Attractions for returning visitors - please recommend

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm planning for itinerary of 6D5N Macau + HK trip in April 2012 as our honeymoon trip.

Having been to HK in 2009 together, we have already visited the major attractions such as the following:

The Peak Tram and The Peak Tower (Central, Hong Kong Island)

The Golden Bauhinia Square (Wan Chai, Hong Kong Island)

Ocean Park (Aberdeen, Hong Kong Island)

Lan Kwai Fong (Night life at Central, Hong Kong Island)

A Symphony of Lights (Laser show at Victoria Harbourfront, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon)

Avenue of Stars (Along Victoria Harbourfront, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon)

Clock Tower (Along Victoria Harbourfront, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon)

Snoopy world (Shatin, New Territories)

Hong Kong Disneyland (Lantau Island, Outlying Island)

Big Buddha / Po Lin Monastery (Lantau Island, Outlying Island)

Ngong Ping 360 (Lantau Island, Outlying Island)

I've been reading recommendations by Northasian (many thanks for the help in organizing my then 2009 HK trip) in


but would like to further filtering down the good ones.

My wife suggested to visit some non-urban attractions such as Cheung Chau Island & Lamma Island but I am unsure if these places worth traveling to.

Kindly share your thoughts, not only for me but for those who have visited HK (& Macau) before.

Thanks in advance

Hi Kim Hoong, welcome to HK again~ :) Yep, you're right, if you've visited those major tourist spots, it's better for you to explore some niche tourist spots like outlying island or some not-too-tourist-oriented spots.

Cheung Chau and Lamma Island are pretty much the same, with Cheung Chau being more happening, so I would recommend you to visit Cheung Chan than Lamma. You can spend most of the day there.

Besides Cheung Chau, you can visit Ma Wan, which is a residential + leisure island close to Tsing Ma Bridge, so it is also a very good place for viewing Tsing Ma Bridge. You can take a look at the photo album that I posted on facebook page before: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.57697397992.58598.30006872992&type=3

Also, you can consider to visit Kadoorie Farm which is mainly for hiking and when you hike up to the top, you can enjoy magnificent view from there: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.501866647992.259512.30006872992&type=3

Have you visited Stanley in your last trip? It's nice to pay a visit too, as you can also enjoy nice view on the bus heading to Stanley. On the way, do drop by Repulse Bay to take a look at all those luxury apartments along the beach. Please refer my photo album of Stanley here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.483177537992.247832.30006872992&type=3

If you like Chinese garden landscape, you can visit Nan Lian Garden: http://www.nanliangarden.org/

Please let me know if you've specific interest in any kind of places, e.g. heritage, museum, natural & scenic...etc. Then see if I could think of any special places to suggest~ ^^

For us, mostly we are going for food and shopping.

If you can also list down attractions from Macau, it will be even better!

6D5N, we are still considering how many days for Macau and how many days for HK! Then only we can start hunting for accommodations.
