Avenue of the Stars:

Deep Water Bay lies beyond Aberdeen along a scenic coastal road flanked by flame trees and imposing cliffside mansions. Its public beach is one of the most attractive in Hong Kong. Repulse Bay is Hong Kong Island's most popular beach and is easily accessible by bus or taxi from Central. The large, sandy beach has been extended recently and there are many facilities for beachgoers and day-trippers,
including shops, restaurants and bars.

Shek O can be seen from the hill above. Its ambience is still traditional and rustic, in dramatic contrast to the millionaires' mansions on the surrounding hillsides and headland. The exclusive golf and country club nearby is where they play. Many others make for the golden sands of Big Wave Bay, where Bronze-Age rock carvings can be found.
Few statues anywhere in the world have such a powerful pull on the imagination as the Giant Buddha gazing serenely on the Po Lin (Precious Lotus) Monastery from its hillside site at Ngong Ping on Lantau Island.

Take a ferry to Silvermine Bay (Mui Wo) from the Central Pier, and Bus No 2 to Po Lin. Or take the MTR to Tung Chung station, and Bus No 23. Allow a full day for the trip and, depending on your schedule, consider a meal at Silvermine Bay or Tung Chung before undertaking the long bus ride.

Statue Square:
This square is a mixture of Hong Kong's contemporary architecture that reaches its most spectacular expression in the designs of The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation and the Bank of China Tower. The most significant feature of the HSBC building is that it has been designed without a central core. The Bank of China Tower became a much-debated conversation piece following its construction, largely because of the asymmetrically designed height.

How to get there: MTR Central station, exit K.
