Stunning views in City Guide Hong Kong

Hong Kong is famed for its breathtaking skyline, world-class shopping, and a wide variety of restaurants that diners can choose from. If you’d like to experience this vibrant city, you can fly direct to Hong Kong from Copenhagen on SAS.

A room with a view

The world’s highest rooftop bar, Ozone, is located on the 118th floor of the luxurious Ritz-Carlton hotel, which occupies the top 16 floors of the International Commerce Centre building, the 10th tallest building in the world. That’s a lot of information but remember: the views from the roof terrace across Hong Kong and its surroundings are nothing short of stunning.

Back to school

The school canteen just got a whole lot trendier. From its notebook menus to schoolroom decorations, Gakuensai serves up excellent Japanese and Korean fare alongside a healthy dose of nostalgia. After you eat, get up, move around and maybe sing a song.

Lofty classic

Established in 1928, the legendary Peninsula is Hong Kong’s oldest hotel and something of a landmark in Tsim Sha Tsui. Dubbed the “Grande Dame of the Far East”, it’s also notable for its large fleet of Rolls-Royces and the twin helipads used for the hotel’s own helicopter service.

Icy fun

Hong Kong never sees snow or ice in nature but escaping from the city’s humidity is as easy as visiting one of the city’s indoor skating rinks. Try The Rink, where you pay for the length of time you rent your skates.
