CHERIE WONG, watches spe­cial­ist at Sotheby’s Hong Kong

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Hour Glass Presents -

Ur­ban hide­away ... Space is gold in Hong Kong and many ho­tels can be a bit too small for some. The un­der­stated Up­per House in Ad­mi­ralty has large rooms with a sim­ple yet chic in­te­rior de­sign, and the beau­ti­ful suites come with sweep­ing views of Vic­to­ria Har­bour. Brunch for the style set ... There are many great places, but San Ka La at Cause­way Bay is a must-visit café for great cof­fee and food with a nice am­bi­ence. Hol­i­day essen­tials ... A hat, a cam­era, and a good book. Din­ing musts ... Yum Cha at Cen­tral has In­sta-wor­thy cus­tard buns spew­ing hot, creamy cus­tard. Hu­tong at Tsim Sha Tsui has a mod­ern, old-China vibe and serves ex­quis­ite food in­spired by North­ern China. Sig­na­ture ex­pe­ri­ences ... Hong Kong and city life go hand in hand. So, you def­i­nitely wouldn’t want to miss out on the fa­mous night scene. Lan Kwai Fong and the SoHo area have a reper­toire of bars, clubs, in­de­pen­dent bou­tiques, and cool art spa­ces that’ll keep you busy from day to night.
