(Optional: One way Peak Tram ride, USD 4 per person at your own expense)
Most people today ride up on the famous Peak Tram, built in 1888, an impossibly steep but wonderful way to reach the Peak Tower, a small complex of shops, cafes and other minor attractions at the tram's upper terminal. Sit on the right of the tram for the best views, and be certain to wait for a clear day to make the trip. Do not leave the Tower complex - which is a little disorientating - without riding the escalators to the outdoor observation deck: the views are breathtaking.
One of Hong Kong most popular and beautiful beaches. Overlooking Repulse Bay is the former Repulse Bay Hotel, which has long been a landmark of the southern side of the island. Huge statues of Tin Haul, Goddess of the Sea and Klum Yum, Goddess of Mercy now overlook the beach.
Aberdeen Fishing Village
(Optional: Sampan Ride, US 8 per person at your own expense)
Traditional and often impoverished ways of life still prevail, however, none more striking than the harbor’s hundreds of junks and sampans, old-fashioned boats which provide floating homes for thousands of people. Taking a ride on one of the boats is a popular activity - people trying to sell you a trip - but try to stick with licensed operators will inevitably approach you. Alternatively take a shuttle boat to one of the harbor’s famous’ floating restaurants', vast and gaudily decorated affairs aimed unashamedly at tourists, but fun nevertheless.
Gem Factory Outlet
The outlet located in Aberdeen mainly reserved for foreigners. There are four floors of showrooms, and also have a workshop providing free polishing and repairing services to customers. Almost all jewellery products set with precious and semi-precious stones are available and make-to0order service is also provided. The factory has won a lot of jewellery design competition in the world.
Jumbo Floating Restaurant (Dim Sum Lunch)
Jumbo Floating Restaurant – aside from feasting every imaginable appetite, the Restaurant will dazzle visitors with the same auspicious stories decorating regal residences of old, told through illustrious craftsmanship in the wealth of treasures on these world-renowned floating fantasies.
Most people come here for the market, however, located just up the road from the harbour. Over the years it's become known for its bargain clothes, though these days’ prices are not as keen as they were. It's still fun to browse, however, and the stalls are as good a place as anywhere in Hong Kong to buy souvenir T-shirts or inexpensive Chinese artifacts and household goods. After seeing the market wander down to Stanley's waterfront Main Street, lined with bars, pubs and restaurants popular with ex-pats. At its western end stands the Tin Hau Temple (1767), one of the oldest in Hong Kong.
