What could be more dynamic and energizing than 3 days in Hong Kong; a veritable sprint around the Pearl of the Orient, this captivating hybrid of East and West? It’s a winding maze of civilization, a clash of ancient tradition and garish neon, one that you will want to get lost in and – and if you aren’t careful, somewhere you might really get lost. In this expansive jungle of steel, glass and concrete a bit of insider help certainly won’t go amiss, so I have put together all you need to explore Hong Kong in 72 hours. A fishing village turned economic power-house, Asia’s financial hub is a wealth-spring of urban Asian delights, and paired with the outlying islands and natural wonders to explore there are simply so many things to do in Hong Kong in 3 days that you will need all the help you can get in order to plan. With my 3 day itinerary for Hong Kong you’ll be munching on dim sum, browsing budget-friendly markets, frequenting ancient temples and dining with the locals in no time!
