Hong Kong is a wonderful place to visit, but it has one of the highest population densities in the world. There are approximately 6,690 people per square kilometer throughout the region. In some areas, this number increases to more than 52,000 people. Don’t lose hope as a crowd-phobic person, however. Here are a few ways you can keep your cool during a Hong Kong trip.
Skip the central part of Hong Kong and take some time to explore the outlying islands. Peng Chau is a complete 180 from the hectic pace in Hong Kong. You can relax with beautiful sunsets at the beach and visit serene temples and shrines. You also see remnants of the island’s industrial past. Lantau Island is perfect if you want some city perks, like great shopping, with far fewer crowds. If you’re a fan of Buddhist architecture, you’re going to love the views.
