Hong Kong's beating heart
Hong Kong Island holidays take you to the heart of the action in Hong Kong. Here you’ll find a spectacular skyline filled with towering skyscrapers and modern amenities, as well as thriving markets and a fascinating history. When it comes to downtime, there are golden sandy beaches to enjoy, a harbour where you can book boat trips and excursions, or Hong Kong’s main park which is full of pretty gardens.
Spend your days shopping until you drop in the upmarket designer shops which pepper the island, or picking up unique Japanese designs in the many boutiques. There are some fantastic rooftop bars where you can enjoy an exotic cocktail, bottle of fine wine or bubbly champagne as you take in the views. When it comes to dining, Hong Kong is home to some well-known restaurants where you can choose from international menus, or delicious traditional Chinese dishes. And if you want to visit markets and street side stalls, head to the nearby Kowloon area.
Your holiday in Hong Kong Island will centre around the rooftop. Its tall skyline is full of luxury hotels with amenities galore, rooftop bars and Michelin starred menus.
