About Hong Kong

Hong Kong may boast some 236 islands but most of the five million inhabitants of this former British Crown Colony are concentrated on just one, Hong Kong Island, and one city, Kowloon, on the facing peninsula. It is known as one of the most crowded and vibrant places in the world, making Hong King cruises a must see.

Be energised just walking down its teeming streets where you can buy anything from a handmade suit, fancy jewellery and the latest duty-free electronic gizmos to Asian antiques.

Also part of our cruises to Hong Kong is a journey between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island with Star Ferry, which gives you the experience of the world’s busiest crossings.

For one of the steepest journeys, try the tram which travels to the top of Victoria Peak, 1,300ft above the harbour. And for the ultimate taste sensation on your Hong Kong cruise, head for Aberdeens floating restaurants featuring every kind of Asian cuisine.

A Local Hong Kong Experience

Activity mediumMeal included

Duration: 6 hours

Experience Local life in Hong Kong, on this Small Group Tour.

The Chi Lin Nunnery is a large temple complex of elegant wooden architecture, treasured Buddhist relics and soul-soothing lotus ponds. The complex was established in 1934 and renovated in the Tang dynasty style in 1990. During your visit, you’ll see a series of temple halls, some of which contain gold, clay and wooden statues. Next door to the Chi Lin Nunnery is the Nan Lian Garden, nestled amongst a myriad of high-rise apartments. Its scenic garden is meticulously landscaped and provides a moment of tranquillity away from the hectic pace of Hong Kong. A typical wet market in Hong Kong is where the locals go on a daily basis to buy the freshest fruits, vegetables and live poultry or fish. This vivid and colourful experience will offer you a glimpse into the daily life of a person living in Hong Kong, that refuses to be superseded by modern means. Dim sum was invented for the pleasure of the Emperor and is a popular meal for the locals. Imagine yourself as an Emperor as you indulge in a delicious Dim sum lunch served at a local Chinese restaurant. Half of the population of Hong Kong resides in mass public housing provided by the government for lower-income residents. A home visit to a Public House in the city will provide you with a unique insight into local home life.

The quaint and charming Aberdeen Fishing Village is not far from the hustle and bustle of the heart of Hong Kong, and is the first place the British set foot upon when they arrived.

Guilin,Wall & Beijing Overland -Double

Activity highMeal includedRefreshments includedShopping

Duration: 4 nights

A wonderful opportunity to see the enchanting river region of Guilin, fascinating city of Beijing and The Great Wall of China.

DAY 1 – HONG KONG / GUILIN A drive to Victoria Peak will allow you to enjoy one of most extraordinary and legendary vista of any modern city. Once an upper-class residential area from colonial times, the Peak is still among Hong Kong's most exclusive areas with an awe-inspiring view of the whole city. Take in the sights as you make your way to Hong Kong Airport where you’ll have a Chinese dim sum lunch before taking your flight to Guilin. Guilin translates as ‘Sweet Osmanthus’, owing to the many fragrant trees found within the city. You’ll check into the Sheraton Hotel, where your evening meal will be served. DAY 2 – LI RIVER After breakfast, take a scenic 52 mile cruise along the serene Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo. It is said that to sail along the Li River is like sailing through a traditional Chinese painting. Enjoy incredible panoramas of picturesque mountains dotted with peaceful rice paddies with water buffalo meandering along the river banks. See the fishermen gliding along on their narrow bamboo rafts, many of them still using specially trained cormorant birds to capture fish on their behalf. During your Li River cruise, you’ll be offered a light box lunch. Disembark in the little town of Yangshuo, which has a history spanning 1,000 years. Wandering along the streets in Yangshuo, you may browse for souvenirs. Returning to the hotel, you’ll have the option to join a guided walk to the nearby lake. In the evening, enjoy a Chinese set dinner at a local restaurant. DAY 3 – GUILIN / BEIJING Following breakfast, check out and depart for a morning tour of the ancient town of Daxu, founded during the early Northern Song Dynasty (960-1126). Daxu has wonderfully preserved ancient buildings with worn bluestone streets. Your tour then takes you onto the Reed Flute Cave, whose name was derived from the reeds used for making flutes and pipes that grow at its entrance. The cave is regarded as the largest and most impressive cave in Guilin and features a landscape of stalactites, stalagmites and fantastic stone shapes in unusual colours. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant before travelling to the airport where you will take a flight to Beijing. On arrival, you’ll transfer to the Sheraton Beijing Dongcheng Hotel where a buffet dinner will be served. DAY 4 – BEIJING After breakfast, you’ll visit the largest city centre square in the world, Tiananmen Square, which covers 34 acres. This historic site is surrounded by the Great Hall of the People, Mao Zedong Memorial Hall and the National Museum. Your tour also includes a visit to the Forbidden City, also known as the Palace Museum; it was once the Imperial Palace from the Ming Dynasty through to the Qing Dynasty. Although the palatial complex is the largest in the world, covering more than 210 acres, the intricate detail within the pavilions and courtyards is incredible. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before you continue to visit the Temple of Heaven, the largest group of temple buildings in China, and the largest heaven-worshipping architecture in the world. The Temple of Heaven was built in 1420 in the Ming Dynasty. During the Ming and Qing Dynasties, it was used by the Emperors to worship to the God of Heaven to pray for a good harvest. The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests is an impressive structure, comprised solely of wood. See the intricate joinery and dovetailing used to create the wonderful architectural details without the use of steel, cement or a single nail. In the evening you’ll have a traditional Peking Duck dinner at a selected restaurant. DAY 5 – GREAT WALL OF CHINA You’ll have breakfast and check out of your hotel before setting off to visit one of mankind’s mightiest creations, the Great Wall of China. Built in 3rd century BC to protect China’s northern border from marauding nomads and barbarians, the wall stretches over 4,500 miles east to west. Today, it remains a poignant reminder of the painstaking endeavours of nearly one million workers. Your tour will include a visit to the Badaling section of the Wall.
