Day 1 Hong Kong Arrival
Arrival in Hong Kong. Escort you to the hotel

Dear tourists, welcome to Hong Kong! After arriving at the airport, you will see your guide waiting for you in the arrival hall. He/she will escort you to the hotel and help you check in.

Hong Kong, known by some as “the Pearl of the Orient,” prides itself the gateway to China and the harbor where the Asian and Western cultures meet. It is an important hub in East Asia with global connections to many of the world’s major cities. For nearly 150 years, Hong Kong has absorbed cultural elements from places as diverse as Vietnam and Canada. Today Hong Kong has become a popular tourist destination and Asia’s Economic Center. We hope you are ready to fully make the best of your time in Hong Kong, one of the world’s most fascinating, dynamic, and exciting cities.

Optional Activities:

You could book a half-day tour if you arrive in Hong Kong in the morning.

1. In the morning, you could visit the world’s largest hand-crafted wooden Buddhist complex, the Chi Lin Nunnery. The complex is based on the Sukhavati, a world-known Buddhist drawing in the Mogao Caves in Gansu Province. Notably, the buildings here were constructed entirely with cypress wood, without the use of any nails. In the complex, you will see various Buddha statues made of gold, stone, wood, and clay.

Then you could walk across a bridge of ancient style and visit one of the four famous gardens in Hong Kong, the Nan Lian Garden. Surrounded by high-rise buildings, the garden opposite the Chi Lin Nunnery is landscaped in the Tang Dynasty(618-907) style with clusters of bizarre rocks and more than 4,000 old and valuable trees. Among the old trees, the oldest one is over 4,000 years old. The classical Chinese layout and the old plants form a unique scenic garden in the middle of bustling Hong Kong streets.

2. In the afternoon, you could visit the most famous shrine in Hong Kong, the Wong Tai Sin Temple, a temple that enshrines one of Dao’s gods - Wong Tai Sin, also known as the Great Immortal Wong. It is said that Wong will answer whatever people ask. Therefore, it is a popular worshipping place for those wanting to have a healthy body and successful business, or for those seeking to have fortunes told. Here, you will see a huge complex of Daoist altars, pavilions, gardens, fish ponds, and numerous fortune-tellers. There is also traditional Daoist music, chanting, incense, and lanterns around the temple area.

Then, you could head to Hong Kong’s most iconic open-air marketplace, Ladies Street. The Ladies Street comprises hundreds of shops and stalls that stretch across more than one kilometer. Ladies Street, as its name speaks, is most famous for its various womenswear and other women products. You’ll also find quirky souvenirs, accessories, toys, silk pajamas, and hand-crafted chopsticks. Bargaining is the norm here, so never accept the first offer. It’s likely for you to walk home with your favorite products at 20-30 percent of the original prices if you are a good haggler.

Day 2 Hong Kong
Victoria Peak, Peak Tram, Aberdeen Fishing Village, Stanley Market

Today, your trip to Hong Kong will officially kick off. After having breakfast at the hotel, we will first take you to the number one tourist destination in the city, Victoria Peak, which was named after British Queen Victoria. Victoria Peak, which measures 554 meters, is the highest mountain on the Hong Kong Island, making it a wonderful location to overlook the unbeatable beauty of Hong Kong Island.

It’s awesome to hike the Victoria Peak, but to better appreciate the splendid view of Hong Kong, you will ascend the peak witha pleasant 8 to 10-minute ride on the Peak Tram. First opened in 1888 for the use of the British governor and the high-ranked residents living on the peak, the tram was the earliest motorized public transportation. Today it can be enjoyed by everyone and it has so far been operated for over one century. The tram, with a capacity of 120 passengers, has carried more than 4 million tourists to the peak annually, and no accidents have been reported so far. We recommend you take a nice camera with you since what you are about to see during the 1.4-kilometer route from Garden Road in Central to Victoria Peak is spectacular beauty you will remember for life.

