  • Hong Kong's camaraderie and commotion enlightens vacationers

    2011-04-25

    There are not many other cities that boast the massive population and friendly chaos that Hong Kong has to offer. There's a grandeur that lies within its high rises and a mystery among its narrow streets that have some tourists swept away in the excitement.

    Arguably, one of the more stunning places of worship in the city is the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple. Here, the walls and floors are covered in color with flowers, intricate pillars and detailed hangings, which admirers come to visit year-round with curiosity or reverence. For a price, fortunetellers will tell a guest their "chim", or future.

    Hong Kong shows its true colors after the sun sets at the Temple Street Night Market, reports Lonely Planet. What used to be "Men's Street" due to the exclusive venders only carrying men's clothing and items now has no gender prerequisites for its patrons. Tourists can discover traditional street food, including hand-cut noodles in broth, alongside free Cantonese opera performances on some nights.

    A classic attraction is to watch or ride the Star Ferry around Hong Kong's harbor, says World Travel Guide. Since the 1920's, these perky boats have provided visitors with some of the best views of the city, day or night.
