Jerry Wong (Conservative Baptist Lui Ming Choi Primary School,P5)
Tsim Sha Tsui is the best place in Hong Kong. If you are a movie fan, you can take photos at the Avenue of Stars. If you like history, science or space, l would recommend the Museum of History, the Science Museum or the Space Museum.
Cheryl Cheng Tsz-sau (SKH St. James Primary School,P4)
The most surprising place I have visited in Hong Kong is King Yin Lei. This large and elegant mansion was built in 1937 in both Chinese and Western styles of architecture. It is an important landmark in Hong Kong history. I hope you too will enjoy a visit
Yeung Ho-wing (TWGHs Tang Shiu Kin Primary School,P6)
It has to be The Peak because I can ride on the Peak Tram to get there. That is a unique experience in its own right. I can admire the skyscrapers around Victoria Harbour from above, especially during sunset when the night sky turns pink and orange. It is beautiful.
So Chit-yui (SKH St. James Primary School,P4)
Nam Sang Wai is the most surprising place I have visited in Hong Kong. It is a wetland area located in northern Yuen Long. It is home to many birds. There are grasslands and cycling paths. A small boat is needed to cross the river. The view there is beautiful.
Legina Lee Ching-nam (SKH St. James Primary School,P4)
This is the Cheung Po Tsai Cave in Cheung Chau. The cave is 88 metres long and the entrance is very narrow. It is said that the pirate Cheung Po Tsai hid some of his treasures here before he died. Many people like visiting this underground pirate hideout.
Yuk Ki-chong (C & MA Sun Kei Primary School （Ping Shek）,P1)
On the first day of 2017 I went to watch the sunset in Tsing Yi with my family. It was very beautiful. We could also see the airport and the Tsing Ma Bridge, the longest suspension bridge with both rail and road traffic in the world!
Austen Tang (Yaumati Catholic Primary School (Hoi Wang Road),P5)
I enjoyed the island of Tap Mun which is located in Sai Kung. Many fearless cows live there. The most precious moment was watching the sunrise. It was stunning. People say Hong Kong is a concrete jungle, but I think they are definitely wrong. Our city is a green heaven.
Lau Renee (St. Paul's Convent School (Primary Section),P3)
I went to Aberdeen Promenade with my family. We stood on the Viewing Deck to see the surrounding landscape. I found the seafood market at one end of the Promenade, and discovered the ferries to the Floating Restaurant at the other. It was a surprising day out.
Kate Fan (Renaissance College,Y5)
The Long Ke Wan Nature Trail is the most fascinating place that I have ever visited in Hong Kong. The peacefulness of clear waters and fine white sand is impressive. Huge trees frame the tranquil beach. I couldn’t believe that Hong Kong boasts such an amazing mini-paradise!
Au Yuet-ling (G.T. (Ellen Yeung) College (Primary Section),P4)
Have you ever imagined walking deep underwater without breathing apparatus? You can do so at Ocean Park’s Polar Adventure attraction and see various sea animals, from seals to penguins, swimming around leisurely and up close. Isn’t that wonderful? Go and check it out!
Rex Shek Yat-chun (SKH Tsing Yi Chu Yan Primary School,P5)
Ocean Park is full of excitement. When I was there with my family, we went on many rides, tried bumper cars, visited the pandas and watched the dolphin show. The Dragon is the most famous roller coaster and the cable car offers beautiful views of southern Hong Kong Island.
Lo Wing-ting (SKH Tsing Yi Chu Yan Primary School,P5)
The Hong Kong Museum of History is full of surprises. The exhibits, 3D animations and multimedia programmes make learning about the history of our hometown fun. Plus you can visit for free on Wednesdays!
See Hiu-laam (St. Anthony's School,P6)
I think the most surprising place I have visited is the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre. I joined a group at school to learn to make sculptures there. I created toys out of wood and glass, and integrated traditional and modern techniques. It was exciting.
Angel Ng On-ki (Tai Po Baptist Public School,P6) Jolly Chen Sze-wun (Tai Po Baptist Public School,P6) Chloe Chiu Yuk-ching (Tai Po Baptist Public School,P6)
The Hong Kong Railway Museum in Tai Po is one of the most interesting attractions in Hong Kong. It is a short walk from Tai Po Market station. Admission is free. You can see old trains and learn how the railway developed in Hong Kong. You can also board an old carriage and take photos. It makes for a great family day out, and you will never regret visiting!
Anna Hsieh (Stewards Pooi Kei Primary School,P5)
I am surprised how different Stanley Prison is from my imagination. I thought it would be dark and the food would be horrible, just like in the movies. However, it was quite bright and the food looked good. It turns out that prison in real life is very different.
Christopher Hung (Stewards Pooi Kei Primary School,P6)
Have you heard of Fa Yuen Street in Mong Kok? It’s where you can buy clothes, fruits or just about anything! Although it gets crowded at weekends, it’s a great place for shopping. The best thing about it: you can bargain over the price!
I had a fantastic taste of a farmer’s life in Tsat Sing Kong, Yuen Long. I worked as hard as a bee in the farm with natural fertiliser. I pulled a sweet carrot from the soil which was really fresh. I also collected peas and cabbages. Let’s treasure our food.
Wong Suet-wing (Tung Koon School,P4)
Last week, my family and I visited the Kowloon Walled City Park. It was a walled city and the only place the British government had no power over during the colonial era. It was amazing to see the ancient building called the Yamen still standing.
Yuki Liang Yuen-ki (Tung Koon School,P4)
In 1279, people inscribed the words “Sung Wong Toi” on a huge rock in Ma Tau Wai in memory of the Sung Dynasty emperors who once took refuge there. I am happy to see this rock, which was broken during the Japanese occupation, but was repaired and is on display again.
Sally Chen Wan-nan (Tung Koon School,P4)
Hong Kong is a modern city, but it still retains its history. Trams have served the city since 1904. I like it when a cool breeze caresses my face every time I ride on it. I also like it that trams travel slowly, like a cradle that lulls me to sleep.
Vynci Law (Renaissance College,Y5)
I went to Needle Hill during the Easter Holidays. I loved the butterflies that came in a riot of colours. What I also liked was the spectacular birds’ eye view of Hong Kong. To keep myself going, I kept telling myself that we would reach the peak soon!
Sam Zhu Hesheng (Yaumati Catholic Primary School (Hoi Wang Road),P4)
Island House is a historic building located in Yuen Chau Tsai, Tai Po. It is more than 100 years old. It was the official residence of 15 former District Commissioners of the New Territories. Now, it is a declared monument. I enjoyed visiting this beautiful building and learning about its history.
Amos Li (St. Andrew's Catholic Primary School,P4) Yoyo Lau (St. Andrew's Catholic Primary School,P4) Gordon Lai (St. Andrew's Catholic Primary School,P4)
It’s in the southern part of Hong Kong, by the seaside and packed with biodiversity. Its streets are filled with local souvenirs. Where is it? It’s STANLEY. You can find lots of buildings there, like the Pak Tai Temple and Murray House. Ma Hang Park is filled with plants and animals including insects, birds, snakes, boars and squirrels. The number of bugs are uncountable, like jumping spiders, caterpillars and stick insects. I love this place because it is filled with mouth-watering foods like Indian curry, adventure and new discoveries!
Chen Yat-yeung (Tseung Kwan O Government Primary School,P4)
Lamma Island is a good place for a holiday. There is a big windmill. This is the only windmill that makes electricity in Hong Kong. It is a small island so it is always crowded at weekends or on holidays. We can also go hiking there.
