The Star Ferry crossing from Victoria Harbour showcases the city's skyline. Skyscrapers glow in the afternoon sun and douse the sea in neon at night. The trip lasts 10 minutes. Ask the Concierge about longer voyages with more time to absorb the view.
Take a twilight stroll around the circular hike that rims Victoria Peak, Hong Kong's highest hill. You'll be swathed in cool night breezes as the sky and the South China Sea deepen to indigo and the city glimmers below in a kaleidoscope of electric light.
Pop-up beaches and pop-up boutiques, photography exhibitions and wine expos. Times Square shopping center, 3 minutes' walk from Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay, has it all. From Agnes B to Zara, and Gucci to Vivienne Westwood, luxury brands dominate.
Don't Go Home Without
Watching a race at Happy Valley Racecourse, 500 metres away. The season runs from September-June and is as much about revelry as it is about horseracing. When it's not raceday, peruse the course's interesting Hong Kong Jockey Club Archive and Museum.
The 100-year-old tram system is a handy combination of transport and instant sightseeing tour. Its carriages trundle through Central District, Western District, Causeway Bay and Wan Chai, and stop just outside Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay.
