    Shopping. Seriously though, probably Victoria Peak.

    We were full-on tourists in Hong Kong for a long weekend, and I thought the national sport was shopping too. But we loved our trip up to Victoria Peak on the tram and wandering around once we were there. Star Ferry was another "glad I ticked it off the list" experience. We loved having dim sum at a largely local's only restaurant in Kowloon. Also, we took the ferry over to Macau for an overnight. Magic. Have a great time...

    I just looked at a top ten list and what was missing was probably Soho escalators, high tea at the Peninsula Hotel, Lamma Island day-trip, Dragon's Back hike to Shek-O . . . all a lot cheaper than some of the stuff here, and I'd probably put Temple Market as #2:

    i LOVE the peak!!!!! It's probably the best thing I saw in Hongkong and Mongkok market was the second since the shopping was so cheap!

    As most before me have said, the peak is probably the #1 place to visit. The views are pretty incredible and there are a bunch of places to eat around the top (not always reasonably priced, but still...). Also, I recommend walking down when you're done, it's not too difficult and the views of Hong Kong at night are priceless.

    There's so much to see in Hong Kong so the most famous attraction is going to be tough! As mentioned the view at the top of Victoria Peak is incredible. But the view from the other side on Tsim Tsa Tsui is great too. At 8pm every night here you can watch the symphony of lights where the skyscrapers turn into an awesome light show. On the same promenade you can also see the Bruce Lee statue and Avenue of Stars where celebrities like Jackie Chan left their hand prints. The Intercontinental Hotel nearby does a great buffet too!

    The most famous one is probably the Peak. However, don't miss taking the Star Ferry, the nightly laser and light show in Victoria Harbour, trying some local food and snacks such as Dim Sum or Curry Fish balls.

    Hello guys! Well I may say The peak is one of the famous attraction in Hongkong, and Disneyland as well. But let me share to you, Temple Street Night Market is one of my favorite places in Hongkong. My cousins and I bought something for our Grandparents, the souvenirs were nice! We really enjoyed the stay, and of course Hongkong Disneyland my forever dreamland and also don't forget to visit Hongkong Ocean Park, no regrets! Still looking forward to visit again.
