Discover Hong Kong: Asia’s World City
Known as Asia’s World City, Hong Kong boasts eighteen unique Districts, eleven major shopping areas and six 3-Star Michelin Restaurants—along with countless temples, street-vendors, bargains…
And a Monograms Vacation lets you experience it all.
With itineraries ranging from four to ten days, Hong Kong has never been more accessible to Canadian travellers looking for an Eastern escape. Whether your tastes run to the cultural, historical or haute couture, Hong Kong has something for you.
Travellers looking for a broader view of East Asia can take advantage of Monograms’ multi-day stays in Beijing and Shanghai before being whisked away to inimitable Hong Kong. Hand-picked Local Hosts® help personalize your vacation with insider advice, so whether it’s searching out the best dim sum in Central or where to catch a wave in the Outlying Islands, you’re on your way to living like a Hong Konger.
While you’re there, don’t forget to enjoy Hong Kong’s iconic scenery. Your Monograms private guided tour includes a ride on the Peak Tram up Victoria Peak, famously featured in the opening and closing scenes of Soldier of Fortune, starring Clark Gable, followed by a sampan ride in Victoria Harbour. Finish with a visit to famous Stanley Market, where the narrow streets are filled with arts, crafts and one-of-a-kind souvenirs.
Best of all, a Monograms vacation includes plenty of free time to indulge your passions. Relax on a sunset sailing trip in the harbour to watch Hong Kong’s famous skyline come to life, take a trip to Tsim Sha Tsui to see ‘Hollywood of the East’s‘ Garden of Stars, or visit the Temple Street Night Market to celebrate the Year of the Monkey with fortune telling and Chinese opera. For those who like to live on the wild side, Hong Kong’s vast swathes of green space invite visitors to take to the trails.
Why melt down when you can melt into a vacation state of mind? Forget your stress at home with pre-booked excursions reserved and paid in Canadian dollars before ever stepping foot outside your front door. Streamline your vacation, making it as easy as hopping on a flight, and never worry about whether that bucket-list activity will be sold-out on site. With a Monograms vacation, you can reserve your excursions up to 90 days in advance, and down to 11 days before departure, giving you plenty of opportunity to decide which one—or all—of the many excursions catch your interest.
Hong Kong lights up after dark, and a Highlights of the Night tour introduces you to the best of the sparkle. Start with a ride on the Hong Kong Observation Wheel for spectacular views of world-famous Victoria Harbour, followed by a hop aboard a double-decker open-top bus for an unsurpassable drive through neon-lit streets. Finally, board your boat for a leisurely cruise on the harbour—including a gourmet buffet dinner! After a night on the town, recapture your Zen with our Lantau Island Monastery Tour—on this full day tour, travel by ferry to Hong Kong’s largest island, home to the Giant Buddha at the Po Lin (Precious Lotus) Monastery. Gaze in awe at the size of this incredible Buddha statue with the sky as its only backdrop, and relish a traditional vegetarian Buddhist lunch—good for the body and soul! Thus nourished, ride the cable car from Tung Chung and marvel at the spectacular views of Lantau Island and the South China Sea. Throughout the day, relax and unwind as you discover pristine beaches, traditional fishing villages, lush valleys, soaring mountains and perhaps even spiritual enlightenment. Namaste!
