Things to Do in North Point
North Point is one of the most popular local residential areas of Hong Kong, and as such, it offers an authentic feel and an excellent range of local restaurants and attractions. Offering its residents excellent transport connections and good proximity to the most popular business hubs, it is an excellent choice for an extended stay in Hong Kong.
North point, located on Hong Kong Island’s northeastern coast, is far more popular with local residents than with tourists and expatriates. English is less widely spoken and small local businesses are more common than large, global brands. However, there are plenty of places to visit in North Point – from unique Hong Kong attractions to authentic North Point markets. Although there is a greater selection of serviced accommodation in the popular tourist and expatriate areas of Hong Kong, visitors looking to stay in North Point will still find a good selection of luxury serviced apartments and other accommodation options.
Due to the large local population, North Point has developed an excellent transport network in the area – offering surprisingly swift connections into Central Hong Kong. Using the Blue Island Line or the Purple Tseung Kwan O Line on the MTR, visitors can reach popular business and tourist destinations within 15 minutes. Another excellent transport option is the Hong Kong Tramways Line – offering the same swift connections but with the added bonus of cheaper fares and excellent views during the journey.
With a bustling late-night snacking culture and plenty of shops and beauty salons, the local area is a wonderful place to spend some time or to settle down during an extended stay in Hong Kong. For more information on what to do in North Point, continue reading our Hong Kong area guide.
