Hong Kong in 4 Days | Day 4



This is the 4th and final part of my "Hong Kong in 4 days" post, Day 4.

What to do on the last day in Hong Kong? I could easily write up a Day 5, 6, 7, & 8, but after a slight struggle, here's what I think would complete a trip for the best of HK. Day 1/2/3 can be found here, here and here.


Day 4

9am: Don't miss the chance of a dim sum breakfast; head over to University MTR, and grab a table at Sha Tin 18 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel
[The lovely garden at the Hyatt Hotel. Also the place we chose to have our wedding ceremony back in Dec 2012]

12pm: Catch the races at Sha Tin Racecourse, but if you miss one, just buy an entrance ticket and have a tour of the grounds.

2.30pm: Chill out with a luscious afternoon tea at Sevva in Central. A seat outside ensures a fantastic view over HK harbour (Afternoon tea available 2.30pm - 4pm Mon-Thur)


4.30pm: Visit The Flagstaff House at Admiralty MTR, before it closes daily at 6pm. The tea house museum within, is an integral part of Hong Kong. Follow on with a walk through Central & Sheung Wan.



10pm: At the airport after a wonderful 4 days. Don't miss a final taste of Hong Kong at Coral de Cafe at the departures!


And lastly, a few Tips for Hong Kong BEFORE you embark on this 4 day itinerary: 

1] Pop into customer services at the nearest MTR station and grab an Octopus card. Top up with cash and this will be the most convenient way to travel on public transport; no need to fumble for coins to pay for single fare tickets anymore! You can also use it to pay for goods at Seven Eleven and OK Circle 24/7 convenient stores, but I prefer to use mine just for travelling, so I can keep an eye on travel costs.

2] Keep a packet of tissues (or 10) with you at all times. Not all eateries provide napkins, and not all public toilets supply toilet paper!

3] No matter how hot the weather may seem, always bring a light jacket. Most indoor places & public transport have air-con on at full blast.

4] Most shops in HK don't open til 11am, but they do stay open til past 9pm.

5] For HK iconic and must eats, take a look at my post here.

6] If you are serious about eating in HK and prefer to have some recommendations, visit Open Rice - HK's eating guide by the locals.

7] If you can't live without the internet and don't want to rely on free wi-Fi at cafés etc, grab a HK SIM card with internet usage from Seven Eleven. They shouldn't be more than HK$250.

8] And finally, have a FANTASTIC time in Hong Kong, I can promise you that this will not be your last visit!
