The Hong Kong guide comes in at 148 pages, is printed on great stock and has a hardback cover. Written by the Monocle team in the city, this is a book that takes in all the speed and dynamism of this pulsating commercial hub but also leads you down alleyways to hard-to-find cocktail bars and small design ateliers. Hong Kong has been hard to get to know properly – until now.
The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals their favourite places in each city we cover, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighborhood walks to get you away from the crowds and their favourite places to eat everything be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
