YOUR INSPIRATION TO EXPLORE THE WORLD

Hong Kong Restaurants

Abigail Hanley, Staff Writer

Salisterra Hong Kong

Maybe it’s because we got sucked into Nicole Kidman’s new series Expats. Or maybe it’s because just mentioning Hong Kong makes us want a dumpling. Whatever the reason, Hong Kong deserves a visit this year. This is where to eat in Hong Kong now, along with a pocket guide of where you want to be on your next visit.

Overview

There’s no shortage of reasons to visit Hong Kong. If you’re looking for top food, beautiful beaches and some of the best shopping in the world, then Hong Kong is for you. In fact, Hong Kong has more Michelin-starred restaurants than NYC nowadays. So we would go as far as to say that any foodie should experience Hong Kong’s vibrant culture at least once.  Like all our recommendations at Galavante, our list of Hong Kong restaurants and the pocket guide of the city comes from the locals. This list was extra special as it comes from our Contributing Co-Founder and Hong Kong resident Sharmala Murat. So you know this guide to Hong Kong is going to be extra good.

Sights to See

The Peak Tram

The Peak

The Peak attracts around seven million visitors per year, and for good reason. It’s the place to see the best views in all of Hong Kong, and get some shopping done while you’re at it. After taking The Peak tram, you can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city while learning about Hong Kong’s rich culture firsthand. The tram drives along one of the oldest railways in the world and rises to about 1300 feet above sea level, making for an unforgettable trip. After all, it’s more about the journey than the destination.
