Hong Kong island
On the southern shores of Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong Island is usually the first stop on travelers’ itineraries. Its heart is Central, home to the city’s most impressive architecture, restaurants, nightlife and art galleries. Ride the hyper-fast MTR or the slow-yet-charming tram to the east and you’ll find trendy bars, vintage stores and massive parks in Causeway Bay and Wan Chai. Head west and art galleries and foodie finds abound in Sheung Wan and Sai Ying Pun. Head south for laid back vibes and beachfront restaurants in Shek O, Repulse Bay and Stanley.
