Hong Kong was once a simple fishing village. Today, it is one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities where East truly meets West. See all the highlights of Hong Kong Island on this orientation tour. It is a fantastic way to get to know the city and its famous landmarks and history.
Start with a ride on the World’s steepest funicular railway, the Peak Tram! Pulled by steel cables, the tram climbs 373 metres (about 1,200 feet) and is so steep that the buildings you pass look like they’re leaning. Looking down from Victoria Peak, you’ll be amazed by the spectacular view of the surrounding city skyline, the world-famous Victoria Harbour and Kowloon, towering skyscrapers and peaceful green hillsides.
From Victoria Peak head onwards to the southside of the Island, continue your tour with a visit to Aberdeen, once home to hundreds of people living on fishing junks and Sampans it’s now juxtaposed against a modern high-rise community and Typhoon Shelter. Now the area is more akin to a Luxury Marina than the days of the “floating village” with only a few remaining signs of what once as surrounded by high-end yachts and houseboats. An optional 15-minute sampan ride can be arranged into the typhoon shelter for a close-up view of waterborne life (at own expense).
You will then move on to visit a well-known jewellery factory workshop in Aberdeen to learn about the process of the local jewellery creation and crafting.
Heading on from Aberdeen you will pass through picturesque Repulse Bay on your way to Stanley, a popular market town on the sunny south side of Hong Kong Island. Spend the remainder of your tour exploring Stanley’s relaxed ambience and markets where bargain buys have made it world famous.
