CHERIE WONG, watches specialist at Sotheby’s Hong Kong
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.
