What to See
Get those sore plane feet massaged better at Happy Foot Luze on Lyndhurst Terrace, one of HK’s many foot massage palours – it’s a real tradition and so relaxing.
Happy Valley Races – head over to Happy Vally on a Wednesday night and get stuck into some serious drinking and gambling. It’s really fun and definitely worth a flutter or two.
Head to Hutong to dine on sublime Northern Chinese food in this super cool restaurant, which has the most spectacular views of the city.
Get the ferry from central pier to the south side of Lamma island and a Chinese seafood feast at Rainbow Restaurant.
Try eating all the dim sum at Michelin starred Din Tai Fung. Their Xiao long bao, pork dumplings filled with hot soup, are the best in the world. Get there early to avoid disappointment there are no reservations
Hong Kong is all about the shopping malls. Hit the IFC for wall to wall high-end designers and boutiques.
If you are looking for something a bit less high street try the trendy shops around Star Street in Wan Chai, very cool. Browse the many art galleries on Hollywood Road to see what you can find.
W Hotel – fabulous rooms and a beautiful pool on the roof that overlooks Central. This hotel is stunning.
Make your way to Shek O beach, which also has a street-side Thai street-food vendor opposite the Fuk Lee (no laughing) general store, so you won’t go hungry.
If you fancy a night on the whisky then Hong Kong has a great whisky bar for you – 001 Whisky Bar – hard to find and harder to get in, but well worth it! If you don’t make the cut then try The Blckbrd (Lyndhurst Terrace).
On your way home head to Tsui Wah (pronounced Choy Waa) on Wellington street, for late night beer and delicious Sichuan prawns.
