Hong Kong

I have only 24 hours in Hong Kong.
I might be a bit tired but hope to see some of the sights.
What are some Places I should try to see.
Thanks for your suggestions.

May be you can have a Cruise sightseeing in Victoria Harbor. The route will take you along Central - Admiralty - Wanchai - Causeway Bay - Eastern Hong Kong Island - Eastern Kowloon - Tsim Sha Tsu.

In this cruise sightseeing in Victoria Harbor, you wil see many famous architectural sights in Hong Kong, enjoy your dinner buffet, with live band performance on board. It's a relax without too tired.

What harrybridges suggests above is a good idea. It's also easy just to take the ferry from Kowloon to Hong Kong island or vice versa. The fee is just like for a local transportation and you'll have great views.

You can also do the no. 1 sightseeing everybody does in HK: Victoria Peak. You'll have to wait in long lines but then the experience is great. You'll be taken up to the peak by a steep funicular and then the peak offers the best views of Hong Kong's landscapes (mainly the skyscrapers, but it's unique to see them from above )

Besides the cruise, there is the bus tour option as well.

I'd use public transport for what I wanted to see in Hong kong - cheap and easy. The ferry between HK Island and Kowloon is cheap and scenic. Use the subway to get around otherwise, cheap and fast. A bus is not a great idea in HK traffic.

Why take a cruise when you can ride the Star Ferry for so cheap? Not much added for such a cruise.
