DETAILED DESCRIPTION

This classic Hong Kong and Macao journey will show you the best of these bustling cities, both the iconic and the lesser-known and everything in between: from high-end shopping to local wet markets, from some of the most expensive neighborhoods to traditional fishing villages, and from glittering casinos to age-old temples.

Day-to-Day

DAY 1 Hong Kong Island

Arrive in one of Asia's most notable and exciting business capitals, Hong Kong, and check in to your luxury hotel. Once settled in, embark on a half-day historical walking tour of the city around Central, the frenetic business and retail heart crammed with skyscrapers, art galleries, trendy restaurants, and boutiques. Take a ride on the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world, the Mid-Levels escalator. Jump on the Peak Tram, the city's historic funicular, and make your way to Victoria Peak for stunning views of Hong Kong’s famed cityscape. If you wish, stretch your legs with a stroll along Peak Circle Walk which rewards hikers with views of the harbor. If timed right, you can watch the glow of the afternoon light dim into the twilight that gives way to the night and shimmering city lights.

DAY 2 Hong Kong Island

Start your morning early with a rewarding hike along Dragon's Back trail which affords a panoramic views of iconic cityscape on one side and miles of sweeping ocean on the other. Then, take in lesser visited sights of Hong Kong island away from the skyscrapers: from Repulse Bay, one of the most expensive residential areas in the world, to the humble fishing village of Aberdeen. Get on a private sampan and cruise in the harbor for a closer look at where people still live and work on boats. For a unique experience, opt for a seafood meal on a floating restaurant. Don't miss Stanley market, a popular local favorite which offers a relaxed outdoor shopping and dining scene along a promenade.

DAY 3 Hong Kong Island

Explore yet another side of Hong Kong: Kowloon, across Victoria Harbor. Take the classic Star Ferry across the harbor and arrive at Tsim Sha Tsui (TST). The immediate waterfront's promenade is also known as Avenue of Stars which honors celebrities of the Hong Kong film industry. Then, head over to Mongkok district, a bustling scene of street food, buildings studded with neon signboards, and markets galore. Take your pick from bargain markets, flower market, even bird and goldfish markets. A highlight today is a hands-on lesson on making dim sum, a feast of bite-sized dishes served with tea that is a quintessential Hong Kong experience. If you wish, extend your time in Kowloon into the night when the neon signs light up the streets and night markets come to life.

DAY 4 Macao Peninsula

Today travel onward to neighboring Macao, just a quick hydrofoil ride across the Pearl River Delta. Similar to Hong Kong, Macao is a tightly-packed metropolis with glittering skyscrapers yet distinctly offers Portuguese colonial heritage, unique fusion cuisine, and the glitziest casino strip in all of Asia. Explore the UNESCO-designated highlights such as St. Paul's Cathedral, Senado Square, and Monte Fort before seeing Old Macao in the historic villages of Taipa and Coloane. Finally, spend an exciting last night on the town starting with VIP seats at the award-winning House of Dancing Water show followed by a tour of the Cotai Strip's Vegas-style mega hotels and casinos.

DAY 5 Departure

Spend the morning as you wish, whether relaxing at your luxury hotel or exploring on your own. We recommend taking the last opportunity to enjoy some of Macao's favorite snacks such as the porkchop bun and a Portuguese egg tart. When you're ready, a private car will take you to the airport for your flight onward.
