Hong Kong International Airport
Hong Kong International Airport is among the busiest airports in the world and firmly cements Hong Kong's position as an aviation hub. The passenger terminal is perhaps the world's largest enclosed space and it is certainly one of the most energy efficient buildings yet created. Although awe inspiring, the terminal's interior is not overwhelming. Reflected sunlight, a soaring arched roof and unobtrusive air-conditioning create a comfortable and natural ambience all year round.

•Stanley Market is the place to find silk garments, sportswear, art, Chinese costume jewellery, other souvenirs and a host of fantastic bargains. When the shopping is done, you can relax at one of the area's pleasant beaches set in sheltered, sandy coves. One is a favorite destination for Hong Kong's windsurfers. Stanley village also offers an appetizing range of restaurants and snack bars. •A trip to Stanley would not without a stop at Stanley Plaza which comprises a sixstorey shopping centre featuring shops and restaurants. Right next to it is Village Square which serves a outdoor performance venue. Adjacent to that is Murray House - a former British army officers' quarters and the oldest example of Western architecture. It was dismantled in 1982 and put back together again - brick by brick. Another colonial building worth a visit is the Old Stanley Police Station, one of the oldest surviving police stations. This landmark was built in 1859. You'll also find the Old Stanley Fort and a cluster of historic military sites.

Tsing Ma Bridge
Every year many millions of people use the Tsing Ma Bridge without getting a close-up view of this modern-day engineering accomplishment -- the world's longest suspension bridge carrying road and rail traffic. The explanation is that the Airport Express, which whisks them across the bridge, travels through one of two rail tunnels slung beneath the six-lane roadway. All are passengers who have either just arrived at Hong Kong's ultra-modern International Airport at Chek Lap Kok, or are hurrying there to catch their return flights. Most of them see this example of bridge-building genius at least from a distance during their stay in Hong Kong. The newest and greatest engineering marvel of this dynamic mega city, it is now Hong Kong's proud new landmark, massively imposing by day, and a twinkling fairyland of lighted lacework by night. Planning for a new airport operating 24 hours a day began in the 90s when it was obvious that the former Kai Tak Airport in urban Kowloon, limited by noise restrictions, could never cope with ever-increasing air traffic.

Big Buddha
Few statues anywhere in the world have such a powerful pull on the imagination as the Big Buddha gazing serenely on the Po Lin (Precious Lotus) Monastery from its hillside site at Ngong Ping on Lantau Island. The majestic figure of the seated Buddha is 26.4 meters high, was cast in China and took 10 years to complete. Weighing 220 tones, it was unveiled in 1993 amid deep religious ceremonies. If you dare, place in your hands a bamboo cylinder containing the fortune sticks, and shaking it, one numbered stick will finally and fall to the ground. Match it with the printed Fortune Paper and learn what the Fates have in store for you. Good luck!

Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree
A delight in this district is the Wishing Tree outside the Tin Hau Temple in Lam Tsuen. An ancient banyan, it is festooned with red and gold incense papers and other offerings thrown into its branches by the faithful . Adjoining trees thought to be equally lucky also bear their share of wishing papers. People pray for year-long peace by scribbling their dreams on slips of red paper tied to an orange with string. They then toss them into the air. If the lucky paper charm catches on the tree, it is said that the wish will be granted.

Happy Valley Racecourse
It was built on reclaimed marshland, the first races were held in 1846. They have been extremely popular ever since. Today, the track is ultra-sophisticated with computerized betting and races broadcast live on gigantic screens. Night racing was introduced at Happy Valley in 1973 and was an immediate success. The extra revenue raised was used to build Hong Kong's second racecourse at Sha Tin in the New Territories,

Teddy Bear Kingdom
One of the world's most popular children's toys, the teddy bear, now has a whole themed kingdom dedicated to it, located conveniently in Tsim Sha Tsui. Modelled on other teddy bear museums in Japan and South Korea, Hong Kong's Teddy Bear Kingdom is a celebration of this grand, lovable bear. Covering just over 70,000 square feet, one of the main attractions is sure to be the Teddy Bear Museum, which contains a fascinating collection of over 400 bears from around the world. You'll learn about the origins of the first teddy bear and see how it was slightly adapted by different countries.

Jumbo Floating Restaurant
Since its inception in 1976, the Jumbo Floating Restaurant has excelled in the preparation of seafood for discerning diners. This splendid restaurant has adopted a design that imitates that of an imperial palace. The Jumbo Floating Restaurant can accommodate up to 2,300 guests and employs more than 300 staff. This floating giant in Aberdeen - acclaimed as the world's largest floating restaurant - received the Hong Kong Award for Services in 2000 for its excellent food and services.

Over the years, the restaurant has become one of the most popular and representative tourist attractions in Hong Kong, winning the patronage of Queen Elizabeth II and superstars such as John Wayne, Yul Brynner and William Holden.

Lei Yue Mun Seafood Bazaar
Located on the Kowloon side of the narrow eastern entrance to Hong Kong Harbor, the small fishing village at Lei Yue Mun first came into prominence in the 1960s, when it became fashionable to go there for its seafood. At that time, most diners would select their own live seafood from the fish market, and then take it to a restaurant for cooking. Many still do, but with many more restaurants now in business, you can make your selection closer to your table. Restaurants arrange attractive promotions and offer special dishes to keep their tables busy, and local and visiting gourmets converge on the area to dine on superb seafood dishes washed down with wines, liquors or copious draughts of beer.

Lan Kwai Fong & SoHo
A cheerful warren of Western-style restaurants, nightclubs, delicatessens and bars, Lan Kwai Fong is an L-shaped, cobble-stoned lane just a stone's throw above Central's cluster of skyscrapers. Nearby lanes are also buzzing with bistros and pubs in what is Hong Kong's trendiest nightlife area. You'll soon discover Hong Kong's "SoHo", the area "South of Hollywood Road". The neighborhood offers a wide range of up market eateries and watering holes congregated mainly on Staunton, Shelley and Elgin streets. Here, you'll enjoy fare from New Orleans to Nepal, Mexico to Malaysia, Provence to Portugal. Above SoHo is the Mid-Levels, an exclusive residential area built on the lower slopes of Victoria Peak. The Central-Mid-Levels Escalator, the longest covered outdoor escalator system in the world, provides easy access to and from downtown, as well as fascinating insights into the diverse street life.

Ladies’s Market
It located at a section of Tung Choi Street between Argyle Street and Dundas Street, is a shopping place for both locals and tourists. The market operates from 12:00 noon to 10:30 pm, selling inexpensive items such as clothing for men and women of all ages, watches, handbags, cosmetics, accessories, small household items and toys. The market, renowned for good bargains, gets its name because it is particularly well-known in the early days for selling fashionable ladies' clothing.

A Symphony of Light (幻彩詠香江)
It is a world class multi-media light and sound show. It combines special interactive light and musical effects to tell the story of Hong Kong through showcasing the key buildings along the waterfront of the Victorian Harbor. The show is a brand new tourism project and is a permanent enhancement to our already spectacular harbor view.
