72 Hours in Hong Kong

72 Hours in Hong Kong

Whether you’re here for a stopover or a long weekend, here are a few tips to make the most of your 72 Hours in Hong Kong. 



First things first, buy your self an Octopus Travel Card from the airport or railway station. Why? The card allows you to store money and get discounts on everything from public transport to restaurant meals. Can you really afford not to?

You step onto the MTR ready to hit Hong Kong, wondering where to visit first. Why not head straight to Wong Tai Sin Temple. The beautiful Temple is home to three religions, Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism. If you want to find out what the future holds, just shake a box of prayer sticks until one falls out, and have it interpreted by a fortune-teller!

Round off your day by kicking back at tranquil Repulse Bay. In 1841, the bay was used as a base for Pirates, but now you’re much more likely to find locals sunning themselves and eating at one of the many beachfront restaurants.


DAY 2 

Hong Kong 72 hour itinerary ideas

Rise and shine! Start your day with a bang, or a ‘ding ding’ on Hong Kong’s famous Double Decker Trams! Enjoy the views as the tram takes you for a spot of street food breakfast from Chu Yeung Street Market. 

After you’re fed, it’s time to seek out Yue Lao, also known as the Matchmaker!  The Matchmaker Statue is back at Repulse Bay. Make a certain shape with your fingers and tie a red ribbon to ensure a long and happy marriage. That was easy!

All aboard the Peak Tram to head to the best photo spot in Hong Kong. Soak in the incredible views of the city and maybe snap a selfie or two.

You can’t come to Hong Kong without sampling Dim Sum, and you’ve definitely earned it after a long day of exploring. Check out Yum Cha Café to sample the classic Cantonese dish.


DAY 3

It’s your last day in Hong Kong, here’s how to make it a good one. 

Jump aboard the Star Ferry to get spectacular views of Hong Kong from the water. The 8-minute ride is the most fun way to explore the harbour side attractions. Why not find time to try a bit of fishing with locals and see if you can catch anything!

Make sure you leave plenty of time to watch the Street Performers in Mong Kok, one of the best shopping districts in Hong Kong. Mime artists, dancers, human statues and much more all compete for your attention. Enjoy dipping in and out of performances as you walk through the bustling streets underneath the walls filled with neon lights. There’s so much to see!

When you’re ready for a sit down, head to a Jazz club in Lan Kwai Fong, or one of the many bars in the area. It’s a great place to check out live music, sample your last dish of Cantonese cuisine or do some people watching with a drink in hand. It’s been a busy weekend; you’ve earned it.
