Four tips for sightseeing in Hong Kong 四項遊香港小提示

We share four tips for sightseeing in Hong Kong with you.

(1) 'HILLY' RELIEF IN CENTRAL
Apart from the tall buildings, you can find lots of heritage buildings and art galleries in Central. It is good to have a walk in Central. BUT PLEASE BEWARE OF THE HILLY RELIEF THERE. The old Central was built on the hillside. It takes you lots of energy to walk up and down the steep street and steps.

(2) 'NO' SERVICE IN LOCAL RESTAURANTS (CHA CHAN TENG)

After the walk in Central, you may want to have the lunch in the local restaurants, i.e. Cha chan teng). PLEASE BEWARE OF THE 'NO' SERVICE THERE. Waiters 'force' you to  share the table with the unknown others. Waiters talk to you loudly when they take your orders. Waiters 'throw' the dishes to you.  Actually they are not impolite. They just show you Hong Kong commoners' life style.

(3) CHOOSE YOUR RIGHT DECK BEFORE TAKING STAR FERRY

After having lunch in Central, you can take the famous two-story Star Ferry. PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR RIGHT DECK BEFORE BUYING THE TOKEN because you cannot go upstairs or downstairs at will when you are taking the ferry. You can take picture easily on the lower deck. But the natural AC, i.e. the wind, may make you feel cold in winter. You can enjoy the artificial AC on the upper deck in summer. So its ticket price is higher ($2.5 HKD on weekdays or 3.4 on holidays, which are nothing) (Star Ferry Wan Chai <> Tsim Sha Tsui Route just has the upper deck).

(4) OVERCROWDING PROBLEM ON THE OUTLYING ISLANDS

You may want to go to Hong Kong's outlying islands to experience the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Ride on holidays or the Bun Festival in May. PLEASE BEWARE OF THE OVERCROWDING PROBLEM. Most people take the Cable Car to see the Big Buddha due to traffic control and bad transportation. It can be extremely crowded on the sunny holidays. Apart from the travelers, lots of locals want to know more about the folk culture. So during the Bun Festival, about 60,000 people go to the small Cheung Chau (2.46 km², with 22,000 population)! Hot and wet weather plus the crowd near the ferry pier may make you feel dizzy!

我們在此和大家分享四個遊香港的小提示。

(1)注意中環的「斜路」
除了高樓大廈,中環有古蹟和藝術區,值得去走走,但請注意中環的「斜路」,老中環是建築在山坡上的,你要付出一定的努力,才可征服那兒的「長命斜路」和樓梯。

(2)注意茶餐廳的「特別服務態度」

行過中區大街小巷,可到茶餐廳吃道地美食,但請注意茶餐廳的「特別服務態度」,有人更會說那是「零服務」。侍應會迫你和陌生人坐在同一張小圓桌,他們會大聲地問你「吃什麼」,他們會把食物「拋擲」給你。侍應們不是沒禮貌,他們只是在展現普通香港老百姓的生活態度。

(3)乘天星小輪前選定坐上層或下層

吃過飯,可以在中環坐著名的天星小輪過海。但乘船前請選定坐上層或下層。你在船上是不可自由走到上或下層的。在下層,你會較容易拍照,但天然空調 – 海風 – 或在冬天時令在沒有窗戶的下層的你感到嚴寒。在上層你可以享受空調,故票價亦較高(平日2.5港幣,假日3.4港幣,其實還是很便宜的)(灣仔尖沙咀天星小輪就只得上層)。

(4)注意離島的人潮

你或許想到離島,在假日乘昂坪360纜車看看大嶼山大佛和在五月時參與長洲太平清醮。但注意離島的人潮。因交通不便,所以特別是在天晴假日,許多人乘搭昂坪吊車,如你稍遲出門,到達車站後,隨時要苦候兩小時。除了遊客,許多本地人都想認識更多本地文化,所以長洲(2.46平方公里,有22,000居民,只得渡輪接駁市區)有飄色和搶包山的日子,會有多達60,000人乘船到島上參觀,碼頭肯定迫得水洩不通。
