Hong Kong - Small Tours around Your Location

Starting in Central at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel.   This hotel has some nice bars and a great restaurant, Vong.  It’s also a well known spot for taking afternoon tea. Across the street, connected by a bridge on the first floor, is the Prince’s Building.  Inside you’ll find some bookstores, furniture shops, and Oliver’s—the place to find imported, hard to find food items.  Across the street from the Prince’s Building is HSBC bank, a well known landmark.  If you turn right and walk a block you’ll come to The Landmark, a luxury mall with designer name brands.  Cross Pedder Street and and you’ll find Shanghi Tang (across from The Landmark) and the Pedder Building, which is full of small shops with great buys.  Exiting Shanghi Tang, turn right until you reach Queen’s Road Central (you’ll see a Marks and Spencers on the corner, across the street.)  Turn right again and walk a few blocks until you discover The Lanes on the right.  They’re little alleys full of bargains waiting to be found.

Or, instead of seeking out the lanes, cross Queens Road Central, turn right for 2 blocks.  Then turn left on D’Aguilar Street and you will be entering into Lan Kwai Fong, and area full of amazing restaurants and bars, many of which are not on the ground floor of the building, so go inside and see what restaurants there are.  Continuing up the road, you’ll come out at Hollywood road.  If you turn right, you’ll find more interesting restaurants and a few furniture stores.  Left will lead you to more antique stores.  (Be careful of buying antiques here in Hong Kong since if the wood wasn’t treated correctly, it may crack in a less humid environment.)

Small Tour around Admiralty
Beginning at Pacific Place you can either go through the mall, or follow the signs (near the escalator by Sogo on the 2nd floor) to the Park that sits behind Pacific Place.  The park is a lovely spot to walk through and even has a great aviary that is free.  Across the street from Pacific Place is Queensway Plaza and the United Centre, where you can find the Vehicle Registration Centre.   From Pacific Place, if you turn right and start to walk you will head into Wanchai.  There are lots of small shops that are worth checking out in this area.
