People who like to travel often skip Hong Kong thinking that it has nothing to offer but a week-full of shopping spree. Besides shopping, Hong Kong has so much more to offer. Here are our top 5 places to visit in Hong Kong when you are on a budget.

Amusement Park: Hong Kong Disneyland; Awaken The Child Within

Disneyland is of the major attractions in Hong Kong. For $US 76, you can avail an all day pass and enjoy all the rides and attractions in the theme park. Disneyland is accessible via Hong Kong's famed mass transport railway (MTR), shuttle and taxi services.

Amusement Park: Ocean Park; Extreme Rides With Ocean Creatures To Behold

If you are into extreme rides, then Ocean Park is a better choice than Disneyland. While the rides are the main attraction in this beautiful theme park, visitors can enjoy the site of the diverse marine life residing in the park's oceanarium. An all day pass will cost you $US 50 but it will allow you to enjoy all the park's rides, cable car, and the said oceanarium.

Ngong Ping 360: Cable Car To Buddha's Peak

Commonly known as Big Buddha, Giant Buddha, or the Tian Tan Buddha, the Buddha's Peak on Ngong Ping Lantau Island can be accessed via the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car. The Cable Car ride uphill will give visitor a magnificent view of the Lantau Island. Upon reaching the summit, travelers would have to traverse all 268 steps to reach the Big Buddha Platform. The Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Ride costs around $US 4.5.

Gateway to Macau

Hong Kong also serves as the gateway to the small nation of Macau. This former Portugese enclave is famous for its Las Vegas-like casinos. You can take a ferry boat from Sheung Wan, Hong Kong to Taipa, Macau by shelling out $US 22 to $US 39.

Hong Kong City Tour And Avenue of the Stars

Explore Hong Kong on board a classic open top tram car for $US 45. Passengers can alight on major city points in Hong Kong and then hop on again to continue their journey. The tram car provides an auto guide in eight languages. After touring the city, end your day watching a light show at the Avenue of the Stars.
