Hong Kong in 4 Days | Day 3



This is the 3rd part of my “Hong Kong in 4 days” post, Day 3.

Day 1 & 2 can be found here & here.


Day 3

8.30am: Start the day nice and early at the Big Buddha on Lantau Island, alight at Tung Chung MTR for the Ngong Ping Cable Car ride to the big Buddha. Pre-book a single trip here, this can save you 1-2 hrs of queuing on the day. A return trip on the cable car isn't necessary. The cable car takes you to the bottom of the ‘village’, a strip containing touristy shops and restaurants and leading towards the Big Buddha. After your climb to the Big Buddha, make sure you have your ticket for a free vegetarian meal in their canteen.



11am: From the Big Buddha, look out for signs for Tai O Village, which can be reached in 15 mins by local bus. Tai O is a traditional fishing village with houses built on stilts. Take a boat ride and if you’re lucky, you may spot a rare pink dolphin! Don’t forget to have a browse through the local markets with their plentiful dried seafood.

3pm: Head over to Causeway Bay for shopping and eating. Lane Crawford is a high-end department store that is also worth a browse, as is SOGO department store. Take a tram in any direction to experience nostalgic HK. Jump on from the back, and pay as you get off at the front.


8pm: HK’s famous Soho and night life area, Lan Kwai Fong (LKF) is a must visit. Pub/bar/club crawling and when you're done, hit the Wellington branch of Tsui Wah Cafe for a late night snack to soak up the alcohol.

Stay tuned for Day 4.