After climbing the Victoria Peak, you will discover the quaint and charming Aberdeen Fishing Village on the southwestern shore of Hong Kong Island. Aberdeen was originally a pirate’s den two centuries ago and was later turned into a small village for boat people living on the fishery. Now, it has become a vibrant resort for both Hong Kong locals and foreign tourists after hundreds of years of development. Although Hong Kong’s economy no longer relies on the fishery, the old village floating on the sea still represents the city’s maritime history. You can have a glimpse of the village’s past and the traditional lives of the local fishermen as you sail across the front village on licensed sampan boats, which is a kind of small old-fashioned wooden junks where traditional fishermen and their families dwell.

Later, you will walk around the famous Stanley Market. It is a perfect place to buy special gifts for friends and relatives. You will find interesting arrays of small shops selling various merchandise, such as silk garments, sportswear, antiques, Chinese arts and crafts, Chinese costumes, and other souvenirs. In this market, most vendors are open to bargain. If you are a shopaholic, we recommend you browse quickly, make wise decisions, and always keep your eyes open for the best prices as you wander along the street.

After that, we will drive you to the hotel.

Day 3 Hong Kong
Lantau Island, Tung Chung Terminal, Big Buddha, Polin Monastery, Ngong Ping Village

Today, your journey in Hong Kong will continue after breakfast at the hotel.

In the morning, you will take a 30-minute ride to visit the Lantau Island in the west of Hong Kong. Lantau Island, with land of 147.16 square kilometers, is the largest of the 250 islands in Hong Kong, and is nearly twice the Hong Kong Island. Lantau Island is praised for its well-preserved ecology and picturesque landscape. It boasts beautiful natural beauty of abundant forests and large rural lands and is considered “the Lung of Hong Kong.”

To travel the Lantau Island, you will take the Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride at the Tung Chung Terminal. As the longest bi-cable ropeway in Asia, the cable car tour is famed as one of the world’s most amazing cable car experiences. It will provide you with the stunning panorama of the Lantau. The ropeway can transport 3,500 people per hour in each direction. Two levels of service are offered: standard cabins and crystal cabins. There is a glass bottom at the crystal cabin and when you look underneath your feet, you could have a bird view of the boundless sea and the rolling grassland slopes. Our default reservation will be the standard cabin. There will not be a glass bottom at the standard cabin. Please let us know if you would like to have a more thrilling experience on the crystal cabin.

Lantau Island is also the location of several major attractions. After the half-hour cable car ride, you could catch a glimpse of the supersized world-famous outdoor bronze statue, the Big Buddha. The magnificent Big Buddha, which measures 34 meters tall and weighs 250 tons, is considered the landmark of Lantau Island and is ranked as one of the five Buddhas in China. It represents Hong Kong’s stability, prosperity and peace. If you are lucky, you may also get the chance to spectate the monks singing the Buddhist chorus and to feel the serenity and harmony in Buddhist culture. It will be a mind-refreshing and unique travel memory.

After that, you will visit the prestigious Buddhist complex: the Polin Monastery. Facing the Big Buddha, the monastery was first built with stone and thatch in 1906 by three monks from Jiangsu Province in eastern China, and was initially known as “the Big Thatched Hut.” It consists of many impressive architectures, such as the Maitreya Hall and the Great Hall of Treasure. It enshrines many famous Buddhists and Bodhisattvas like Dipamkarara, Sakyamuni, and Maitreya. If you are lucky, you may encounter the “indigenous residents of the monastery”: a herd of cute cattle. It is said that the cattle live in the Ngong Ping. Most of the time, they are friendly to tourists. They would wander or run around the monastery. You could take a picture of the cattle.

After lunch, you will say hello to the Ngong Ping Village. Sitting on a 1.5 hectares site on a western highland of the Lantau Island, the village is designed and landscaped to reflect the cultural and spiritual integrity of the Ngong Ping area. You will find a wealth of cultural and religious features in this theme village: Buddhist buildings, landscaped gardens, sculptures and relics, as well as food outlets that serve both authentic Asian and Western delicacies. We suggest you not miss the Lucky Kitty shop, where you will see kitty of all sizes for various lucks from health to wealth. They are good for taking pictures.

