Overview Of The Port Of Hong Kong

About Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a special administrative region (SAR) of the People's Republic of China (PRC). It is situated on China's south coast.

Victoria Peak is the tallest mountain in the city, and the Peak Tram funicular railway takes visitors to the top for panoramic views of Victoria Harbour and Kowloon. The Peak Tower and Galleria complex at the top has restaurants and a museum. There is also walking trail here through lovely gardens. Note: this is an extremely popular attraction and it can get very busy.

The Peninsula Hotel and many other hotels offer their versions of the British afternoon tea.

There are many markets including the afternoon Ladies' Market along Tung Choi Street and Temple Street Night Market.

Hollywood Road is filled with antique shops and galleries and the surrounding area has many food shops selling a huge range of Chinese delicacies.

In Kowloon, the Tsim Sha Tsui area has shopping districts, colonial architecture and lovely parks. On Nathan Road is Kowloon Park featuring fountains, a rose garden and a waterfowl exhibit.

There are plenty of museums including the Museum of Art, Cultural Centre and Space Museum. Further away there is the Science Museum and the Museum of History.

Other attractions include the Yuen Po Bird Garden with a small Flower Market nearby, the Floating Fishing Village at Aberdeen on Hong Kong Island and the nightly laser show at 8pm, which can be seen from your ship.

Cheung Chau island is a perfect getaway for biking and walking as there are no cars on the island.

Lantau Island is home to superb beaches, scenic walks, a monastery with the world's largest seated bronze Buddha and Hong Kong Disneyland.

On Hong Kong Island opposite the high-rises, there are two beaches - Stanley Main Beach and St Stephen's beach. There are plenty of restaurants in the area as well as Stanley market. Also here is Ocean Park, which has rides, an aquarium and marine mammal exhibits.

From dim sum (little plates of tasty snacks), noodles and Peking duck and items such as bird's nest soup or shark fin soup, there are lots of choice here. The most popular type of cooking is Cantonese style.

Cruise ships dock at the new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, which opened in 2013. It is located in the heart of Victoria Harbour (at the south-eastern end of the former Kai Tak Airport runway).

The terminal offers panoramic views of the picturesque Hong Kong skyline.
