A procession through Hong Kong's outposts of good food, design, retail, and more, this definitive travel guide will make you feel like a local no matter where you are from. Vertigo-inducing skyscrapers that cling to mountainous slopes and busy fishing villages that proudly hold on to their cultural heritage: Hong Kong is more diverse than you'd imagine. Navigate the futuristic covered skyways connecting office towers and you'll pass over temples from which incense smoke trails towards the heavens. This city can appear to be an impenetrable collection of concrete high-rises, but you are rarely further than a short taxi ride from verdant hikes. The mix of high and low will charm the most hardened urban travellers. Monocle's Hong Kong takes you on a fresh journey from the best dining spots to side-street food stalls. The Monocle team will also show you where to head for rich retail experiences and handmade shoes and shirts. Then there are walks to take you away from the hustle and bustle of Central into plant-filled streets where the din of the city disappears. Hong Kong may have been built on trade and commerce but it's now also a place where contemporary art thrives. It's a global hub that welcomes visitors. You should be next.
