Hong Kong Park
The hotel is just a stone's throw away from Hong Kong Park, an oasis of green in an urban landscape. The park features an aviary, a greenhouse, the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre, fountains, lily ponds, playgrounds, a restaurant and even a marriage registry. The aviary resembles a tropical rainforest and features more than 80 species of birds.
At 1,038 feet (322 metres), Victoria Peak is Hong Kong Island's tallest hill. Majestic skyscrapers and high-rise residential blocks encircle the harbour, which boasts views of the hills of Kowloon in the distance. Victoria Peak provides a breathtaking view during the day and at night.
A favourable way to get to the peak is by taking the Peak Tram, a historical funicular railway that carves a steep 1,223-foot-high (373-metre-high) swathe up the green mountainside. The tram has been in operation since 1888.
Lantau (Ragged Head) Island offers some of Hong Kong's spectacular surprises, including pristine beaches, dense forests, stunning hiking trails and the world's largest sitting statue of the Buddha.
The Po Lin Monastery and its remarkable Buddha is Lantau's popular attraction. The statue stands 85 feet high (26 metres high), weighs 202 tonnes and cost more than HKD 70 million to build. Visitors have to walk up 268 flights of stairs to visit this magnificent bronze sculpture.
Voted as the ‘Best Urban Hiking Trail in Asia’ by Time (Asia Ed.), Dragon’s Back trail provides stunning views of Shek O, Tai Long Wan, Stanley, Tai Tam and the South China Sea.
