Sightseeing tours      

Free tours showcasing the culture, heritage and tourist attractions of Hong Kong have been arranged for 31 October 2014 (Friday). Each delegate (with a maximum of two accompanying family members) is cordially invited to join and register for ONE of the tours listed below. Seats are limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis. Participants are invited to register online or at the Sightseeing counter.

Tour A
The Peak and Stanley Market

  • The Peak: This is the highest point on Hong Kong Island and one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong, offering a view that stretches across sparkling skyscrapers and Victoria Harbour all the way to the green hills of Hong Kong.

  • Stanley Market: This market in the quaint village of Stanley on Hong Kong Island’s south coast is a huge hit with locals, expats and tourists for good reason: its enormous selection of brand-name clothing items and accessories, jewellery, home furnishings, souvenirs, ornaments and Oriental knick-knacks are sold at reasonable prices in a picturesque warren of lanes.

Tour B
Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Chi Lin Nunnery

  • Hong Kong Heritage Museum: The museum houses 12 galleries that regularly host exhibitions to showcase diverse treasures of Chinese heritage. A wide range of thematic exhibitions are held, featuring Cantonese opera, Chinese art and heritage highlighting the history, culture and arts of early Hong Kong and the nearby South China region.

  • Chi Lin Nunnery: Established in 1934 and renovated in 1990 in the style of the Tang dynasty (AD 618–907), the Chi Lin Nunnery is a large temple complex of elegant wooden architecture, treasured Buddhist relics and soul-soothing lotus ponds. The complex also includes a series of temple halls, some of which contain gold, clay and wooden statues representing divinities such as the Sakyamuni Buddha and bodhisattvas.
