Hong Kong certainly has a stunning location that can compete with any world-class city: dramatically set around Victoria harbour with skyscrapers, mountains, and The Peak soaring in the background.
Most of the action is centred on the Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island (though for space and greenery head for the New Territories and islands such as Lama.) If it’s high-end shopping and eating you’re after, Tsim Sha Tsui on Kowloon and Central on “the Island” have designer label boutiques, the glitziest shopping malls and glossy restaurants.
What about the most luxurious hotels, you may ask. Most are conveniently located in either Tsim Sha Tsui or Central. But even with the space constraints faced in the city, the top hotels have managed to carve a concrete jungle oasis for its patrons. Here’s our pick of presidential suites, from classic to contemporary, traditional to brand new, in which to take respite in this densely populated, fast-paced metropolis.
