Check out Victoria Peak
You can take the bus 15 from Central or hop on the Peak Tram, although they get very busy so it would be wiser to catch a taxi. It is one of the most popular attractions and the view is spectacular from the Sky Terrace (you will need to pay an entry fee), the free viewing platform and Lion’s Pavilion, so the best time to go is right before the sunset in order to see the skyline. If your heart is set on experiencing the Peak Tram, the ticket usually costs HK$94 but make sure you meet the guide at Central MTR Station Exit K, in order to bypass the massive lines.

First things first, 2/3 of the country is made up of the countryside and several islands, but the area which most tourists tend to explore is the northern edge of Hong Kong Island, where everything is well-connected by bus and train. You can go through Victoria Harbour towards Kowloon Island (HKD $2.20) by riding the Star Ferry from Central pier and tickets can be bought on the spot. Just make sure you plan a trip back because Hong Kong has a lot of top point of interest to offer!
Hong Kong is known for its sky-high prices for properties and if you walk around the streets, you will find that the cheapest unit comes at a price of around $2.8 million HKD, and that is why hotel rooms are high compared to other countries. In case you get lost, Google Maps‘ directions is your best friend, whenever you’re traveling to foreign countries.
