When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are
wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants
dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed?
Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully
restored historical buildings and even a green oasis
of botanical gardens.
