Anything unusual to do in Hong Kong?

On January 31, 2013, in Feng Shui Jade, by admin

I’m going to Hong Kong in June, and I wanna do something that’s a bit different to the usual tourist attractions…any ideas? I love eating out, nightlife, music…

There are a number of interesting beginners classes offered FREE in HK, like Tai ji quan, Feng Shui, pearl and jade appreciation, etc. See the link below.

Also, while HK is a pretty busy and cosmopolitan city, there are nearby some quiet and beautiful islands. Lantau, larger than Hong Kong island but with a population of only around 26,000, has country trails, deserted beaches. The world’s largest outdoor, seated, bronze Buddha is there too, next to the Po Lin monastery and the Tai O village populated by descendants of HK’s first settlers, the Tanka people. From the Central Pier 5 ferry, you can also get to Cheung Chau Island, and from Central Pier 4, you also access Lamma Island.

    Eat something that isn’t still alive? Hey, you asked for something UNUSUAL in Hong Kong, didn’t you?

    Addendum for Lanna:
    You saw a thing about worms and cow balls and thought of me… well, gee, I’m so touched by that, thanks…. 😉

    All I can think of is eat something you’ll never get a chance to eat again. (yuck!)

    Oliver T: I saw a show about foods in the orient on the Food Network the other day and thought of you. They were eating live worms, cow balls, leaves, and something else that was gross that I forgot. Anyway, both of you be cautious when you go.

    Ok in addition to the above consider a boat trip to have a look at the pink dolphins off Lantau (link below). For music and nightlife check out the Fringe Club on Hong Kong Island, they have a mix of venues in one building. For eating out it depends on your ‘preferences’, there’s a choice of just about ‘everything’ in Hong Kong. A few unusual ones would be:
    The Stoep (African), on the beach on Lantau
    Dali Lamma on Lamma Island
    Black Sheep at Shek O on Hong Kong island
    Anything in Sai Kung in the New Territories
    Anything on Cheung Chau island

    If you are in Hong Kong, take a day to visit Macau, it’s less than an hour by ferry, and it’s a another ‘whole world’ of sights and tastes. Ferries run ‘around the clock’ in both directions.
