About Hong Kong

Hong Kong is an administrative region in south China. The city has a market economy, which means that it is built on international trades, and as a result it is one of the world's leading financial centers. Every year Hong Kong attracts a lot of tourists, with shopping, the British-Chinese culture, proximity to the sea and the skyscrapers as the main attractions. In the past, many went to Hong Kong to buy the latest in electronics at the best prices, but this has evened out a lot recently.

Food, drink and party on rooftop bars in Hong Kong

Hong Kong prides itself as a city with rooftop bars that are fantastic both in terms of party, food and drinks. A big thing here is to go for Sunday-brunch on the roof terraces. Often, you pay a fixed sum and may then eat and drink everything you want for a few hours. A very popular concept. Here one can drink champagne, beer, wine and fantastic cocktails. The food that is served are often Asian cuisine, both classic and in a more modern way. But it is also quite common that you can order meat dishes as well. There are even steakhouses located a hundred meters up on some rooftop bars in HK.

Alltitude and views from the rooftop bars in HK

Hong Kong is, like many other big cities in Asia, fantastic in terms of the height and the view from the rooftop bars. It has the world's highest rooftop bar, Ozone at the Ritz Carlton, located at a height of 490 meters up on the 118th floor. However, many other rooftop bars in HK can boast of fine and high altitudes. The view from most of the roof terraces in Hong Kong is out over the harbor and city skyline. But some have more views of city skyscrapers or mountains that are a little behind the city center.

Other attractions in Hong Kong

Hong Kong as a city has a lot to offer - both for tourists and people on business trips. For the shopaholics, this is heaven. Here you can buy virtually anything - and most of it at a very good price. This applies primarily to the electronics which have very good price and quality in comparison with the West. For those who like impressive views without having to visit a rooftop bar, you can go to Victoria Peak where many tourists flock to get a nice overview of the entire Hong Kong. Unexpectedly, there is also a Disneyland here, situated out on Lantau Island.

Rooftop pools in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is like many other Asian cities very good when it comes to rooftop bars. Despite the enormous range of good rooftops, there are not that many rooftop swimming pools here. Some of the city's luxury hotels have swimming pool on the roof, but that is not usual. As usual, it is the hotels that offer rooftop swimming pools and there are those that are suitable for both relaxations in the day and a little more party in the evenings. A good mix for those who want the best of both worlds. Book a hotel with us and make sure to take advantage of one of Hong Kong's rooftop swimming pools. Daytime it’s only the hotel guests may use the rooftop pools.

Flights and hotels in Hong Kong

Again, as for many other cities in Asia, Hong Kong is a real hub for incoming flights from all over the world. In the past, they had the great advantage of Hong Kong's airport – it was located right in the city center of town. Now it's moved a bit outside the city, which means that it takes a little while to get here by taxi and train. Hong Kong often ranks as one of the world's most important trade and economic cities. And the amount of business travels and tourist trips that go here every week has created a wide selection of hotels. Both luxury and budget. The more luxurious hotels in Hong Kong often have mighty rooftop bars. Book a hotel with us and get the best prices and deals on the market.
