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.
