Holiday planning doesn't have to be stressful. To save you the hassle, we have curated a selection of Hong Kong holiday packages. Scroll below and choose a package that best suits your travel style.
A glittering haven of sky-scrapers, lesser-known islands and delicious street food, Hong Kong is an unmissable gateway to China. Deeply rooted in tradition, you'll find that Hong Kong has imbibed the modern world seamlessly and has gradually become one of the most sought-after destinations in Southeast Asia. Offering visitors a glimpse of the country's oldest markets, revered temples and swanky rooftop bars – all Hong Kong tour packages pack in a bundle of varied experiences.
A British colony till the year 1997, today Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. Nestled along China’s southern tip of Guangdong Province, more popularly known as Canton, it shares its borders with the city of Shenzhen. Bustling with an infectious vibe, Hong Kong is home to a diverse group of people, and as many travellers have mentioned, reminds one of New York. As the sun sets in the evening, the glittering skyline takes on a different hue and the country’s busy markets and world-famous restaurants come to life. If you want to experience the beauty of Hong Kong, you must book a customised Hong Kong tour package according to your budget.
The main district of Hong Kong Central is brimming with energy and you’ll be taken in by the sweet melody of busy streets and rush of people. All Hong Kong tour packages are customised to pack in experiences suited to a traveller’s preferences so do ensure your Hong Kong tour package includes local sightseeing tours to the night market and the artsy district of SoHo. Among popular places to visit in Hong Kong, Victoria Peak and Temple Street Market are our top picks. The Star Ferry is also an attraction that shouldn’t be missed and we strongly recommend to include an afternoon cruise in your Hong Kong tour package.
Another favourite with tourists travelling to Hong Kong is the Symphony of Lights. Recognised by the Guinness World Record, the symphony is the largest permanent light and sound show in the world. The show is included in all Hong Kong tour packages and is a definite must-watch.
You’ll also realise that a big part of Hong Kong’s culture and Hong Kong tour packages is food. Considered to be one of the most exciting destinations in the world for food, the cuisine in Hong Kong is surprisingly versatile. Catering to both food lovers and fussy eaters, you’ll be astonished at the variety that the country offers. Ensure that your Hong Kong tour package takes you to all the popular local joints for a bite of the famous pineapple bun and of course a satisfying culinary fare of fresh, delicious seafood.
Chances are that your Hong Kong package will begin with a trip to the country’s tallest peak – Victoria Peak. Thronged by tourists throughout the year for the mesmerising views it offers, it’s usually quite busy and you may have to wait for the prime spot at the observation decks. A great addition to Hong Kong tour packages is Victoria Garden. Inspired by quintessential Chinese gardens, it is said to be the closest accessible spot to the summit and offers memorable views of Victoria Harbour. Victoria Peak is accessible via the Peak Tram which is often a part of Hong Kong packages.
Tian Tan Buddha or the Big Buddha is another great place to visit which is included in most Hong Kong tour packages. Standing tall as a symbol of harmony, the Big Buddha statue and the Po Lin monastery offer a memorable experience for travellers. Situated on Lantau Island, the bronze Buddha statue has gradually become a landmark for Hong Kong. The monastery is also home to a prayer hall which also must be a part of your Hong Kong package if you are keen to understand the learnings of Buddhism.
You must also set aside a day for two of Hong Kong’s most popular tourist attractions and a big part of Hong Kong tour packages – Victoria Harbour and Star Ferry. Victoria Harbour is one of the busiest ports in the world, and what stands out about the harbour is the breathtaking beauty surrounding it. If your schedule allows it, you must include a trip to Victoria Peak in the evening for a glittering view of the harbour. In fact, most Hong Kong packages include this memorable experience in their package. If you are in luck, you might even catch a live performance on Victoria Harbour – an experience that travellers can’t stop raving about.
Next on your Hong Kong holiday package should be a cruise of the world-famous Star Ferry. With captivating views of the surrounding hills, skyscrapers and the country-side – the ferry shows one a different side of Hong Kong. We strongly recommend that you take the afternoon cruise from Kowloon to Central since it’s the best way to explore Hong Kong. The cruise should be a part of your Hong Kong tour package, though you can also purchase tickets at the tourist office. We suggest opting for seats on the upper deck owing to better views and lesser fumes from the diesel vessel.
If you are travelling with little ones, you should choose a customised Hong Kong Disneyland package with an action-packed visit to Disneyland. Integrating traditional Chinese references and popular culture, Hong Kong Disneyland is a sprawling expanse of land spread over seven grounds. From Tomorrowland to Toy Story Land and Mystic Point – Disneyland in Hong Kong follows the same structure as the parks in the USA. The park is crowded throughout the year and is a big hit with locals as well. For families visiting with little ones for the first time, this needs to be part of your Hong Kong holiday package.
Another favourite with children is Ocean Park. A marine and mammal park, it is the largest theme park in Asia and is a huge attraction in Hong Kong tour packages. The park is divided into two primary areas – the Summit and the Waterfront, which are further divided into eight separate zones. If you don’t want to miss out on some of the major attractions within the park, we suggest that you hire a Hong Kong travel guide (which could also be part of your Hong Kong package) who will take you through the main attractions such as Marine World, Thrill Mountain and Whiskers Harbour.
