Farewell to British Hong Kong: Resources

by Walter Glaser

The seasons are similar to those in parts of North America, cold and wet around Christmas and hot and muggy around August.

Getting There
Most European carriers fly to Hong Kong, as do most Asian ones. From North America, Cathay Pacific is an excellent carrier and United also offer excellent schedules and services.

Top Hotels
We rate The Peninsula, the Regent and Grand Hyatt as tops in Hong Kong. The others we have recommended in the text, Island Shangri-La, Ritz-Carlton, Conrad, Marriott, Holiday Inn and Omni are also outstanding,

Gaddi's -- exquisite French (at The Peninsula Hotel), Salisbury Road, Kowloon. Ph: (852) 236-6251

One Harbour Road -- impeccable Chinese (at the Grand Hyatt)
1 Harbour Road, Hong Kong
(852) 588-1234.

Yu -- brilliant seafood (at The Regent)

Ph: (852) 272-1211

Grissini -- Italian (at The Grand Hyatt)

Ph. (852) 588-1234

Cafe Deco Bar and Grill (at the Peak Galleria)

Felix -- state of the art California/Asian (at The Peninsula)

The discount stores, jeweler and shopping centers mentioned are my personal favorites. For electronics, cameras, etc. make sure that you take the exact model number and best prices at home with you to make sure that you are not over-paying.

If you have time for these, we recommend a harbor tour from the Kowloon Star Ferry Terminal, a tram tour of the Victoria side, and daytrip tours to Canton, the New Territories and the trip to the Pink River Dolphins that can now only be seen here and on the Amazon. The Hong Kong Tourist Office and your hotel desk can give you full details and latest prices.
