Star Ferry Cruise 天星小輪

Hong Kong Star Ferry | Turista Boy

If you want to experience traversing Victoria Harbour, hop on a Star Ferry! This iconic green-and-white boat has been in operation since 1888. This tourist attraction in itself mainly services Tsim Sha Shui (Kowloon Side) and Central (HK Island Side). This is a perfect way to experience the harbor in an inexpensive way. The fare on Star Ferry ranges from HK$ 4 – 6.50 (Ph₱ 30 – 50)!

Dubbed as the “Heartbeat of Hong Kong” and also known as “HKOW,” the Hong Kong Observation Wheel is one of the main attractions in Hong Kong Island. This 42-gondola wheel can fit 8 persons per gondola and you can get a nice view of the Victoria Harbour just right in front of the Park and Pier. Ticket prices to the HKOW is at HK$ 20 – 40 (Ph₱ 145 – 290) for adult passengers.

“Ding Ding” Tram

In operation since 1908, the Hong Kong Tramways has been a staple mode of transportation in the northern coast of Hong Kong Island. It has since been a symbol of modern Hong Kong and how it played a vital role in shaping Hong Kong’s history. When I rode the Ding Ding, the experience got me excited because it was my first time riding a tram! It now operates on 6 major routes and the fare only costs HK$ 3 (Ph₱ 22) for adults and the trams are usually seen in Hong Kong Island.

The Peak Tram 山頂纜車

The Peak Tramways Company Ltd. aka “The Peak Team,” is also one of the famous tours you have to experience when visiting Hong Kong. This particular Tramway was the first cable funicular in Asia when it opened in 1888. At the end of The Peak Tram ride is the Sky 428 View Deck where you can get a panoramic view of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Area together with the Victoria Harbour. The roundtrip ticket price for the tram + admission to the Sky 428 is at HK$ 148 (Ph₱ 1075).

Standing 428 meters above sea level, the Sky Terrace 428 is the highest viewing terrace in Hong Kong. This is one of the attractions to visit after riding The Peak Tram. The regular entrance fee to the Sky Terrace 428 for adults is HK$ 75 (Ph₱ 545). If you avail of a “combo ticket,” meaning you will purchase a ticket for The Peak Tram and Sky Terrace 428 in one bundle, it would cost only HK$ 148 (Ph₱ 1075). The Sky 428 View Deck is open daily from 1000 H – 2200 H (Monday – Friday); and 0800 H – 2200 H (Saturday – Sunday).

Strategically located in Stanley Street, Central, Yat Lok Restaurant is one of the best restaurants I have tried in Hong Kong. Their famous roasted duck with chest in noodles costs HK$ 76 (Ph₱ 540) and HK$ 20 (Ph₱ 142) for their in-house milk tea.

Lan Fong Yuen 蘭芳園

Founded in 1952, Lan Fong Yuen has been an institution in itself as it is believed to be the origin of the “stocking milk tea.” This historic cha chaan teng also offers pork chop bun, french toast, and chicken noodles and is also one of the oldest existing milk tea shops in Hong Kong. I have tried their traditional iced milk tea at HK$ 28 (Ph₱ 200).
