Hong Kong Island is the island that gives the territory its name. Although it is not the largest part of the territory, it is the place that many tourists regard as the main focus.
The parade of buildings that make the Hong Kong skyline has been likened to a glittering bar chart that is made apparent by the presence of the waters of Victoria Harbour.

What is Worth Seeing
Victoria Peak. Peak Tower serves not only as an observation platform, it also doubles as a shopping mall offering shops, fine dining and museums. The Peak Tram runs from Central to the bottom of the Peak Tower.
Although views of Kowloon and Victoria Harbour can be stunning, be prepared for the view to be spoilt by air pollution. There is no point in spending extra money to visit the observation deck of the Peak Tower. There are a number of nice walks around the Peak Tower that offers similar, if not nicer, views of all sides of the island.
The Victoria Peak Tram, Hong Kong.
I’ve got a chance to ride one of many historic public transportation in town. This tram travels at approx. 15-20 km/h at 20-40 degrees angle and heads directly to The Peak Tower.
There are a variety of museums in Hong Kong with different themes, arguably the best museum is the Hong Kong Museum of History in Kowloon, which gives an excellent overview of Hong Kong’s fascinating past. Not the typical pots-behind-glass format of museums you find elsewhere in China. Innovative galleries such as a mock-up of a colonial era street make history come to life.
Kowloon also includes a number of other interesting museums such as Dialogue in the Dark, the International Hobby and Toy Museum, Museum of art, Hong Kong science Museum and Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre.
Central also has its share of museums including Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum, Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences, which shows how the heathcare system evolved from traditional Chinese medicine to modern Western medicine, and the Visual Arts Centre.
New Territories has the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, which will appeal to those who have a serious interest in Chinese culture, and the Hong Kong Railway Museum.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort opened in September, 2005. It is on Lantau Island, about 12km east of Hong Kong International Airport. The resort also features a Disneyland park, two resort hotels and a lake recreation centre. Though significantly smaller in size than other Disneyland-style parks elsewhere, the park is undergoing an expansion to offer more attractions.
Ocean Park is on the southern side of Hong Kong island, and is the park that grew up with many local people.

EATING AND DRINKING.
Cuisine plays an important part in many peoples’ lives in Hong Kong. Not only is it a showcase of Chinese cuisines with huge regional varieties, but there are also excellent Asian and Western choices.
Dim sum is possibly the best known Cantonese dish. Served at breakfast and lunch, these delicately prepared morsels of Cantonese cuisine are often served with Chinese tea.
Siu mei is port roasted over an open fire or a huge wood burning rotisserie oven. With the addition of a slightly crispy honey sauce layer, the final taste is of a unique, deep barbecue flavour.
Congee is a thin porridge made with rice boiled in water. Served at breakfast, lunch or supper, the best version is as soft as “floss”, it takes up to 10 hours to cook the porridge to reach this quality.
Noodles, Wonton noodles are dumplings usually made from minced prawn but may contain small amounts of pork.
As with the rest of China, tea is a popular beverage in town, and is served at practically every eatery. Chinese teas are the most commonly served, though many places also serve Western-style milk tea.
