Wan Chai & Northeast Hong Kong Island
Versatile Wan Chai is a showcase of the arts and folk traditions, and a god of cookery. You'll also find here some better examples of Hong Kong's preservation efforts. To its west, Admiralty is home to government headquarters and mind-blowing hill-and-sea views, and offers quality over quantity for your shopping, dining and lodging needs.
The New Territories offers much cultural and natural interest. Ancient walled villages (Sheung Shui, Fan Ling, Yuen Long), wetlands teeming with birds and aquatic life (Yuen Long), temples (Tsuen Wan, Sha Tin, Fan Ling), a solid museum in Sha Tin, and generous expanses of unspoiled country are just some of its attractions.
Aberdeen & South Hong Kong Island
The southern district is not only a showcase of history – Pok Fu Lam has the island's last surviving village alongside vestiges of a Victorian dairy – but Aberdeen and Ap Lei Chau are also the homes of Hong Kong's boat-dwelling fishermen. As such, Aberdeen and Ap Lei Chau offer tasty seafood and boat-rides to a bygone era, while Ap Lei Chau also offers art and shopping.
The minted heart of Asia’s financial hub comes replete with corporate citadels, colonial relics and massive monuments to consumerism. It’s where you’ll find the stock exchange, the Four Seasons, Prada and award-winning restaurants, all housed in a compelling mix of modern architecture, alongside graceful remnants of the city's colonial history.
