Cash Warren picks his favorite restaurants, hotels, and bars to go to when visiting Hong Kong.
When Cash Warren let us know that he and his Pair of Thieves partners were headed to Hong Kong, we knew we had to get him to find the best places to go in the city. After a stunning drive from Shenzen to Hong Kong, the guys landed at their hotel and went on to discover some of Hong Kong’s best places to eat, drink, and stay. Check out the 10 things Cash won’t travel without here.
We drove to Hong Kong from Shenzhen, in southeastern China. Hong Kong first came into view while on the Western Harbor Crossing and I was immediately in awe of the beauty. The mountains, water and densely constructed high rise buildings seem to fit together like a perfect symphony.
We stayed at Hotel LKF in the Lan Kwai Fong district. I’d recommend staying at this hotel if you’re looking for a modern interpretation of the traditional experience. Hotel LKF is also centrally located so it’s easy to get around and is very practical.
Here we are feeling nice and plump after a delicious meal at Fatty Crab HK. Fatty Crab is originally from NYC and serves Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian, Vietnamese and Singaporean cuisines but utilizes western cooking techniques. I highly advise giving it a try if you find yourself in HK or NYC.
Red Taxis aka Urban Taxis are beyond comfortable and serve all areas of New Territories, Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. In total, there are 3 different types of taxis that service the various districts but we only experienced the Red. The Toyota Crown Comfort is my new favorite car.
Lan Kwai Fong is located between Wyndham Street and D’Aguilar Street. There are over 80 restaurants and bars are spread in this narrow L-shaped lane making it one of the most famous bar streets in Hong Kong. Fun times.
Hong Kong is easily one of the most diverse cities I’ve had the fortune of visiting. Here we are on the famous Wing Wah Lane celebrating David’s fake birthday with some of our new friends.
Hong Kong has one of the most unique skylines in the world. With over 112 buildings that stand taller than 180 metres (591 ft), Hong Kong ranks first in the world in both skyscraper and high-rise count. The surrounding mountains and Victoria Harbor compliment these skyscrapers perfectly to create a truly pristine skyline.
