On day two, your goals might be to beat the morning crowds headed to see the Big Buddha, and get to the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront to catch the pm laser & light show. Grab a coffee and then head to any of Hong Kong’s parks to watch local residents going through the graceful movements of tai chi (kind of like kung fu in slow motion).
The best HK parks for watching are: Hong Kong Park, Victoria Park, the Zoological & Botanical Gardens, or Kowloon Park (if you’re staying on that side of the harbor).
Or hop off on either Hollywood Road or Staunton Street and walk west to the heart of So Ho (South of Hollywood), where you’ll find even more dining options.
The area has a wide range of international cuisine—from Asian fusion to Nepalese to Mexican.
In Central, you can hop on the tram at Des Voeux Road Central (the best seats are in the front on the upper deck).
Riding at night is pretty cool too (just avoid morning and evening rush hour peak times).
The mid-level escalators start out at Queen’s Road Central.
[ the Mid-Levels Escalators are also shown on the Central MTR station map ] You can take the escalators all the way up on Shelley street to check out all the bars and restaurants along the way (and then walk back down).
While you’re in the neighborhood in So Ho, take a post-lunch stroll to the Hollywood Road.There are high-end, real antique shops in this area…but unless you know your stuff, you’re better off checking out the little shops and flea market-like outdoor stalls on Upper Lascar Row (or “Cat Street,” parallel to Hollywood Rd, one street north).Souvenir-hunters could spend a while just browsing through all of the cool crap: fake but cool antique Omega watches, old HK (and Bruce Lee) photos/posters, figurines, and all kinds of unique gifts and Chinese knick knacks.[ Note: above parks—and all these other attractions—are shown on above interactive Google map ] By now, you’re probably hungry.What better time for Cantonese’s most famous cuisine, dim sum?
