Hong Kong Travel Destinations


The former Asian jewel in the British crown, Hong Kong is now the most elegant city in Asia, center of commerce, cosmopolitan art and nightlife scene, and home to the finest dining and accommodations you will find in the Far East. Ultra modern and ultra chic, in Hong Kong you can visit private and public galleries to take in Asia’s top contemporary art scene as well as checking out ancient Chinese antiquities, and you can also go shopping in some of the world’s most boutique malls and department stores. Fashion is a big draw in Hong Kong, ranging from Chinese chic from the fashionistas at Shanghai Tang to getting a custom tailored suit from the boutique stitchers at The Armoury.

Hong Kong is legendary for its dining scene, and you will want to partake in some dim sum lunches featuring the best in Cantonese cuisine, which is heavily accented on fresh seafood like steamed crab and abalone, along with favorites like barbecued suckling pig. You can also sample the best Szechuan, Hunan, and other regional cuisines from around mainland China while in Hong Kong, not to mention haute French and sumptuous Japanese as its diverse restaurant scene is unparalleled and plentiful.

Hong Kong has one of the most magnificent cityscapes in the world, with hundreds of glittering high rise masterpieces rising over beautiful Victoria Bay, and Kept Secrets will get you aboard a helicopter for a bird’s eye tour of the surroundings. Almost as good as this is a tram ride up to the top of Victoria Peak, which also gives stunning views of the harbor and illuminated city at night, as well as access to the high point hikes above the crowds.

Despite being one of the most densely populated metropolises in the world, Hong Kong also boasts some fabulous white sand beaches and quiet islands far removed from the madness of Kowloon. Lantau Island is actually made up of mostly protected national park land, and beautiful for relaxing in nature on. Kept Secrets can arrange a private boat trip out here on a traditional Chinese junk and you can coast the South China Sea in style while looking for that perfect beach or stopping for a bit of windsurfing, which is a favored pastime in Hong Kong.

In Hong Kong, you certainly will not suffer a bad night’s sleep either, as some of the most stylish and welcoming luxury properties in the world are to be found here. Classic spots like the landmark Mandarin Oriental or the historic Peninsula are perennial favorites while the Ritz Carlton and Island Shangri La are the absolute tops in opulence and pampering.
