Hong Kong is a diverse city that can take more than 4 days to explore. From the bustling city center, colonial history to country parks and stunning mountain vista, even as a local I often still find new things to do. I would recommend spending a week here if possible, but if 4 days is all the time you have, here is what to do in Hong Kong in 4 days:
Q & A
What would you have changed?
As a local - I'd say stay longer and squeeze in more hikes!
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Never underestimate the queues in Hong Kong and avoid the peak lunch and dinner hours (12:30 - 1:30 pm and 7:30 - 9pm)
How was the food?
Save your stomach some space for street food in Argyle Center!
What tips would you give a friend?
Hong Kong is a cash based city, so make sure you hit the ATM before you start the day.
Hong Kong tends to be quite hot but the air conditioning inside malls and restaurants are strong. So bring a cardigan or a wrap when you are out.
Get an Octopus Card which can be used for all forms of transport in Hong Kong, and you can also use it to buy food and things.
Hiking in Hong Kong is always a pleasant surprise and should not be missed!