After walking around the Ngong Ping Village, we will drive you to the hotel for a rest.

Day 4 Hong Kong
Hong Kong Disneyland

After a nice breakfast, you will take a 30-minute ride southeastward to start a fantastic and magical full-day journey in Hong Kong Disneyland. Hong Kong Disneyland ranks as Hong Kong’s largest theme park, including seven themed areas: Main Street U.S.A., Mystic Point, Toy Story Land, Adventureland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, and Grizzly Gulch.

Like a vintage American small town, the Main Street U.S.A. at Hong Kong Disneyland is architecturally identical to its counterpart in California. Strolling down the streets, you may be amazed by the dim gas lamps, antique taxicab, railroad, and the City Hall themed after 20th century America. You may also find your childhood cartoon memories while lingering in Main Street Mercantile and Emporium, or going around The Curiosity Shop and Silhouette Shop.

Fantasyland is where you could make all your dreams come true. Here, you can join Mickey Mouse at a dizzying 3-D attraction in Mickey's Philhar Magic. Wearing special glasses, you can sleep on the magic carpet with Aladdin and share a bowl of soup with Donald Duck. Don’t forget to visit The Golden Mickeys at Disney's Storybook Theater, where you could see all the Disney classics in a 25-minute musical drama. The musical mixes acrobatics and special effects and it will make your eyes stop blinking. In the theater, Tarzan swings swiftly on the rigging, just like the fan on the ceiling. When The Little Mermaid Ariel appears, the whole theater will be filled with bubbles descending from the ceiling. You will feel like you are in the sea with the Little Mermaid.

If you are a toy lover, you should not miss Toy Story Land on the western side of the park. Andy's toys will greet you with three new exciting rides as you enter their yard. In this fun backyard, you will come across Andy's friends: Buzz, Woody, Rex, Bullseye, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Jessie, Hamm, Slinky, who will appear in one way or another.

There are three new rides at Toy Story Land: Toy Soldier Parachute Drop, Slinky Dog Spin, and RC Racer. Toy Soldier Parachute Drop will lift you up to the sky and then freefall you as if you are parachuting down like Andy's Green Army Men parachuted out the window in Toy Story 3. Slinky Dog Spin, which is based on the Slinky Dog that stretches, coils, tangles and untangles, will spin and take you to chase his tail. RC Racer is a shuttle coaster that whips you up and over the U-shaped rails, as it launches you back and forth on a dizzying thrilling ride.

Unlike Disneyland in western cities,  Hong Kong Disneyland attempted to avoid cultural backlashes and to incorporate Chinese customs and traditions while designing the resort, and it offers not only special attractions but also an inimitable sense of Chinese culture.

For example, Disney intentionally positioned the main gate in a north-south direction for good fortune and built a bend in the walkway from the train station to the gate so the good qi energy(good fortune) would not flow into the nearby South China Sea. In the magical park’s signature restaurant, the Crystal Lotus, Disney has installed a virtual carp aquarium where virtual golden carps would dart away and ripples spread from guests when they walk on the see-through floor. The pond in the restaurant is themed after the five essentials in Chinese feng shui - wood, metal, earth, fire, and water. Therefore, it is believed that this pond will bring health and luck to tourists. Similar designs can be seen throughout this amusement land.

In this park, the incredibly friendly cast members speak Cantonese, English, and Mandarin. So here your Disney friends may greet and accompany you in oriental languages. It will be a unique experience.  Hong Kong Disneyland will transform during the Chinese festival seasons. For example, if you plan to visit Hong Kong Disneyland during the Spring Festival, you may see the beloved Disney characters geared up in full Chinese traditional costumes, sending away red envelop, and wishing you “kung hei fat choy”(wishing you prosperity). You may also see the dreamy castles being elaborately decorated with red lanterns and Chinese red couplets. There will also be fantastic festival shows, like holiday parades, drums and gongs, lions and dragon dances.

