Hong Kong

Our verdict:

Jet lag, it seems, holds little fear for the new breed of short breakers, especially those willing to splash out on a flat bed in business class. Hong Kong, set on a dramatic neon-lit harbour, is Asia's most thrilling city, a culture shock of night markets and dim sum, songbirds and sampans, backstreet temples and bargain shopping.

Abercrombie & Kent says

A repository of traditional Chinese culture with recent echoes of a colonial British past, Hong Kong offers a fantastic opportunity to experience a vibrant Chinese city and some of the world’s finest hotels for post-sightseeing pampering.

The city has a glut of outstanding restaurants, tourist attractions and seductive shopping in keeping with its standing as one of the key economies of the Pacific Rim.

Our collection of luxury hotels provide the perfect base from which to explore the city’s sights and sounds. Each has been selected for its spectacular views and convenient location.

The Peninsula, bang on Victoria Harbour, offers grandiose traditional style with contemporary touches. Close by is the ultra-smart Mandarin Oriental and the Four Seasons, just steps from the Star Ferry. Shopaholics will love W Hong Kong, next door to the Elements lifestyle shopping mall and close to the famous Tsimshatsui shopping area.
