Hong Kong has a vibrant, densely populated urban center that is a major port and global financial hub with a skyscraper-studded skyline. It is also a major shopping destination. Here’s how to explore it while staying on budget.

 

Open 24 hours a day, The Flying Pan is the perfect spot to start your day. They have a huge range of breakfast options with a lot of combinations to satisfy everyone’s needs. They serve a bottomless coffee pot to help wake you up for a day of adventure. You can expect to spend around $15 here.

 

After breakfast, enjoy a nice mid-morning hike at Dragon’s Back. It is one of the easiest hikes in the city. Its peak is incredibly rewarding with panoramic views of the sun, sea, mountains and outlying islands.

 

After your hike, check out Pinot Duck for lunch. They offer a variety of different duck dishes and more. You can expect to spend less than $20 on lunch here.

 

For a nice afternoon relaxation, Big Wave Bay Beach is just three miles away from Pinot Duck. This beach is a hit with local windsurfers. This beach is less crowded than Shek O, making it great for relaxing and sun bathing.

 

Chan Kan Kee Chiu Chow is a great place for dinner. Chan Kan Kee is a specialist in lo shui, foods like goose, tofu and eggs poached in a liquid mostly flavored with soy sauce and five spice. Meals here will be around $25 or less.

 

After dinner, head over to Lan Kwai Fong for happy hour running 7–10 p.m. It is Hong Kong’s legendary nightlife zone, and home to more than 90 bars and restaurants.
