Where vibrant and modern meets classic and colonial, where the pleasures of the east come together like the harmony of the yin and yang, where of one of Asia’s most important financial centres overlooks the hustle and bustle Hong Kong’s street markets. Part sophisticated metropolis, part cultural epicentre and a total feast for the senses; you’ll find it all in Hong Kong. West Kowloon provides a getaway to the rest of Hong Kong as it sits comfortably amid the city’s most happening nightlife, historical art districts and intriguing heritage sites and the International Commerce Centre, the third tallest building in the world; all of this just steps away from the majestic waterfront icon, the W Hong Kong.
A stone’s throw away from W Hong Kong is perhaps the city’s most lavish lifestyle shopping mall: Elements at Kowloon Station. The highest indoor observation deck in Hong Kong, sky100, which is connected to the hotel, is the place where you can soar high above the city on the 100th floor of the tallest building in town.
With a striking view of the waterfront boulevard, a city skyline provides the backdrop for a gastronomic adventure as you explore the al fresco restaurants. When you venture beyond the hotel’s Union Square neighborhood you’re only moments away from the legendary Tsimshatsui area, where Nathan and Canton Road’s “golden mile of shopping” awaits you.
You’ll also find Kowloon Park, the Avenue of Stars, the famous Star Ferry Pier, the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and Temple Street, all of which exude legendary charm and world-class specialty cuisine. The main Central district sits across the waterfront and is easily accessible via ferry; here you’ll discover architectural wonders such as the HSBC and Bank of China buildings, symbols of China’s success. It doesn’t stop there, global entertainment hotspots of Lan Kwai Fong and SoHo in the spirit of Bourbon Street, Shibuya, the namesake SoHo Square and New York’s Meatpacking District.
Or you can always choose to explore what lies beyond the glimmer of the city’s neon lights. You’ll encounter sampans, Chinese junks and a massive floating restaurant in the former fishing village of Aberdeen that offers glimpse of Hong Kong’s yesteryear. Then head to Stanley Market and relax on the beach. A picturesque seaside stroll across the promenade and twisted bazaar streets are where you’ll discover and unimaginable variety of wares for sale.
In a city that Fortune 500 and blue chip companies call home, why not mix business and pleasure? After all, it’s easy to find the perfect balance between glitz and glamour in the city that never sleeps.
