The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals their favourite places in each city they 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, neighbourhood walks to get you away from the crowds and their favourite places to eat everything be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
Vertigo-inducing skyscrapers that cling to mountainous slopes and busy fishing villages that proudly hold on to their cultural heritage: Hong Kong is more diverse than you’d imagine. This city can appear to be a collection of concrete high–rises but you are rarely further than a short taxi ride from verdant hikes. The mix of high and low will charm even the most hardened urban travellers.
