The best sights to see, places to eat, and things to do in Hong Kong.
Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple 嗇色園黃大仙祠
There's a practical approach to prayer at one of Hong Kong's most exuberant places of worship, the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple. Here the territory's three major religions---Taoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism---are all celebrated under the same roof.

Ocean Park Hong Kong 香港海洋公園
Most Hong Kongers have fond childhood memories of the aquatic theme park, Ocean Park. It was built by the omnipresent Hong Kong Jockey Club on 170 hilly acres overlooking the sea just east of Aberdeen.

Victoria Peak 太平山
As you step off the Peak Tram at Victoria Peak a sharp intake of breath and bout of sighing over the view will cure the feeling that you left your stomach somewhere down in Central Hong Kong.

Inside One Peking, an impressive curvaceous skyscraper, Aqua Spirit is a very cool bar is on the mezzanine level of the top floor. The high ceilings and raking glass walls offer up unrivaled views of Hong Kong Island and the harbor filled with ferries and ships.

Tung Po Kitchen 東寶小館
Arguably Hong Kong's most famous—if not most perpetually packed—indoor dai pai dong, Tung Po has communal tables large enough to fit 18 guests and the restaurant's walls are scribbled with their ever-growing list of specials.
Tian Tan Buddha (Giant Buddha) 天壇大佛
Hong Kongers love superlatives, even if making them true requires strings of qualifiers. So the Tian Tan Buddha is the world's largest Buddha---that's seated, located outdoors, and made of bronze.

Fa Zu Jie
Fa Zu Jie is good, really, really good. Tucked away in a nondescript building in a hidden alley off Lan Kwai Fong, this reservations-only private kitchen in Hong Kong plates up inventive French-inspired Shanghainese dishes that are prepped in a polished open kitchen.
