent Cantonese cuisine for years, at a very good price. Lin Heung Kui (蓮香居) on the 2nd floor of 46-50 Des Voeux Road West, in Sheung Wan (not far from the Western Market), is the younger sibling of Lin Heung Tea House and serves a pretty similar fare... Sang Kee Congee Shop (生記粥品專家) on 7-9 Burd Street, in Sheung Wan (5 minutes' walk from the "chop alley") serves some of the best congee in Hong Kong at a very affordable price. Sing Heung Yuen (胜香园), one of Hong Kong's last remaining 'Dai pai dong' (street food stalls) and possibly the best and most famous among them, is almost like a living museum... It has been there for yonks and made a name for itself for its simple and delicious fare, like Beef and Noodle in Tomato Soup (茄牛面) , Tomato and Egg with Macaroni and the ultimate Crispy toasted bun with lemon and honey… Located on 2 Mee Lun Street (corner of Gough Street, just off Aberdeen St)

Circa 11:30: Heading to Ngong Ping, Po Lin Monastery and the "Big Buddha" Walk down Pottinger Street all the way to the corner of Des Voeux Road Central, where you turn right (after crossing the road) and walk for a minute along Des Voeux before turning left to tiny Douglas Street, where the entrance to Hong Kong MTR Station can be found. From here, we travel with the MTR all the way to Tung Chung, which is the last station on the orange marked Tung Chung Line. A few steps walk from exit B of MTR-Tung Chung Station will bring you to the Cable Car Lower Terminus, from where you board the cable car for a 6km of scenic ride above the steep mountains of Lantau Island, up to Po Lin Monastery and the Big Buddha, right next to it.


The monastery was built in the picturesque highlands of Lantau almost a century ago by three Zen masters who arrived here from the Jin Shan Monastery of Zhe Jiang, looking for a peaceful and secluded place, but it was the colossal statue of the seated Buddha that came up in the early 1990s and turned this area into one of Hong Kong's most popular attractions… Later on, the famous cable car came up and the somewhat kitschy "tourist village"… But there are still more than a few nice walking trails around the area, for those who want to get away from it all.  Daily: 10am – 6pm (9:30am – 6:30pm on Weekends & Public Holidays). Entrance fees apply (Info on Ngong Ping Pricing and Packages)
