1. One of the nicer things to do is to go to the south side of the island. You can take a car and just drive by South Bay, Deep Water Bay and Repulse Bay — that long string of beaches. A lot of people come to Hong Kong for a few days and they don’t realize that on the other side of the city it’s so leisurely and picturesque. It might sound obvious, but a lot of people do miss that, especially when they’re here for business.
2. In Kowloon, there’s the Kadoorie Hill. It’s basically a small hill of residential properties that has been developed over the last 50 years, so there’s some post-war architecture and some houses built today. A lot of it was built in the 1960s and ’70s. It’s really amazing because Hong Kong is a city with a lot of brand new buildings and high-rises. When you have a mountain of these low-rises alongside landscape, it’s really interesting.
3. There’s a restaurant called Yardbird, which is located on Bridges Street in a Bauhaus-style white building with black window frames. It’s a very urban yakitori experience. It’s quite edgy, very much encapsulating the modern spirit of Hong Kong.
