2. Go bar-hopping
Did you know that Hong Kong is home to several Asia’s Best Bars? Take it from the experts: Coa, Argo, Darkside, Quinary, Penicillin, The Pontiac, The Wise King, and The Aubrey are all names you should look out for. We’ve been to every single one of them, of course, and we love them all, but Coa simply has the best mezcal cocktails and Darkside is the only one that offers live music on this list. Just sayin’. 😉
3. Shop ’til you drop!
Calling all shopaholics! Hong Kong is known as a shopping paradise, so get your currency exchanged and be ready to shop up a storm. From local gems to global designer brands, you’re bound to have your bags full (and your wallet empty, maybe!).
