City Guides: Hong Kong - Emma Royall
Group Director, Digital Marketing & Communications at FWD Group Management Holdings gives us her tips on Hong Kong.
Best hotel for business?
Mandarin Oriental is my favourite hotel in Hong Kong full stop. The attention to detail and customer experience is perfect. MO caters for Hong Kong visitors and business people hence you’ll see a daily hubbub of male and female suits chatting about profits and losses over coffee.
Best hotel for pleasure?
The Grand Hyatt pool area is heaven and they do an amazing weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday by the pool – stunning Grill and salad bar with great free-flow package. Pay 550HKD to sit by the pool all day and pretend you’re one of the guests. The brunch package is on top of this.
Best bar for celebrating?
Sevva – it feels expensive, it is expensive, the views are to die for and if you want somewhere ‘special’ to celebrate this is definitely it.
Best bar for a business drink?
The Captains Bar in the Mandarin Oriental as long as it’s not after 6pm on a Friday night.
Best restaurant for business lunch?
Not something I do very often so probably not for me to answer!
Best way to spend an hour in-between meetings?
Have a pootle around IFC or have a cheeky foot massage at Happy Foot on Lyndhurst Terrace.
Best restaurant for dinner?
If you’re in the mood to splash some cash then the Mandarin Grill hands down for me. For a reasonably sized bill, Aberdeen Street Social hits the spot for me as does Oonami in Kennedy Town (my favourite Japanese in Hong Kong).
If you only have time to one thing in my city, then do this...
Eat Dim Sum.
