Hong Kong takes experiences to new heights

From the big wheel to a Spanish-influenced gin house, C&IT showcases Hong Kong's latest offerings.

Ferris Wheel: In September, the Central Harbourfront in Hong Kong will welcome a playful new addition to its skyline- a ferris wheel, billed as Hong Kong's answer to the London Eye. Operators of the Ferris wheel say they plan a soft opening in September to "build awareness", with an official launch later.

Ping Pong 129: The latest addition to up-and-coming Hong Kong neighborhood Sai Ying Pun, is Ping Pong 129, a Spanish Ginoteria. Once a ping-pong hall, Ping Pong 129 retains much of its original features with flair, boasting retro Hong Kong windows and neon signs as well as an extensive drinks menu with 40 gins from around the world and another 10 to 12 gins from craft distilleries within Spain. Each G&T is paired with a different garnish and tonic and the venue can be hired for private events. 

Island East Markets:Hong Kong is famed for its many markets and April marked the return to Hong Kong of the Island East Markets. This buzzing farmers’ market offers up artisanal cookery and handcrafted goods courtesy of Hong Kong’s most entrepreneurial foodies and crafters, and is held every Sunday at Island East, Quarry Bay. 

Ritz Cartlon bar concept: The Ritz-Carlton’s Lounge & Bar launched its ‘Exclusive 12’ concept in April. In celebration of Baccarat’s 250th anniversary, award-winning mixologist Lewis Tsang has developed the 'Cocktails in Baccarat’ collection which will be paired with a selection of premium bar counter snacks for 12 special guests. The Lounge & Bar located on Level 102 of the highest hotel in the world features floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing sensational views of the Hong Kong skyline. The 12 luxurious leather seats are around the ornate carved bar counter in the centre.
