Make your way to Hong Kong by flight (or high speed rail if going from mainland China). Be met and transfer with a private vehicle to your hotel check in. In the later afternoon, you will join in a sitting-in bus tour to visit some highlights of Hong Kong.
You will be met at your hotel around 16:00-16:40pm. The first spot you will visit is the 60-metre-tall (197-foot) Hong Kong Observation Wheel, located at the Central Harbourfront. The wheel is designed to suit Hong Kong’s climate and weather. It is built within the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department and TUV standards. The next spot is the Temple Street, located in the areas of Jordan and Yau Ma Tei in Kowloon. The night market lies in the Yau Ma Tei, Jordan part of the street. Popular with tourists and locals alike in the evening, it is also common to see the place crowded at dusk, with various cheap merchandise and food items to sell.

However, there are none resting on any solid evidence that has so far been established. It is now one of the most expensive housing areas in Hong Kong. Later, visit the Aberdeen Fishing Village, where a large number of people (about 6000) who lived and worked on the junks moored there. Over the years the number of the boats has dwindled as more and more of the "boat people" have moved into high-rises or abandoned fishing as a career. Although it has now been transformed into a semi-commercial district, it has maintained the style of a fishing village.
