A tiny dot that makes a big impression

Though little more than a dot along the southern coastal tip of the Republic of China, Hong Kong’s own unique characteristics make a big impression. And it’s not all gleaming glass and steel towers. Only a few blocks away from its teeming main thoroughfares, small roads and alleyways are home to earthy noodle bars and colourful fresh produce markets. Jump aboard a ferry to one of the Outer Islands or catch a train to the New Territories for a rural contrast.

Cosmopolitan mix-and-match eating

Stay Editor's Note

Alain Ducasse’s Spoon was a pioneer of fusion food in Paris, with its international wine list and globetrotting array of culinary techniques and condiments. A decade on it’s still a fun place to eat, with its sleek decor and amusing if sometimes gimmicky menu.

Lunch on the daily formule served in a Japanese-style bento box or choose from a carte that ranges from tuna satay and tandoori spare ribs to cheesecake.
