- The Peak
If there is only one thing you can do in Hong Kong, go to The Peak. If you have many things to do here, still go to The Peak. The highest point on Hong Kong Island, this has been the city’s most exclusive neighbourhood since colonial times — back then it was the cooler air that attracted the rich and famous; in the post air-conditioning era, the views of one of the world’s most spectacular cityscapes keep them coming. Besides, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong is also at the peak. You could meet all your favourite celebrities there. With over 100 incredibly lifelike wax figures and 11 interactive zones, you can rub shoulders with Lee Jong-suk and immerse in K-pop culture at K-wave Zone, practise kung fu with Bruce Lee at Kung Fu Zone, take selfies with some of the world’s most respected historical and political leaders, glam it up with Taylor Swift on stage, and enjoy the patterned world of Yayoi Kusama!
- A Symphony of Lights
If you thought Victoria Harbour was a dazzling cityscape on its own, hang around for A Symphony of Lights. The multimedia show has set the harbour ablaze every night since 2004, and is recognised as one of the world’s most spectacular light shows. It has become the signature icon for Hong Kong, showcasing the vibrancy and glamorous night vista of the city.
Iconic buildings on both sides of the harbour unite to form a harmonious canvas for a sensational multimedia extravaganza, with a myriad of searchlights, lasers, LED screens and lighting working in symphony to put together a nightly spectacle that transforms the Hong Kong skyline into an outdoor audiovisual feast.
You can listen to the show's music at the harbourfront areas near Hong Kong Cultural Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui and near Golden Bauhinia Square in Wan Chai every night at 8pm.
- Avenue of Stars
Avenue of the Stars’ glamorous movie theme is complemented perfectly by the splendour of Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong skyline, of which the promenade also offers spectacular views.
- Ngong Ping 360
As you step out of the cable car, you will be greeted by the culturally themed 1.5-hectare Ngong Ping Village, where a wide array of shops and eateries offer a delightful shopping and dining experience. And don’t miss the exciting Motion 360, VR 360, and Walking with Buddha multimedia presentations!
The renowned Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, Ngong Ping Piazza and Wisdom Path are only a five-minute walk from Ngong Ping Village.
Conclude your Lantau Island day out with a breathtaking sunset view as you take the cable car back to Tung Chung.
- Leisure and Cultural Services Department Museums
Under the management of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, museums acquire, conserve, research on, exhibit and communicate for the purposes of study, education and enjoyment, material evidence of people and their environment. Museum collections form a composite picture of our cultural, historical and natural heritage, and the preservation of such collections represents a long-term commitment to existing and future generations.
Of the seven major museums, the Hong Kong Museum of Art plays an important role in preserving the cultural heritage of China and promoting art with a local focus. The Hong Kong Science Museum, with its predominantly interactive exhibits, illustrates various scientific principles and the ways technology is used to improve the quality of life. The Hong Kong Space Museum serves to popularize astronomy and space science. The Hong Kong Heritage Museum features a variety of specially designed exhibition possibilities to cover different aspects of history, the arts and culture. The Hong Kong Museum of History collects, conserves, processes, studies and displays cultural objects which are closely related to the archaeology, history, ethnography and natural history of Hong Kong and the South China area. The Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence features Hong Kong's coastal defence history in the past 600 years. The Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum gives a comprehensive overview of the life and career of Dr Sun, and Hong Kong's vital role in the reform movements and revolutionary activities in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
During the AIESEP 2020, we will arrange a visit to the heritage museum
