5 Days & 4 Nights in Hong Kong | Travel Date: February 2016
This is not a well recommended itinerary, but here’s our DIY HK trip that we had on Jan 30-Feb 3 2015. Temperature on these days was at 7′ C to 12 ‘ C. So blame the weather and their fast speed wifi, reasons why we were not able to make it to some places in HK :).
Day 1 ETA in HKG 10:30 AM
•Victoria Peak from the Afternoon – Evening to see the HK’s skyline
•Ride a Star Ferry from Hong Kong to Central
•Harbor City at Night to check out Symphony of Lights
•IF you still have time, you may visit the Avenue of the Stars
•And if you finished these by 9PM, you may go directly to Mong Kok for the Ladies’ Market.
*For Victoria Peak, usually the queue going back and forth is very high, so just be early if you still have things to catch up.
HKD700, MyBigBus Route + Ocean Park + Victoria Peak
Day 2 Lantau Island
•Ngong Ping 360 – As early as you could so that you could go straight to Disneyland. Same with Victoria Peak, there is a high queue waiting for the cable car.
•Citygate – if you still have time to shop
•Disneyland- make sure to be there before 3 PM for the Parade of Stars. •Check out the schedule for the shows.
•9 PM – Fireworks
Day 3 Ocean Park & Stanley Market
•Since these places are several meters away from each other , you might wanna spend whole day in the Ocean Park and have your dinner and last minute shopping at Stanley Market
* We actually haven’t had the chance to go to Ocean Adventure because it was raining that time and we fell in love at Stanley and spent our whole afternoon there. Thing to remember when in Stanley market: Haggle.
