There's the Kowloon peninsula teething with shops, temples, markets and restaurants; the New Territories which offers a contrast of scenic beauty and man-made achievements, it's unique gardens and parks bursting with birds, wildlife and plants.

Victoria Peak
High above Hong Kong Island on the 'back of the Dragon', Victoria Peak is Hong Kong's premier visitor attraction, providing magnificent harbour and city views. Arriving late afternoon enables you to experience the dazzling panorama of Hong Kong Island, the harbour, Kowloon and the hills beyond. Later, you can thrill to the neon-dotted skyline by night. What's more, The Peak offers visitors a multitude of fantastic entertainment, dining and shopping options.

Peak Tram
The best way to get to the top is via the Peak Tram a funicular railway that carves a steep 373-metre swathe up the lush mountainside. The tram has been in operation since 1888, and once competed with sedan chairs as the most popular way up. Try to get seats at the front of the tram on the right-hand side for the journey skyward. The only way to describe the views from this vantage point is "simply awesome".

Ocean Park
Ocean Park is one of Southeast Asia's largest oceanariums and theme parks, and tops the itinerary of many visitors to Hong Kong - especially those with children. You'll need a whole day to see everything. There are funfair rides and dolphin shows, scenic cable cars and sea lions, magnificent shopping, great dining and so much more. The Lowland Gardens are a must-see, featuring the park's most adored attractions - the giant pandas An An and Jia Jia. The animals live happily in a 2,000-square-metre habitat that closely resembles the natural living conditions of giant pandas in the wild. The project provides an excellent opportunity for the public to learn more about this endangered species, the survival problems they face and how they can be saved from extinction. The undersea world is explored at Marine Land. Here visitors journey under water at the Atoll Reef to discover more than 250 kinds and 2,000 fish, including an 80-year-old, 1.8-metre-long giant grouper can be seen. The Atoll Reef also boasts the largest number of Giant Napoleon fish to be found in any aquarium in the world. The young and the young at heart can't wait to jump on Ocean Park's Headland Rides. The Dragon is Hong Kong's largest roller-coaster that flips riders at super high speeds through loops, twists and turns for the ride of a lifetime. The Flying Swing lifts the daring as high as seven metres in a gyrating wave-like motion. Adventure Land is another place for high-octane thrills. You can ride down the Raging River in a boat, navigating through swirling and narrow ravines.

And don't miss out on Mine Train, Ocean Park's newest phenomenal ride with 678 metres of twisting, climbing and dipping exhilaration - definitely not for the faint of heart. It's non-stop excitement as Whiskers, Ocean Park's mascot offers up the latest thrill-a-minute sensation with "Whiskers Wild Ride" an exciting simulated tour by land, sea and air. You won't believe it until you see it and experience the thrill yourself!

Repulse Bay
Primarily a well-to-do residential area, sun-drenched Repulse Bay has a relaxed resort-like atmosphere. The wide, wave-lapped beach is popular with locals and visitors alike and great for sandy strolls - early morning with the waking of another day, when the sun is up and the sunbathers are out in force, or at sunset when all is at peace. As well as sun, sea and sand, there are plenty of diversions nearby. The ornate Life Guard Club is built in a traditional Chinese style, its ceiling decorated with magnificent swirling dragons. The picturesque gardens that lead down to the beach are dominated by towering twin statues of Kwun Yum and Tin Hau, both protectors of fishermen.

The colonial-style, The Repulse Bay, houses designer shops and award-winning restaurants and resembles the luxury hotel that originally occupied the site. This is the ideal place for a romantic dinner under the stars. For something more down-to-earth, several open-air restaurants nearby specialise in the joys of wholesome barbecued food, including the freshest prawns, squid, fish and other seafood. All are cheery hives of activity every night of every week.
