Escape to Hong Kong
I like to stay at Lanson Place in Causeway – Bay Hong Kong Island. The rooms are styled to perfection with pops of unexpected colour and contemporary art scattered around the hotel.
Sense of Touch Spa is an award winning spa operator with 6 locations. One worth a trip is up to their location in Repulse Bay. Signature treatments include the Opium – a poppy seed scrub and full-body massage; Fragrant Harbour – a total body aromatic massage of sandalwood and rose; and the Tobacco – a full body massage using a mix of tobacco flower, ginger oil, and sea salt scrub.
Queens Road Central is a great street of fashion where you will find everything from Chanel to Cos.
Lane Crawford, located in Times Square, is a huge department store (one of the best in the world) with an amazing homewares section including a number of emerging and established international designers.
Located on Sau Wa Fong in Wan Chai’s booming Star Street district, LALA CURIO’s flagship store is for the truly inquisitive. Its persimmon red facade complete with ancient Indian woodcarvings is just a hint of what lies inside.
LALA CURIO is a home décor brand that specialises in playfully crafted interior spaces with furnishings, decorative objects, cloisonné tiles and wallpaper. LALA CURIO celebrates traditional artisanship with contemporary humour. Such a unique shopping experience which can’t be found anywhere else!
On the way to Stanley from Central along the West side of Hong Kong Island you’ll pass Deepwater Bay and Repulse Bay. Both offer good stretches of sand and perfect opportunities to watch the yachts and cruisers in the bays. A little further south of Repulse Bay are the less-visited Middle Bay and South Bay.
Getting from A to B in the busy streets of Hong Kong is made easy by the Metro – it’s the quickest and most convenient way to move around this vibrant city!
