When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
Wonderful, fairly small park with pools flower beds and glasshouses, all free to enter. Also a very interesting Tea museum, There is also an avery close by which is worth looking around for a short while.
I strongly advise you to get there early. We arrived for about 8.30 and got the tram straight up to the peak. Only problem with that is that the very top sky doesn't open till 10 but I felt that the view was just as good from tram drop off area and if I did it again would not pay...
I love it here. Old style Hong Kong busy life going on along an unspoilt waterfront with interest provided by ferries coming in and out and fishermen/women mending nets etc. Good basic seafood restaurants along the waterfront offering fresh local fish agt reasonable prices (not cheap prices). The seedy old boatyards at the end of the road are a really...
Not sure what to expect from a private museum, but I must say that this is a pleasant surprise. Not large compared to many maritime museum overseas (which typically boasts actual ships to boot), and no earth-shaking artifacts/objects. Instead, lots of nice models, interesting exhibits, and well-written explanatory notes on a wide range of themes. Nice view of the harbour...

"Thought I was going to miss out "
reviewed 6 days ago by A TripAdvisor Member
Was a large queue, to be expected at dinner time, but it didn’t take long.
Glad I had the chance because the place was ideal.
I was on my way home the next day and thought I wouldn’t get this quality here. But low and behold, it was perfect.
Recommend it to anyone who enjoys Italian.
My lunch at Amber was an extraordinary experience. The presentation of each dish was a mastery of art. The taste was magnificent. The wine pairing choice suggested by the sommelier was spectacular. He and all the staff were extremely professional and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was great and I enjoyed this experience with amazing friends.
Food was ok. Lots of amuse bouche so by the time you get to dessert, you'll be stuffed. Lamb was excellent, lobster bisque very flavourful. Highlight was the lemon dessert. It is pricey but that's what you get for excellent service.
I must say that this might be one of the sbsolute best hotels i have stayed in... I have stayed in many 5 star hotels but this one takes the price.
To be greated everyday by almost every staff member by name does not maybe sound so special but you feel very taken care of. I got sick during my...
Landmark MO is such a nice place to stay. The Staff is very polite and helpful. The environment is comfortable too. It is also close to shopping malls and transportation. Even the price is a bit high, it worths a pleasant and unforgettable stay in hk.
The hotel is one of the best around , facilities are great , food are excellent
On top of that I have enjoyed one of the best service which go beyond my expectations
They are nice and willing to proactively offer service and help which may be even out of their job duties
And they are flexible in handling issue...
We spent six nights at The Pottinger recently. This hotel is in an excellent location, very close to stations, ferries and the mid level escalators but is also a little oasis in the heart of Central. Our room was very comfortable and clean and it was always a relief to return to after a hectic day sightseeing. Breakfast was excellent...
This is a very good hotel, clean, modern and reasonably spacious. Very comfy bed and pillows. Free WiFi. Free bar fridge! Yes that’s correct. Beer, water juice restocked daily.
Great location sitting just above Hollywood road in the central restaurant and bar area.
