Hong Kong is a territory in perpetual re-invention. The fishing village colonised by the British in the early 19th century has long led Asia and the world in modern architecture - notably of the skyscraper variety. But this is not enough. With mainland Chinese cities going more Flash Gordon with their skylines than Hong Kong, the city has upped the ante and re-emerged as China's capital of cool. Several bars and restaurants with stunning contemporary interiors and drop-dead urban panoramas are dishing up credible international cuisine; hotels are making it on to the glossy magazines' hippest hot lists; and the government is spending more on the arts and the city's biggest natural asset: Victoria Harbour, whose promenades are finally no longer neglected wasteland. Written by journalists witnessing these transformations, the Time Out Hong Kong city guide is the best insider guide to China's most exciting city and environs. *Sightseeing in Hong Kong *Hong Kong hotels *Hong Kong restaurants *Hong Kong bars *Hong Kong shops *Hong Kong mapsshow more

About Time Out Guides Ltd.

Founded in 1968, Time Out has grown from humble beginnings into the leading resource for anyone wanting to know what's happening in the world's greatest cities. Alongside our influential weeklies in London, New York, Chicago and Dubai, we publish more than 20 magazines in cities as varied as Beijing and Beirut; a range of travel books, with City Guides now joined by pocket-sized Shortlist series; and an information-packed website. The company remains proudly independent, still owned by Tony Elliott four decades after he launched Time Out London. Written by local experts, and illustrated with original photography, our books also retain their independence. No business has been featured because it has advertised, and all restaurants and bars are visited and reviewed anonymously.show more
