      Wondering what to do in Hong Kong?

      Hong Kong, a sprawling metropolis with an iconic steel and glass skyline made up of more skyscrapers than are found in any other city on earth, is a sensory feast in the truest sense. Wandering is always rewarded with a smorgasbord of incredible things to do in Hong Kong hidden around every corner. The downtown area is an inner-city playground kitted out with everything that makes a modern metropolis worth visiting, but away from the crowded city center, Hong Kong takes on a different appeal. Each enchanting neighborhood and island beckons with its own delightful things to do, while leafy mountains, sparkling ocean, and beautiful birdlife are just outside the city limits.

      Hong Kong is a thing of mind-blowing man-made beauty with an instantly recognizable skyline and a collection of world-famous skyscrapers. Many of the best things to do in Hong Kong are the things that make any futuristic metropolis a spectacular travel destination: fantastic food, amazing architecture, smooth transport, and beauty that becomes even more breathtaking at night. Whether you clatter along on a double-decker tram, shop up a storm at glitzy malls, or trawl a vast collection of museums and galleries, the things to do in Hong Kong are perfect snapshots of big city life.

      More than a metropolis

      Hong Kong isn’t all bright lights and sharp angles. What truly sets the city apart, in fact, is its natural beauty – the glittering Victoria Harbor, volcanic sea arches, and sprawling green spaces. Some of the best things to do in Hong Kong take place outside the city itself, in its leafy mountains and country parks. Hong Kong is also rich in culture – a combination of traditional Chinese roots, colonial influences, and Hong Kong’s own indigenous contributions. From traditional celebrations to the distinctive drumbeat of a dragon boat, glimpses of the city’s culture can be caught everywhere.

      Hong Kong is double as dazzling when the sun sets, and the list of things to do becomes longer. When you’re able to tear your eyes away from the mesmerizing city lights, explore the city’s nightlife districts, where buzzing venues range from dive bars to the swankiest clubs. If you’re not into the party scene, simply try some of the other things to do in Hong Kong at night. Atmospheric night markets are an excuse to sample the most famous of the city’s culinary offerings, from Hong Kong-style fish balls in satay sauce to dim sum prepared by a hawker who has perfected the art.

      Latest reviews from our guests

        We stayed for 4 hours with our guide Karen for a private tour in Hong Kong. Karen mixed different aspects of the city, from the must-see sites to the lesser-known. We regretted not having had more time to extend our visit with Karen. We highly recommend this tour, which is a far cry from the traditional tourist bus tour.

        We requested Simon's services through City Unscripted and they were very responsive in making that arrangement. Simon is a bright, engaging guide who, unlike some local guides, speaks excellent English. We had planned on using him on two separate days, but regrettably our cruise line changed the date we were touring with their guide, and we had to cancel one of our days with Simon. He was very understanding and accommodating, two characteristics we feel are essential to a successful tour. We enthusiastically recommend Simon for anyone seeking a custom, fluid tour.

        Our guide was Benny Lee. He arrived ahead of time at the meeting location and texted us. We had sent a message to Benny prior to our tour of the top Hong Kong sights to let him know our interests. Benny designed a fabulous custom tour that took us to all our top sights as well as a couple of interesting surprise locations such as the old prison! Benny was very knowledgeable about the city and sights and efficiently navigated us on the ferries, subways and buses. Before leaving us Benny gave us some great tips on the next private tour that we were planning for Lantau Island. We all had a great time with Benny and we would highly recommend him as a local expert. Thanks Benny for a great time!
