Hong Kong

Free and inexpensive things to do in Hong Kong?

Hey guys I'm heading to Hong Kong with a few friends but we'll be on a bit of a budget. What are some cool, free activities we can do while there? We're up for any suggestions as long as they're free or cheap. Any ideas? Thank you!

art galleries- 2P Contemporary Art Gallery and Gagosian Gallery are free and have some great exhibitions.

Get an octopus card before you leave the airport-it will cover bus, tram, metro and ferries. Research ways of getting from the airport-buses from the airport are often cheaper than the airport train.

The light show on Victoria Harbour at 8pm every night. 

Take a ferry across the harbour-Star ferries. Take the tram up to The Peak-for experience of the tram and views. Bank of China tower has a free observation deck for great views of Hong Kong.

A lot of museums are free on Wednesdays-a couple are closed for renovation at present, so check before going.

Longest escalator system in world from Central is fun.

Markets in Kowloon- Ladies' Market and Temple St night markets.

Lan Kwai Fong in Central is the bar and nightlife area-worth a visit.

Temples- Man Mo Temple, Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha) and Po Lin Monastery on Lantau-ride the cable car, Chi Lin Nunnery.

If you're looking for cheap lunches-check out some of the bigger supermarkets in Central- an amazing range of "to go" stuff. Some great little dumpling places really cheap as well. When in Kowloon, look up-a lot of great little cheap restaurants are on the first floor not ground level.

Take bus to Stanley- visit the markets (not that great these days) but some nice walks and temples to see and the bus ride is very scenic.
