Rooftop Bars
Hong Kong has one of the most spectacular skylines in the world with more than double the number of skyscrapers of NYC, a stunning harbour and also the world’s largest outdoor permanent light and sound show. With this in mind it’s no surprise that the city offers a number of chic rooftop bars to take in the view.

Some of the best include Sevva and Armani/Prive in Central, Wooloomooloo Steakhouse in Wan Chai and Hooray Bar & Restaurant in Causeway Bay.

Shopping
For fashion conscious travellers looking to purchase leading international brands and boutique designer labels, Hong Kong is the perfect destination. The abundance of glamorous shopping malls located throughout the city house hundreds of stores and the absence of an import tax and strong Australian dollar make shopping in Hong Kong excellent value.

Popular shopping precincts include: Tsim Sha Tsui, Mongkok and Yau Ma Tei in Kowloon and Admiralty, Central, and Causeway Bay on Hong Kong Island as well as Citygate on Lantau Island for outlet shopping with leading brands. Some of Hong Kong’s mega shopping malls include Harbour City, Elements and iSQUARE in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon as well as IFC Mall, Landmark, Pacific Place and Times Square on Hong Kong Island.

To ensure you are getting the highest quality, look for the Quality Tourism Services (QTS) Scheme label when shopping in Hong Kong.
