Hong Kong is one of my favorite places on earth and I try to visit at least once a year. I love the fast-paced lifestyle, combined with a timeless ancient Asian element. I find the city fascinating and also love the beaches and natural landscape that can be found within an hour of the craziness of Central or Kowloon.

As with my other trips, I will be flying Cathay Pacific and staying at the Kowloon Shangri-La and the Island Shangri-La. I’ll be experiencing Cathay Pacific Business Class one way and their Premium Economy service between LAX and HKG. I’ll be reporting back and filming my experiences. I fly with them frequently and am constantly impressed by the overall experience. The service, luxury, food, amenities, lounges, everything is always on-point.

I will be returning to the only places I will stay in Hong Kong, the two incredible Shangri-La properties there. With the Island Shangri-La perched atop one of the city’s best malls in the Admiralty area of Central and the Kowloon Shangri-La looking back at the ISL from across Victoria Harbour, you get the best of both sides of the city.

The personal service guests receive at all Shangri-La hotels is truly amazing and wonderful to experience. More than a hotel stay, I find it’s like living in a luxury residence, with staff who quickly get to know you and your wants and needs.

I will be in Hong Kong from October 27 through November 2. Do you have a suggestion about something I should see, do or eat? Email me, fred (at) luxuryfred (dot) com.
