Previously regarded as a little seedy, present-day Wan Chai is a fashionable enclave just five minutes by MTR from Central.

Tucked away in secluded Big Wave Bay, this cosy beach house is just 100 metres from Hong Kong’s best surf.

Best for nature lovers on South Lantau
Image 6 of 10
It may be famed for its skyscrapers and high-density living but less than 25 per cent of Hong Kong’s land area is built up. Lantau Island, for example, has plenty of green space, mountains, forests, beaches and country parks to explore so this stylish two-bedroom village home on South Lantau is ideal for nature-loving families. Swim in rock pools, spot wild buffalo on the lush trails and build sandcastles before cooking up a rooftop barbecue served with a side order of spectacular sunset.
Best for spacious, old-world style in Stanley

However, visiting families like to come here for another reason – Ocean Park Hong Kong.
