Ocean Park spans 870,000 square meters and has two distinct areas, the Summit (Headland) and the Waterfront (Lowland) connected by the 1.5 km long cable car ride across a mountain separating them. The theme park has 19 rides, with two roller coasters, 11 animal exhibits, the most famous being the Giant panda habitat.

In the world of commerce which prizes optimum growth and profit, the Aberdeen area, Jumbo Floating Restaurant and Ocean Park ought to be obsolete, as seen in the dwindling number of visitors and running deficits over the years. However, thanks to the heroic effort of a group of individuals, all these places are revived and thriving.

The Peak is one of the most visited attractions in Hong Kong. Standing at 552 meters, the Victoria Peak is located on the western part of Hong Kong Island. During the 19th century many affluent Europeans have made their home here, lured by the more temperate weather.

Stanley is located on the southernmost tip of Hong Kong Island which makes up Island South. There are buses operating out of Exchange Square in Central. If you are in Causeway Bay, the minibus terminus is located on the street opposite Times Square. Express buses and minivans take the most direct route to Stanley by way of the Aberdeen Tunnel.

Causeway Bay has been synonymous with Japanese department stores for many years. Although stores such as Mitsukoshi and Daimaru have retreated from the territory in the past decade, they are etched in the collective memory of many locals, becoming landmarks.

Hong Kong has a rather muddled identity, referred to as a colony, a region, a territory and always seen with a comma, Hong Kong, the Crown colony and Hong Kong, China after the handover. Strangely enough, Central is clearly recognizable as the capital of Hong Kong.

When you think of Hong Kong, shopping and dining are foremost on peoples minds. Little does it occur that there is an under noticed but very lively art scene in the territory. You may automatically relate the upper streets in Central as the LKF clubbing hot spot but the area is also an artistic hubbub.

Tai Hang is adjacent to Causeway Bay on Hong Kong Island, an L-shaped area bordered by Tung Lo Wan Road and Wun Sha Street. Tai Hang is a miniature of what you will find in many places in Hong Kong, a mix of the old and new, contrasting but coexisting perfectly together.

This is a budget day tour of Wanchai. As opposed to the newer northern part, it may not be as glamorous. However old Wanchai has its own charm with the rich cultural history and lest we forget, the great bargain shopping.

Wanchai is a live specimen of an ever evolving city. Similar to other modern cities, conservation and development forever hang in a delicate balance. Ever since heralding in the heritage preservation programs in older Wanchai, demolishing old buildings is no longer an option, which leaves land reclamation as the only expansion solution.
