#HHWT Tip: Remember to add all your Klook activities to your cart before checking out to redeem your awesome discount!

Day 1

Travelling from Hong Kong International Airport

The fastest way to get to the city is by the Airport Express train? We got the Airport Express & MTR Travel Pass on Klook as we knew we would be travelling around by MTR, and we loved how we didn’t have to queue to get our Airport Express tickets at the airport. Simply exchange your passes at the customer service counter when you reach the station!

The best part of purchasing in advance on Klook? TheAirport Express tickets on Klook are the cheapest in town at HK$39 (even cheaper than purchasing from the Airport Express counter itself)! So don’t forget to purchase your tickets before your trip.

P.S. Don't lose your Airport Express pass as you'll need it for your ride back to the airport.

#HHWT Tip: Take the complimentary Airport Express shuttle bus to get to your hotel! The shuttle bus runs between Hong Kong or Kowloon stations, as well as major hotels and railway interchanges. As the bus didn’t stop at our hotel, we took it to the nearest stop and walked to our hotel?

Have your first taste of authentic, halal local food at Wai Kee

Hong Kong is home to THE best roast duck rice we've ever tasted! The crispy roast duck skin will have you going back for seconds (and maybe thirds) ?

#HHWT Tip: It might be a little confusing to navigate so we highly recommend renting a 3G WiFi device on Klook to find your way around easily! Plus, you can pick it up when you touch down at Hong Kong Airport.

Getting around by MTR

Collect your Tourist Day Pass Voucher at counter A13 in the arrivals areas of Hong Kong Airport and exchange your vouchers for the passes at any MTR customer service counter. Alternatively, if you foresee yourself taking different modes of public transport (trams, MTR, buses, ferries), get the Tourist Octopus on Klook (pre-loaded with HK$50). Not only does this pretty card make a memorable souvenir, but you can also use it on dining, shopping and entertainment too!

Take in the sights and scents of Flower Market at Prince Edward

If you love cut flowers, potted plants, or any other types of flowers just like us, you'll definitely find something to your liking here!

Have a shopping break at MOKO shopping mall

With a huge range of brands to choose from, we were absolutely spoilt for choice. Plus, this mall has direct access to the Mong Kok East MTR station, which is really convenient!

#HHWT Tip: Most shopping malls are well-connected to MTR stations so the Tourist Octopus card or MTR Tourist Day Pass will definitely come in handy!

Shop away at Sneaker Street (Fa Yuen Street)

Hop over to Fa Yuen Street, which is just a 6-minute walk away from MOKO. This is where everybody in Hong Kong goes to get their pair of kicks!

Take in the amazing view of the city from The Peak

Night or day, you’ll find the best view of the city at The Peak! And of course, you have to ride the famous Peak Tram to get there.

#HHWT Tip: Beat the queue by booking the Peak Tram Fast-Track Combo on Klook. Meet your guide escort at Central Exit K and show your reservation to collect your tickets! From there, your guide will lead you to the Peak Tram station.

It's an experience of a lifetime riding the tram, which moves upwards on a 45-degree slope! Hold on tight if you don’t manage to get a seat.

#HHWT Tip: Beat the snaking queues by purchasing the Peak Tram Fast-Track Combo on Klook. From our personal experience (we visited during the peak period), the fast-track combo saved us a lot of time as we were in the priority line for the tram!

Meet your favourite celebrities at Madame Tussauds

Strike a pose with Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee and even The Beatles (just to name a few)!

Since we had the Peak Tram Fast-Track Combo, we already had our Madame Tussaud’s tickets so we didn’t have to queue for tickets. Definitely a lifesaver as our trip was really short and we didn’t want to waste any time!

Watch the sunset and night view Sky Terrace 428
