TRAVEL GUIDE: HONG KONG



With its sometimes harmonious, occasionally clashing and always intriguing blend of ancient Oriental traditions and cutting edge attitude, Hong Kong never fails to engage visitors. Despite the 1997 handoff to China, a British presence is still strong. You can catch a polo match in the morning and visit the nineteenth century, incense-filled Man Mo Temple in the afternoon. As for other constants we love about this city: non-stop shopping, the graciousness of The Peninsula hotel, early morning Tai Chi on the waterfront, street stall dumplings and the amazing views from Victoria Peak.

72-HOUR VACATION
Hot for Hong Kong

Like New York, Hong Kong is not a city for the faint of heart. Its pace is non-stop, and its attractions one-of-a-kind. Spend three days discovering its inimitable pursuits, from dining on dim sum in a Picasso-filled private club to shopping for frogs and orchids on Wellington Street.

BUSINESS TRAVEL GUIDE
Where to Stay, Eat and Play
While many argue that the city is on an inevitable decline as a financial tiger, we say otherwise. In fact, we feel that this is Hong Kong’s most exhilarating moment, and there’s no better time to do business here than now.
