Deluxe Tour of Hong Kong
Named the Fragrant Harbour, Hong Kong reveals its beauty once you meet your English-speaking guide and set out on your way. The comfortable motor coach takes you to the Lowe Peak Tram terminus in the Central District where you will board a Peak Tram - the city's historic, funicular railway since 1888, for the ascent to Victoria Peak. This is a visual experience in its own right as Hong Kong Island's skyscrapers slide past your window at what appears to be impossible angles. Once atop Victoria Peak, you will have a bird's eye view of the entire city known for its spectacular skyline and deep harbor.
Next, you'll take an unforgettable ride on the Peak Tram en-route to Victoria Peak. Steel cables pull the tram 1,223 feet. Pass buildings that may appear to be leaning as you approach the Sky Terrace atop Victoria Peak. The Kowloon peninsula, Victoria Harbour, and skyscrapers are all seen, just as if they were on a postcard.
Thereafter, you'll visit nearby Aberdeen - a once quiet fishing village, but now a bustling district where modernity meets tradition with skyscrapers overlooking a community living on traditional junks. The typhoon shelter is also a popular seafood dining spot and home to one of the world's largest floating restaurants. An optional ride on the sampan (water taxi) can be arranged at your own expense.
You will also have an opportunity to have a dim sum lunch at the Jumbo Floating Restaurant. This iconic restaurant has served the likes of Queen Elizabeth II and Tom Cruise, and is a staple in Hong Kong cuisine.
Finally, you will drive via the popular Repulse Bay to reach the legendary, open-air Stanley Market. There are bargains to be had here when shopping for everything from silk scarves to luggage, and paintings are rumored to be bought at incredibly good prices.
