Chi Lin Buddhist Nunnery

HK Art and Space Museums & Cultural Centre
Stroll along Salisbury Road, lined with excellent museums and public spaces, including the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, Hong Kong Museum of Art, and the Hong Kong Space Museum.
Hong Kong Museum of History
Visit the Hong Kong Museum of History, which is home to the permanent exhibit "The Hong Kong Story." As its name implies, the exhibit details Hong Kong's progression on several levels, including its natural development over 400 million years and its evolution from fishing village to a world-class city.

Mongkok Bird, Flower & Goldfish Markets
Experience the real old Hong Kong on the densely packed streets of Mong Kok and Prince Edward. Walk through the Bird Market, Flower Market and Goldfish Market where shopkeepers still use abacuses as calculators.
Tea at the Peninsula
Have afternoon tea in the lobby of the grande dame Peninsula Hotel for a Hong Kong tradition that still retains its colonial air.
Wong Tai Sin
Have your fortune told at Wong Tai Sin, a Taoist temple built in honor of a deity, whose name literally means "The Immortal Wong" as he purportedly created an elixir able to cure any illness. Rows of soothsayers line the side of the main building, and you may speak to one after performing a ritual called kau cim. This involves offering incense at the main altar and shaking a bamboo stick out of a canister, which is then exchanged for a piece of paper bearing a corresponding number and text that one of the fortune tellers can interpret for you.