Lunch will not be covered for today. You will have lunch in the Park, where you may enjoy Cantonese and Asian delicacies, western pasta and salads, afternoon tea at the Corner Café, tasty pastry or sandwich from Market House Bakery, or waffles and turkey drumsticks at the snack stands…

You will be escorted to your hotel after a full-day tour of Disneyland.

Day 5 Hong KongMacau
Take a ferry to Macau, Senado Square, Ruins of St. Paul’s Church, Monte Fortress, Macau Tower, Venetian, Sands Cotai Central

This morning after your breakfast at the hotel, you will say goodbye to Hong Kong, and take a one-hour ferry ride to another coastal city in the western Pearl River delta - Macau. With a world reputation as a major resort city and gaming tourism center, Macau has begun attracting visitors with an increase of shows, entertainment equipment, and nightlife, and it is nicknamed “the Las Vegas in the Orient.” Macau boasts a delightful cultural mix of Chinese and Portuguese. During your stay in the city, you will visit many places of historical interest.

Upon your guide picking you up at the ferry port in Macau, you will embark on your first stop - a neoclassical square in Macau: the Senado Square. Built and named in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the public square located in the central Macau Peninsula was the original municipal chamber of old Macau. Around the square are buildings of great cultural significance. Most of them have a history of over 400 years. Now they are well-protected by the government. Walking around the square, you will see roads paved with a wave-patterned mosaic of colored stones. There are also firework displays, lion and dragon dances, concert performances on the square when there are festivals, like Spring Festival and Mid-Autumn Festival.

Then, you will visit the Ruins of St. Paul’s Church. The church was first constructed in 1580. It became the biggest Catholic church in East Asia in 1673 when it was completed. According to historical materials, this 16th-century cathedral was built with spectacular white stones and it had a magnificent vaulted roof and three intricately decorated halls. Unfortunately, this glorious church had caught fires twice in 1595 and 1601 during its construction. In 1835, the church was violently hit by a typhoon and caught a great fire again. The greatest church was therefore burnt down, leaving only the 27-meter-tall five-tiered facade and the grand stone stairs. Today, the Ruins of St. Paul’s Church, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage in 2005, is considered one of Macau’s most iconic landmarks.

Later, you will move to the Monte Fortress, which stands adjacent to the Ruins St. Paul’s Church. The quadrilateral granite fortress about 100 meters in circumference was originally built in 1616 for the St. Paul's Church to defend the church from pirates’ invasions. It later became a military fort of Macau, and today it is a famous attraction as well as a meteorological observatory. Standing on the platform and set eyes afar, you could have an excellent view over the whole of Macau.

After lunch, you will head north to visit the Macau Tower. The construction of the tower began in 1997 and was finished four years later in 2001. With an altitude of 338 meters, the landmark skyscraper was designed by Gordon Moller, a renowned architect of New Zealand. Macau Tower was the eighth highest tower in Asia, and the tenth in the world by the year of its completion. Looking down from the observation deck, you can see a panoramic view of the Pearl River Delta, Macau Peninsula and Taipa, Coloane Islands, and even some islands of Hong Kong and Zhuhai on sunny days.

After that, you will visit the amazing Venetian. Covering about 980,000 square meters, it is the largest hotel with only one building in Asia and the second largest in the world. It integrates art performances, entertainment, shopping, exhibition, accommodation, and large-scale gaming. Here, you could have your best shopping experience with famous brands and the duty-free advantages while appreciating the Venetian-style buildings.

Today’s last stop will be the most recommended Sands Cotai Central. In this mega-resort, you will find a good variety of beautiful shops, resorts, spas, theaters, nice restaurants, grand casinos, etc. Compared to Sands casinos in the US, this one is bigger and with more options to part with your money.

After the visit at Sands Cotai Central, you will check in your hotel in Macau.

Senado Square

Day 6 Macau
Visit Macau as you want

Today, we will not arrange any group activities for you and you could have closer touch on Macau as you want.

