Continuing its run of travel guides with German published Gestalten, “Monocle” launch a fresh film offering a taste of what to expect from this latest printed journal. Hong Kong our next destination, the book explores both the traditional and fiercely modern faces of this fast-paced city. Aimed at the modern traveller hoping to uncover the unique and unusual spots often over looked by well-known city guides, retail, restaurants, sport and design are placed under the spotlight. Expect to find the best in traditional Chinese and European street food, scenic hikes, independent stores, contemporary art, open spaces and underground bars. “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.” Grab a copy at the Monocle website and get planning.
