The Ritz Carlton, Hong KongBack to previous
Holiday in Hong Kong
Soaring skyscrapers with a backdrop of verdant green peaks, this is Hong Kong Island and the city's heart. Here is the economic, historical and political centre that provides the perfect destination for shopping, entertainment and everything you could wish to find in the commercial heart of this island in the deep Victoria Harbour. The perfect blend of man-made and natural landscapes sitting alongside each other from Victoria Peak overlooking the central region of Hong Kong. Here you can fully appreciate the streets, skyscrapers, harbour and the Kowloon Peninsula from above. Head back down into the city to try some local delicacies such as shredded jellyfish or snake soup or a more calming morning of t’ai chi at dawn might be more to your taste.
This city also looks stunning at sea level on the Star Ferry between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon which will also take you to the vibrant shopping of Tsim Sha Tsui and the Harbour Shopping Centre. The history of the city can be discovered in Kowloon Walled City Park, once the home of a Qing Dynasty military station which grew to be a large city but has since been knocked down and replaced with a park full of old structures and relics of the city as well as the Qing Dynasty garden. The south coast also offers beaches, traditional markets and laid-back cafés.Book now