During the one-day free trip, you could satisfy your western appetite with some local specialties, such as steamed buns with pork, seafood porridge, etc.; you could take your chance in oriental gambling games. Or you could just walk around the souvenir shops and select presents for yourself and your families or friends who could not visit Macau in person, and our recommendations are almond pancakes, dried meat, etc.

Day 7 MacauZhuhai
Take the bus to Zhuhai, New Yuan Ming Palace, Fisher Girl Statue, Lovers’ Road

Today, your guide in Macau will escort you to Hengqin Port after you have breakfast at the hotel and you will take the cross-border bus to Zhuhai in Mainland China. Your guide in Zhuhai will welcome you at the arrival port in Zhuhai.

Facing Hong Kong and Shenzhen to the east and sharing maritime borders with Macau in the southeast, Zhuhai is a coastal city with a number of islands. As an immigrant city, Zhuhai has not only a flourishing economy but also enchanting natural scenery and abundant historical attractions. It is one of China’s original Economic Special Zone, and it is also the city with the biggest ocean area, the most islands, and the longest coastline in the Pearl River delta. Being named one of the most livable cities in China, Zhuhai has a humid subtropical climate moderated by the South China Sea. Snowfall rarely occurs and a frost has never been recorded in the city.

After having local delicacies for lunch, you will go to the south of Zhuhai to visit the New Yuan Ming Palace. The New Yuan Ming Palace is a grand artificial garden of 1.39 square kilometers, which is three times the Vatican. The resort is based on the reputed imperial Old Summer Palace in Beijing, which is known to have been destroyed by a great fire of three days by foreign troops during the Second Opium War and to have never been rebuilt to its original appearance. It is a vivid imitation garden comprising eighteen of the forty sights of the Old Summer Palaces. There are delicate Chinese palaces, and pavilions in this garden. You will have the chance to appreciate the imperial architecture of the Qing Dynasty (1636-1912) and the classical garden layout of south China.

Later, you will sightsee the Fisher Girl Statue standing elegantly on a boulder in Xianglu Bay. The granite statue of 8.7 meters tall is not only a landmark of the city but also the first statute erected by the seaside in China. There is a scenic view of the Pearl River Delta with silt-rich water, rocks, and a beach around the statue. The fisher girl has its fishnet draping down to the waist and holds a pearl high in the air with both hands up to the sky, symbolizing the beautiful and vigorous Zhuhai welcoming tourists from all over the world.

According to local legend, the fisher girl was the seventh daughter of the celestial Dragon King. She was enamored by the beauty of the Zhuhai region during her visit to the Pearl River, so she disguised herself as a fisher girl named Pearl and lived there, weaving baskets, healing locals with her magic powers. She later fell in love with a fellow fisherman named Haipeng, yet their romance was interrupted by a vicious dragon who proposed to the fisher girl but was refused. The vicious dragon was furious for the fisher girl choosing Haipeng not him, so he killed her. Heartbroken and guilt-ridden, Haipeng set out to find a cure to bring the fisher girl back to life. Eventually, he was told by a local elder that he would need to cultivate a special herb with his blood. Haipeng, who eventually harvested enough herbs to save the fisher girl after years of toiling, brought her back. The young couple later married and the fisher girl found a bright pearl, which she gifted to the elder in gratitude on the day of the wedding. After her death, people built this statue to memory their love.

Then, you will enjoy a romantic seaside walk on Lovers’ Road, a peaceful promenade that stretches along Zhuhai’s coastline. Walking the path along the waterfront with palm trees, you will see the excellent view of the Macau skyline as well as the great Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge that goes all the way to Hong Kong. At night, the road will be nicely lit and have a wonderful vibe. The Lovers’ Road has been tagged as “the name card of Zhuhai,” making Zhuhai one of the most romantic cities. 

After a memorable walk on Lovers’ Road, you will be escorted to your hotel.

The ancient street, with elegant architecture in distinctly Chinese style and rich commercial background, has now become a vital center for tourist attractions, shops, entertainment, and cultural exhibits.

After having lunch, you will climb up the snake-like Shanghai Tower that spirals upward in Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone of Pudong District.
