If you’re in Hong Kong for a few hours, there are few things that you need to do to create an awesome stopover, says Conde Nast Traveller.
Number one, drink gin in a former ping-pong hall.
“Easy to miss on a sleepy street in Sai Ying Pun, Ping Pong 129 is Hong Kong's ultimate hipster hangout,” says Emma Russell.
You can also take in Hong Kong’s best rooftop bar.
“Twenty-five floors up and in the heart of Central is Sevva, the chic al fresco bar with the best seats in the city for the 'Symphony of Lights' laser show, which happens every evening after dark,” writes Russell.
Another must-do and something that can be done during a stopover is sailing Victoria Harbor in a Junk.
“A Hong Kong icon, the AQUA LUNA is one of the few remaining traditional red-sailed Chinese junk boats in the world,” Russell suggests.
She also notes that the junk is a floating bar where guests can imbibe champagne while taking in the harbor.
For the truly off the wall, try the Empty Gallery.
“Emerging from an industrial-lift into a pitch-black hallway could be the stuff of nightmares. But the Empty Gallery in Aberdeen is Stephen Cheng's brainchild and it is utterly unique,” says Russell.
