Langham Place Mong Kok sets itself apart from other hotels in Hong Kong with its superior service and modern styling. Located in one of the busiest areas in the city, it is a perfect base from which to explore.
Causeway Bay, while not as busy as Mong Kok, is still a thriving, lively area of Hong Kong. The best shopping district in the city, it is home to some must-see malls such as SOGO Department Store and Times Square.
SOGO is a 13-storey, Japanese department store where you can find anything and everything. Here you will find what seems like a never-ending array of brands from mid-range to luxury. Each floor is categorised by product type; wind your way up each floor and catch the lift back down.
Hysan Place shopping centre provides mid-range to luxury brands in an easy layout and is much less crowded than other malls in the area.
This little hole in the wall café is not easily found, however it will provide the best flat white in Hong Kong. If you need your daily coffee fix, make it a point to stop here.
Times Square is a large, 9-storey shopping mall mainly catering to luxury brands.
The Peak Tram is one of the most popular ways to reach Victoria Peak. The cable railway ascends for around five minutes and offers a unique view of the city.
Victoria Peak provides the most spectacular view of Hong Kong. The lights of Hong Kong are beautiful at night and there is nowhere better to see them than here.
The perfect place for dinner with a view. Grab yourself a window seat and tuck into some coconut shrimp, it will be a meal you won't forget!
Ngong Ping Village, while by no means quiet, is a nice escape from the city. Here you will find the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery. The best way to reach Ngong Ping village is by cable car - the scenic ride takes around 20 minutes and offers 360 degree views.
The Tian Tan Buddha (or Big Buddha) took over a decade to plan and construct. It is a beautiful feat of architecture which draws pilgrims from across Asia. Ascend around 260 steps for a closer look - you won't be disappointed.
Po Lin Monastery has been around for more than a century and is still active today. Visit to immerse yourself in buddhist culture and see very important piece of Lantau's history.
Mong Kok is everything you imagine Hong Kong to be. It's cute, kitschy shops, night markets and food stalls all rolled into one eclectic area.
Night markets are a must-visit for anyone who wants to discover Hong Kong and the Ladies Market is a brilliant place to start. These markets showcase some of Hong Kong's most famous vibrant culture. Explore the wares on offer and try your hand at haggling!
Fa Yuen Street is also known as 'Sneaker Street' and is the best place in Hong Kong to buy (as the name suggests) sneakers of any kind. Store after store showcases an enormous selection of sneakers and sportswear at affordable prices.
Stanley is a scenic, seaside area with a relaxed, easygoing vibe. From beaches, to markets, to restaurants Stanley has it all.
Stanley Market is quieter and more relaxed than its Mong Kok counterparts. Here you won't be haggling but you will find a greater and higher quality selection of goods.
Stanley Plaza houses many great places to eat while in the Stanley area. Visit Classified to try some great Italian food or if you're just after a coffee The Cupping Room has you covered.
