Start off your day with dimsum (small plates), a local mainstay. Dim Sum's menu is foreigner-friendly while retaining its authentic Cantonese flavor.
Happy Valley Racecourse 跑馬地馬場
After breakfast, head over to the Happy Valley racecourse and experience Hong Kong's passion for horseracing first-hand. The only legal gambling allowed in the enclave - place a bet and join in the fun.
Nan Lian Garden 南蓮園池
Leave behind Happy Valley for Diamond Hill's Nan Lian Garden. Modeled on 9th-century Tang Dynasty designs, this 350,000 square foot park comes complete with giant Buddhas and Song Cha Xie, a traditional Chinese tea house that serves rare teas from all across China.
Causeway Bay 銅鑼灣
Head back into the city and brave the crowds in Causeway Bay to experience Hong Kong's famed shopping experience in upscale malls like Lane Crawford and Times Square.
For a little colonial-era flavor, head over to The Pawn in the vibrant Wan Chai neighborhood. Housed in a converted pawnhouse building from the 1800s, this British gastropub is a great place to relax over cocktails.
Yung Kee Restaurant 鏞記酒家
Load up for the night ahead with Yung Kee's famous roast meats. When was the last time you had a Michelin-starred Peking Duck?
End the night with some non-stop dancing in Dragon-I. Located in Lan Kwai Fong, this is Hong Kong's party strip with plenty of bars and clubs for every type of music and drink.
