Things to see in Hong Kong are pretty cool. This is a place that really has to be seen to be believed. It’s fast and furious, frenetic and fun and all with a capital F. If you get to stand still long enough there are some great things to see in Hong Kong. HK is a magnificent mix of old style Chinese, Colonial British, capitalist 21st century Chinese and every ethnic group imaginable. This really is one place where the cliché of old meets new is applicable in every sense. Sights in Hong Kong are skyscrapers rubbing shoulders with shanty shacks, 5* hotels vying with junky houseboats, markets with cheap knocks offs competing with the most chic and expensive designer goods and street foods calling for attention against delectable fine dining. Here are my 7 Cool Things to See in Hong Kong:

1. The Harbor on an Aqua Luna Cruise

The Bay lit up at night is one of the best sights in Hong Kong but the pleasure is heightened when seen from a top-deck lounge bed on a wooden junk run by Aqua Luna.

Throw in some freshly made cocktails and the old boat becomes romantic and cool.

The night time cruise lasts 45 minutes and departs from Central.

You need to book ahead.

2. Street Scene at Jardine’s Bazaar

At first sight, Jardine’s Bazaar looks like a grungy restaurant strip – it is!2

But, it’s also one of the hippest places in the city and one of the great people-watching sights in Hong Kong.

Its plethora of wanton and noodle shops is popular with the cool set because it’s all very cheap.

Fancy tucking into a massive mixed-grill for about $5?

You can at the Loon Wai diner.

3. Beautiful People at South Bay Beach Club

Of all the things to see in Hong Kong, you probably wouldn’t imagine a scene more reminiscent of a European Riviera beach.

At the South Bay Beach Club on Repulse Bay, well toned bodies, skimpy bikinis and wraparound shades are the order of the day.

Not the place for topping up the tan if you can’t afford to quaff champers all day.
