ARMANI/aqua Lounge come to Hong Kong | Hong Kong, Kowloon | Two of my absolute favorite brands have joined forces to create and even more spectacular space in Honk Kong. Thanks to the expert recommendation of my local friend James Gannaban, I had the pleasure to visit this exciting Lounge/Restaurant in Hong Kong, which seems taken out of a futuristic movie. But it seems I will need to come back and revisit since ARMANI is partnering with AQUA to create Armani/Aqua a refined restaurant where Giorgio Armani’s elegance meets the contemporary interior design of the eponymous flagship aqua restaurant at One Peking in Hong Kong. Photo above is the exact same table I share that evening with my friend James, while I was fully mesmerized by the fantastic panoramic views of the Hong Kong bay.
The Langham Hotel Hong Kong | Kowloon, Tsimshatsui, Hong Kong | The Langham Hong Kong, was my first stay ever at this amazing destination that completely blew me away. And I have to say that for the time I stayed with them, I truly felt I was at home. The services, their staff and the overall experience, made me feel so comfortable and welcome that I would definitely come over again. Located in the area of Tsimshatsui at Kowloon Island, liveliest and most popular area of the city with an outstanding choice of shopping and entertainment. Only meters away from the waterfront, The Peninsula Hotel. Also very conveniently located to subways, shopping areas and one of my favorites the Fish/Flower/Jade/Birds Markets, which will transport you back in time to the old times of Hong Kong. Photo above is Edward Ma – Chief Concierge and 1st. Vice President of Les Clefs d’Or of Hong Kong and myself.

It is a distinctly Scandinavian haven in the bustling heart of Asia. It remains the only Nordic restaurant in the entire Pearl River Delta.
Favorite Street Markets of Kowloon Hong Kong | Kowloon, Hong Kong | Day and night Hong Kong, like most cosmopolitan cities around the globe never stops. What I like about Kowloon, compared to Hong Kong Island is that there you can still have the old and traditional experience true to their Asian heritage. Of course you see a huge British influence around, but this markets are all you may expect to find and more…
