Hong Kong is one of the most favorite
Top Places In Hong Kong
1. Fishing Village – Tai O Tai O is one of the few remaining fishing villages in Hong Kong. It is also called the Venice of Hong Kong. Because of its stilt houses from the 19th century with unique settings. Tai O is known for its fishing culture with a seafood market. You will experience a very different Hong Kong from high rises and city life.
2. Kowloon Walled City Park – After the Second World War, an influx of immigrants occupied Kowloon. The city was well known for drugs, prostitution, criminal hide-outs, small shops, dentists, and doctors without a license, etc. The police would rarely enter the city because it had secret staircases and maze of passages with their own laws. An estimated 33,000 people lived within the Walled City and it was the densest populated area in the world. In ’87 the authorities decided to demolish it. They started in ’93. And two years later they opened a park.
3. Noonday Gun – Noonday gun is located on the first plot in Hong Kong to be sold by public auction in 1841 and was purchased by Jardine Matheson. The origin of the Jardine’s noonday gun salute is shrouded in the mists of time, but the story goes that on one occasion, the salute annoyed a senior naval officer. It is said that, as a penalty, Jardine was ordered to fire a noonday gun as a time signal to Hong Kong. I know, a complicated story. And I’m literary reading from the flyer. The gun is still fired every day at noon.
4. A Symphony of Lights – Symphony of Lights is recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s ‘Largest Permanent Light. Sound Show’ that celebrates the energy, spirit, and diversity of Hong Kong. This multimedia show involves more than 40 buildings on both sides of the Victoria harbor. It starts at 8 p.m. every day.
5. Bruce Lee Statue – Bruce Lee Statue is a memorial figure to honor the deceased martial artist, Bruce Lee. The statue is located in the Avenue of Stars that pays tribute to the names that helped make Hong Kong the ‘Hollywood of the East’. They are repairing the avenue so they moved all the statues on different location nearby. The renovation should be completed by the end of 2018.
