Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is located in the center of the island’s Central neighborhood and close to its most storied attractions. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel was built on the former site of the former colonial Queen’s Building and next to Statue Square, a public space that was originally designed to house statues of the British monarchy. A few blocks away is the popular nightlife area of Lan Kwai Fong, and the antiques row of Hollywood Road. The famed Central Mid-levels escalators will take you to some of the city’s most interesting and historic streets, including Lyndhurst Terrance, Cochrane, Shelley and Elgin streets. To squeeze in a bit about Chinese history, have a look at Man Mo Temple on Hollywood Road. It was built in 1847 to worship the ancient Chinese gods of literature and war.