Everything you have read and seen about Hong Kong’s crowded markets is true! It’s truly the best way to experience the country’s pulse and also interact with locals. Our favourite is the Temple Street Night Market which is fast becoming a huge part of Hong Kong holiday packages and rightly so. Covering Man Ming Lane in the north and Nanking Street in the south, the temple street comes alive after sunset and is a riot of excited chatter, vibrant colours and irresistible aromas. If you’d like to take back apparel, gadgets and other paraphernalia at astonishingly low prices, straighten your haggling hats and set out to discover this beauty. It’s also a great place for food lovers and chances are that your Hong Kong tour package will include a visit to eating joints here.
There is an exhaustive amount of information available about the busy destination of Hong Kong. From Honk Kong travel guides to Hong Kong tour packages, the internet is full of information. But, if past experiences are anything to go by, travellers are the best advisors for holiday packages, things to do and places to visit. Their personal experience can be an insight into yours and most importantly, it provides a thorough guide of what not to do. Read below for some authentic Hong Kong experiences from our Tripoto travellers before you book your Hong Kong tour package.
“There is a great mix of the West and East to be experienced in its trendsetting architecture, bright and bustling shopping markets, well-organised transport system and a culinary scene that is one of the best in the world.”
“In the chaotic and colourful whirl of Old Town Central, the past and the present collide and merge in the form of crowded tea houses, fancy art galleries, small street stalls with fresh, sizzling delicacies, glitzy rooftop bars and old temples.”
“ The harbor view is quite breathtaking, especially after dark when thousands of lights from all the skyscrapers are lit.”
A sub-tropic location typically experiences humid summers and cool winters – this holds true for Hong Kong as well. All Hong Kong tour packages tend to get expensive during winter which is the best time to visit Hong Kong and also the holiday season in China. For hiking, trekking and exploring the country – December to February are ideal owing to pleasant temperatures throughout the day.
If you'd like to save some cash, you can also travel during autumn which is when you'll have access to cheap Hong Kong tour packages. The months of September to November are ideal to experience autumn in Hong Kong.
Promising an exciting holiday, Hong Kong tour packages for couples are personalised to suit the travel style of travellers. From adventurous to romantic – you can choose among numerous Hong Kong tour packages and have a great time.
If you are looking for an adventure packed holiday, we suggest ensuring that Hong Kong Trail and the Lantau Trail are part of your Hong Kong tour package. With many opportunities for beginners and pros, trekking is a relatively unexplored activity in this bustling country. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a relaxed, laidback holiday – head to SoHo. A day here will keep you super busy and offer you everything from a taste of the local cuisine to a glimpse of the art community and of course, there is shopping to keep you busy. In fact, some Hong Kong tour packages keep aside an extra day only for shopping in SoHo's bustling markets, especially Cat Street Market.
Hong Kong as a family travel destination is a fantastic idea. With so much to do and so much to explore, Hong Kong tour packages for families are packed with unforgettable experiences. When travelling with little ones, we worry about keeping them busy but with your customised Hong Kong tour packages, you can enjoy hassle-free. With a trip to Disneyland, Victoria Harbour and Star Ferry, children will be spoilt for choice and will also have an opportunity to experience a different culture.
The home of the dim sum, Hong Kong brings together a plethora of flavours in its unique culinary culture. The food in Hong Kong is so great that we suggest trying something new every time you head out to a new place and most Hong Kong tour packages give you this option with visits to numerous popular local joints and high-end restaurants – depending on your budget.
Hong Kong tour packages are planned in a way that allows travellers to experience the country through its food. We definitely suggest trying one of the Dai Pai Dongs at the Temple Street Market for dim sums and fine roasted delicacies including duck and barbecue pork. Dai Pai Dongs are small eateries spread across the country and you'll often find yourself sharing a table with a stranger - the best way to get to know someone!
Most customised Hong Kong tour packages also include a visit to Hong Kong's swanky rooftop bars at SoHo, especially at Wyndham Street. If you want to experience a typical lazy afternoon with great food in Hong Kong, this is where you should be. Also, do remember Cantonese cuisine can be quite spicy, so if a dish on the menu says it's spicy - you better be prepared.
Travelling to Hong Kong is on the list for almost all Indian travellers. The Hong Kong government has made the documentation process easier for Indians so they can enjoy their Hong Kong tour packages peacefully. For a 14-day visa-free trip, all you need to do is apply and successfully complete the pre-arrival registration form on the Hong Kong government's immigration website.
The entire process takes 5 to 10 minutes provided all your documents are with you. You'll need an Indian passport valid for at least 6 months to complete the registration. Take a printout of the approved form and that's all you need to do before you book your Hong Kong tour package!
In case you intend to stay for over 14 days in Hong Kong, you'll need a visa and you'll need to contact the Hong Kong embassy or consulate. It is important to note that it is easier to get the visa if you have a sponsor. A sponsor can be a Hong Kong company or a resident of over 18 years.
