48 Hours in Hong Kong City Guide, Hong Kong, Hong Kong (B)

Get ready to eat, shop, and sight-see your way to a standstill from the moment your flight lands. Read my 48-hour Hong Kong city guide to find out how to make the most of two nights and two days exploring this crowded scrap of land off the edge of China on a short break or stopover.

Eating experiences can make or break a holiday, and food is certainly one of the top reasons to visit Hong Kong. The city is famed for its culinary delights and my advice is to base yourself in Tsim Tsam Tshui if you want international cuisine on Kowloon.

Hillwood and Austin Roads also have many excellent eateries, while SoHo is full of chic clubs and restaurants.

I can highly recommend the Sweet Dynasty on Canton Road, a stylish eating hall popular with groups of young people stopping by for dessert on a night out. Try the Asian porridge ‘congee,’ following a savoury dish, all washed down with delectable fresh coconut juice with red bean. ......
