Top Hong Kong Experiences

Hong Kong really surprised me (Liz) on my first visit.  I traveled to Hong Kong on a complete whim — totally last minute…and alone!  Yet, I had one of the BEST vacations of my entire life!

Luckily, when Josh and I decided to live overseas for a few years we had the opportunity to live & teach English in Guangzhou, China — which is right near Hong Kong.  So we were able to visit Hong Kong regularly for weekend trips.  Turns out, Josh loves Hong Kong as much as I do, and we highly encourage travelers to visit this AMAZING city.

There’s more to Hong Kong than just the bustling, international city center.  Explore the many districts of Hong Kong to discover the Chinese / Cantonese culture.  Explore the many islands of Hong Kong to do some hiking and beach hopping — in fact, Hong Kong is an outdoor paradise with hiking and biking trails (you can even camp on the beach).  Don’t forget to visit the giant Buddha on Lantau Island, and possibly take a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland!

Even though accommodations in Hong Kong can be spendy, they are many cheap & unique accommodations in Hong Kong as well as plenty of free activities in Hong Kong to save money as well.  And with the awesome transportation in Hong Kong, you’ll be able to zip around the city and countryside with no problem.  So whether you decide to take in a museum, explore old fishing villages, or just relax on a Hong Kong beach – a visit to Hong Kong is always a good idea!
