Hong Kong in two days? It’s possible, especially because the city is so compact and public transportation is so efficient. Top of everyone’s list, of course, is quite literally that–The Peak–which at 1,811 feet is Hong Kong’s tallest mountain. Don’t bother taking the Peak Tram, however, if it’s at all foggy or smoggy, because you won’t be able to see a damn thing (mornings are generally a safer bet, but my general rule of thumb is that if you can see The Peak from Tsim Sha Tsui’s waterfront, you’ll have views from The Peak).
But there are plenty of other things to do in Hong Kong, including taking the iconic Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour, learning about the history of the former colony at the Hong Kong Museum of History, shopping for bargains at Stanley Market and the Temple Street Night Market, eating dim sum and embibing in a cocktail or two in a lounge with sweeping views of the harbor or slugging it out in the nightlife district of Lan Kwai Fong.
For more details of what to see in Hong Kong in two days and how to do it, see my two-day itinerary in BinduTrips.com:
Christmas is huge in Branson. Every year the entire town becomes a winter wonderland, complete with special holiday shows in all its theaters, an annual parade celebrating the birth of Christ and lighting displays that range from drive-throughs in your own car to dazzling decorations at attractions like Silver Dollar City. Add shopping at outlet malls, craft stores and antique shops, and it’s easy to see why the end of the year is one of Branson’s most popular seasons. Frankly, I find Branson a trip any time of the year, but Christmas in Branson brings it up a notch, kind of like when Dorothy opens to doors to Oz and everything bursts into color.
Branson is great for families. When my boys were young, they loved going to Branson. What kid wouldn’t? Silver Dollar City, of course, is the big name in town, but they also couldn’t wait to drive their own go-carts back in the days before they had licenses, thrilled to the rush of water slides at White Water, enjoyed splashing into Table Rock Lake on a Ride the Ducks tour and even laughed themselves silly at the corny jokes that are often integral to Branson’s many shows. Branson for families is a no-brainer.
Having recently visited Branson–this time with my parents and 99-year-old aunt in tow–I also saw that it’s a also great vacation spot for multi-generational families.
I’ve written five itineraries on Branson for Bindutrips, including this one on Branson for families.
