Hong Kong Island is an island in the southern part of Hong Kong. No trip to Hong Kong is complete without a stop at Victoria Peak, the highest point of Hong Kong Island. There are plenty more vantage points throughout the island, all of which boast panoramic views of the region and the South China Sea. With so many things to do on Hong Kong Island, it's worth doing a bit of research beforehand so that you can fully experience the essence of what Hong Kong is all about. There are a few cultural attractions that you might want to try, along with fun destinations for the family. The island is often referred to locally as ``Hong Kong side`` or ``Island side``. Suffix ``side`` applied to other locations (e.g. China-side and Kowloon Walled City-side), the sole remnant of which is ``Kowloon side`` when indicating the two sides of the harbour.
