    What restaurants have the best views in Hong Kong?

    Aqua offers an uninterrupted panoramic view of the Victoria Harbour presented through floor-to-ceiling windows spanning two stories. Any Hong Konger will tell you that the best view is from Kowloon looking back to the Hong Kong Island skyline (and not vice versa). Also, Spoon by Alain Ducasse in [Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star] InterContinental Hong Kong has a great view.

    When is the best time to visit Hong Kong?

    Chinese New Year is a great time to visit Hong Kong. The weather is cooler and the streets are quieter as most locals are out of town. There are no lines; and when you do run into crowded areas, it actually adds to the fun because everyone is out enjoying the festive season. Finding a table in Hong Kong’s best Chinese restaurants is also easier during this time.

    I’m on the road much of the year; so major public holidays are the only time I get to enjoy my office. Since we set up our office in Bangkok two years ago, I’ve been spending a third of my time in Thailand and have loved exploring their culture.

    What are the best things to see and do in Hong Kong?

    1. Venture up to Victoria Peak for the best view of Hong Kong.

    2. Be sure to take the Star Ferry to enjoy the views from either side of the Victoria Harbour.

    3. You should enjoy a typical local Hong Kong meal in a cha chaan teng (a tea food hall).

    4. I like wandering around Hollywood Road, which is dotted with antique stores. I rarely buy anything from Hollywood Road, but I like to stroll and browse the neighborhood — just to stop to have a chat with the shop owners or simply soak up the local culture and rich atmosphere.

    5. You have to sample dim sum at Hong Kong’s famous Fook Lam Moon restaurant in the Wan Chai district. Fook Lam Moon serves very traditional and authentic dim sum, unlike some of its counterparts. And the quality is very consistent.
