While on layover in Hong Kong, get to know Hong Kong Island on a private five-hour tour, including round-trip airport transport by private vehicle. Hong Kong International Airport is approximately 21 miles (34 km) from downtown, making for an easy-to-do layover tour! Whether this is your first visit or you wish to refresh old memories of ever-changing Hong Kong, you’ll enjoy visiting Aberdeen’s fishing community, browsing for souvenirs at Stanley Market, seeing famous landmarks and learning about the island’s history – all with an informative local guide.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Victoria Peak (The Peak), No.1 Lugard Road, Hong Kong China

After pickup from the Hong Kong airport by private vehicle, your five-hour layover tour begins with a ride on the Victoria Peak tram for spectacular views of Hong Kong Island and its skyscrapers. Take an eight-minute funicular railway ride to the summit, where your personal guide will point out Kowloon and the surrounding islands of Victoria Harbour.

Next, pass beautiful Repulse Bay en route to your next destination, the famous fishing village of Aberdeen. Marvel at Hong Kong's floating community on Aberdeen Harbour and learn about this thriving village where fishermen and their families still reside aboard traditional junk boats. You'll have the option to board a sampan (flat-bottomed wooden boat) around the colorful harbor for a close-up view of waterborne life (at an additional cost).

Afterward, your guide will accompany you to Stanley Market, where goods are available at just a fraction of the price in town. Browse the small shops for great deals on everything from Chinese costume jewelry and souvenirs to silk clothing and sportswear.

When you’ve had your fill of bargain shopping, conclude your private layover tour of Hong Kong with a short visit to a well-known jewelry factory. Here, watch expert craftsmen create lovely works of art, constructed of beautiful gems and gold, and gain insight into the jewelry-making process before your guide returns you to the Hong Kong airport.
