Hong Kong

Hong Kong When the curtain fell on the final act of imperial pageantry in "Honkers", with HMS Britannia sailing into the harbour and the last flourish of the Governor's ostrich-feather hat, the prophets foretold doom. They have been confounded, Hong Kong is still alive and thriving.

This Asian tiger may have had some of the stuffing knocked out of it since 1997, but it is still a roaring destination. Once the theatre for a unique confrontation (or collusion) between East and West, Hong Kong now presents a similar struggle between two entirely different visions of Chinese identity.
Hong Kong is divided into four main areas - Kowloon, Hong Kong Island, the New Territories and the Outlying Islands. Kowloon and the New Territories are on a peninsula of the Chinese mainland, on the northern side of Victoria Harbour; Hong Kong Island is on the southern side of the harbour facing Kowloon; the Outlying Islands simply refers to any of the other 234 islands. The New Territories has a 20km land border with China proper.

 

Victoria HarbourThe city itself is centred around Victoria Harbour. The main business district is Central, on Hong Kong Island. East of Central lies the Admiralty commercial district; Wan Chai, known for restaurants and clubs; then Causeway Bay, a major shopping area. Towering above it all is the Peak, Hong Kong's premier scenic outlook and residential district, which happily has plenty of public green space. In Kowloon, Tsim Sha Tsui (on the southern tip), Jordan and Yau Ma Tei are busy hotel and shopping areas, while Mong Kok is a bustling residential and shopping area.

 

Eaten Smart

 

Situated along Nathan Road, known as the Golden Mile for its shopping, Eaton Smart, Hong Kong is located within 1 km of open-air markets selling local handicrafts, shoes, clothes, and electronics.

 

Dining options include buffet spreads of international and Southeast Asian cuisine, served throughout most of the day; guests can work off the calories in a rooftop fitness center and Roman-style pool.

 

 

Langham Place, Mongkok

 

Linked by bridge to Langham Place Shopping Mall, this 42-story hotel offers access to 300 international shops, restaurants, a multiplex cinema, and the Mongkok subway station.

 

The 18,000-square-foot spa is inspired by the five Chinese elements; doubling as an art gallery, the hotel showcases some 1,700 modern art pieces from Hong Kong and mainland China.

 

 

Conrad Hongkong

 

This hotel is located in the Central Business District and near the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Macau Ferry Pier, and a short stroll from Hong Kong Park, Peak Tram and MTR subway station.

 

With panoramic views of Victoria Harbour and Victoria Peak, the Conrad Hong Kong has a ballroom, meeting rooms, and business center; guests may use the newly renovated 24-hour health club and outdoor swimming pool.

 

Cocktail Cruise and Dinner at Lei Yue Mun

 

Board the “Oriental Dragon” and cruise along Victoria Harbour for views that are quintessentially Hong Kong. Sip a cocktail, and drink in the stunning skyline vista before disembarking for a Chinese dinner.

Relax with a drink from the open bar while enjoying the world-class views of Hong Kong’s metropolitan cityscape set against suburban hills and peaks. Float by affluent Causeway Bay and its typhoon shelter—the city’s first—where deep-sea junks, luxurious yachts, and the floating homes of “boat people” crisscross the waters. Navigate past abandoned Kai Tak Airport with its runway still jutting far into the harbor.

Entering the narrowest part of the harbor, drop anchor at Lei Yue Mun and head ashore. Stroll through the narrow lanes of this collection of fishing villages that still retain the charm of times past. Sit down to an authentic Chinese seafood dinner to top off your evening tour of Hong Kong’s renowned Victoria Harbour.
