With a cityscape that seemingly juts straight out of the sea, Hong Kong blends sleek modernity with centuries-old charm. Visits here should start with a ride on the world's steepest funicular railway to The Peak, the highest point on the island. From various viewing platforms atop this promontory, you can see the full expanse of the city, Victoria Harbor, Kowloon Peninsula and the mountains beyond. Snap photos in front of the emblem of Hong Kong in Golden Bauhinia Square, take in the scenery while strolling the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade and experience the dichotomy of the Aberdeen district, where skyscrapers tower over locals residing on fishing boats. The Ocean Park theme park features a wildlife exhibit with pandas, while Lantau Island, accessible via cable car, is home to a 111-foot-tall Buddha statue. At Stanley Market, bargains abound on jewelry, ornaments and Chinese novelties.
