Is Hong Kong one of the world's best places to live? II

My favourite spots of Hong Kong sightseeing

Cococabana serves wonderful Mediterranean food on Deep Water Bay beach - ideal for a long, lazy and delicious lunch or dinner.

The cheapest and most impressive view of Hong Kong is from the Star Ferry which crosses the harbour from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island and costs approximately 20p a trip. The iconic Hong Kong skyline never fails to impress and shows off the constant development of this ever-changing city.

Lunch on the IFC Terrace, with views of The Peak and harbour. A perfect spot for sunbathing during lunch, whilst grabbing a sarnie or salad with friends.

Hiking across Dragon’s Back and down onto Shek O beach before downing cold beers and eating at the local alfresco Chinese and Thai Seafood restaurant.

Feather Boa is a super chilled bar with a great lounge atmosphere. I always recommend trying the strawberry daiquiri: only one though as they are so strong!

Happy Foot for a spot of reflexology after a long day. A cheap and cheerful traditional Chinese foot pampering parlour.

Taking a friend for a game of ping pong at Tazmanian Ballroom on Tuesdays – this plush and welcoming bar is perfect for early evening drinks on a colder evening.

Dragon-I for its all-you-can-eat HKD 150 dim sum lunches but also, more importantly, the nightclub in the evenings.

Favourite spots in Asia-Pacific

Macau. Go see House of Dancing Water included in your Hong Kong tour packages – a spectacular production by Franco Dragone featuring a dive pool for the stunts.

Beijing. Just jump on a plane, and explore the local hutongs. Stay at The Opposite House, a perfect weekend getaway where you can soak up some of the culture in the art district.

Four Seasons Tented Camp in Chiang Rai, Thailand, which overlooks the bamboo forests of the Golden Triangle and the Mekong. You can watch the view while wallowing in the copper bathtubs, after a day of training the camp’s elephants.

Soaking up the rays on the private island of Amanpulo and swimming with the sea turtles in the Philippines. A slice of paradise.
