Hong Kong is a fascinating place of eclectic culture: the blend of Chinese and colonial British influences never ceases to delight and inspire. From Cantonese operas to the Hello Kitty Cafe, and the Man Mo temple, Tian Tan Buddha and Victoria Peak to gleaming skyscrapers, there is no shortage of things to admire and enjoy in Hong Kong. It’s a melting pot of international cuisines, too, so whether you prefer Vietnamese or Cambodian cooking, you’ll find Hong Kong to be filled with gourmet delights.
Of course, when staying in Hong Kong, you’ll want the appropriate level of comfort. There’s no shortage of excellent boutique hotels, so why not go for all-out luxury at the 5* Hotel Icon? The outdoor rooftop pool offers the perfect location for enjoying a martini as the sun sets over the city, and the hotel’s 4 cafes and bars will keep you nicely fed and watered throughout your stay. Offering unparalleled views of Kowloon harbour, the well appointed rooms are the last word in modern Asian luxury.
No less fabulous is the Ovolo Central- 2 Arbutnot Road. Based in central Hong Kong, the hotel offers complementary breakfast, mini bar items and happy hour drinks to all guests, as well as flat screen Apple TVs and iPod docks.
Lanson Place Hotel equally offers its guests a comfortable, classy experience, although it looks pretty different from the majority of most Hong Kong hotels. Based in a nineteenth-century French style colonial building, it’s miles away from the usual sheen and polish of Hong Kong’s ultramodern architecture, but most would argue it’s all the better for it. Offering guests their own kitchenettes, and clean lines with a European inspired aesthetic in its rooms, modern essentials are nevertheless not forgotten. Rooms come equipped with flat screen TVs, DVD players and iPod docks.
