Getting around HK

Social event and entertainment


Lung Fu Shan Country Park (just behind the University of Hong Kong) was designated in 1998. It is the smallest country park in Hong Kong covering 47 hectares. Situated north of High West and south of Kotewall Road, its borders lie on Hatton Road in the east and Harlech Road in the south, while the west and north boundaries are marked by drains laid by the Water Supplies Department.

War ruins are major highlights of the park. Pinewood Battery and remains of old forts provide a perfect setting for a journey back in time. The Pinewood Picnic Site nearby is equipped with a rain shelter and barbecue stoves. Pinewood Battery was completed in 1905 as part of the Island West coastal defense line. This military relic is preserved within the protected realm of the country park, with interpretation panels to introduce its history.

Dinner at the Peak 

The Peak Lookout remains a historic and cultural landmark for all, offering elevated international cuisine in a nostalgic setting. Surrounded by lush greenery and panoramic views of Hong Kong’s skyline, The Peak Lookout promises an unforgettable experience that caters to the tastes of all, providing a timeless backdrop for special occasions of all sizes. Bask in the mountain breeze, and rediscover fond memories in a heritage building as you create new memories with loved ones in The Peak Lookout’s revitalized setting.

 Peak Tram 

The venerable Peak Tram is, as most passengers agree, the only way to truly experience the beauty of Hong Kong’s natural wonders. Tens of millions of people from every corner of the globe have taken the ride, which affords a uniquely spectacular perspective of the city.

The Peak Tram is a funicular railway in Hong Kong, which carries both tourists and residents to the upper levels of Hong Kong Island. Running from Garden Road Admiralty to Victoria Peak via the Mid-Levels, it provides the most direct route and offers good views over the harbour and skyscrapers of Hong Kong.

City Tram 

The Hong Kong tram, affectionately known by locals as the ‘Ding Ding’, is a unique form of transportation found on the bustling streets of Hong Kong Island. A ride on the beloved tram ― also an iconic symbol of Hong Kong ― is a journey through the city’s rich history, culture and everyday life. 

Harbour and Ferry

Even locals can’t get enough of Hong Kong’s magnificent skyline at dusk. It looks incredibly serene as it’s cast in hues of orange and pink, yet continues to bubble with action like recently popped champagne. This wonderful panorama is best experienced from the water on board a Hong Kong evening harbour cruise.

Sail back in time to 1920s Hong Kong on board the beautiful double-decker ‘Shining Star’ ferry, a recreation of the ferries that graced Victoria Harbour back in the Roaring Twenties. Let the evening sea breeze whisk your mind away as you soak in the magnificent views.
