Many of the best activities in Hong Kong involve simply getting out and about. The street life and street food, the magnificence of the harbour and the shopping will all fill an itinerary, but here are some particularly good ideas. Breakfast Tai Chi Class at The Peak The 360-degree views from The Peak on Hong Kong Island provide an essential perspective of the natural beauty of Hong Kong. Passing glimpses into the exclusive worlds and exotic mansions of Peak residents is all part of the enjoyment of the 30 minute bus ride up – or take the eight-minute trip via the world’s steepest funicular railway. At the top, the refreshing breeze and Tai Chi class (40 max.) with Mr Ng, one of Hong Kong’s best known masters, is followed by breakfast al fresco. A wonderful catalyst for group bonding at the start of the day. Essential Shopping Whether for international brands or interesting souvenirs, Hong Kong has shopping in spades, particularly in Kowloon. The biggest mall is Kowloon’s Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui for brand names across four sprawling levels. For a bazaar feel, take a group to the outdoor Ladies Markets in Mongkok for trinkets and the flower and bird markets further on. The place to head for the latest trends is Elements, set underneath soon- to-be Hong Kong’s tallest building, the ICC in Kowloon. Over in Admiralty, upscale Pacific Place features two department stores, including Lane Crawford. En route to drinks and dinner, a stroll down Hollywood Road passes amazing antique stores, full of jade and ancient Chinese curios. Food & Wine Hong Kong has endless opportunities to taste different cuisines, wines and cocktails in an array of wonderful settings.
