There’s a neighbourhood for everyone: art, architecture, and endless shopping
Hong Kong has something extraordinary to explore in every neighbourhood. Art and design lovers will want to head straight to Sheung Wan, where street art, galleries, and flea markets can be found in abundance. Sham Shui Po is is a haven for cool cafes, antiques, and some amazing heritage buildings that photographers will love to snap, while Tsim Sha Tsui (TST if you’re in the know) is a thriving metropolis of colours and cultures, flanked by luxury department stores, world-class hotels, and never ending alleyways packed with unique stores and stalls.
Eat like a local: food is everything to Hong Kongers
If you see a queue in Hong Kong, then you know that restaurant is a hot spot. Foodies will love spending hours roaming the streets of Cheung Chau and Causeway Bay trialling street food like egg waffles, fish balls, or delectable cart noodles. Local breakfasts are all about French toast (with lashings of butter and syrup), pantyhose milk tea, and who’s going to say no to some superb dim sum?
At night, it’s time to get fancy and head to one of the many fine dining restaurants across town where you can live your best food life and fill up both your stomach and your social media. Be sure to leave room for something sweet, or pick up an egg tart or bubble tea on the way home for maximum fullness.
Did somebody say shopping?
From the cobbled footpaths of Old Town Central to the bustling mega malls peppered across Kowloon, Hong Kong has long been a haven for travellers looking to pick up a special something. Bespoke suits, qipao, or footwear can be whipped up in a flash to your exact specifications, or head to Tai Kwun or PMQ to find locally designed jewellery, ceramics, art, and fashion.
If it’s souvenirs you’re after, you’ll find everything you need, and some things you just really want at the Ladies’ Market in Mong Kok or around the Tai Yuen Street/Cross Street Bazaar in Wan Chai. Grab a t-shirt for your family, a traditional tea set for yourself, and while you’re there, an extra suitcase to take it all home in.
