To minimize travel time, what would be better than a room in a 5-star hotel right above the best malls in Hong Kong?
Both the Elements Mall in Tsim Sha Tsui and the IFC Mall in Central are reached via the Airport Express MTR in half an hour. Both malls are in central convenient locations near the best malls and boutiques for specific types of products.
Have breakfast and start the day right. We suggest a French-style breakfast at a restaurant famous for its pastries: Le Goûter Bernardaud (Shop 2028-2029) opens at 8 am.
Head over to the nearby Landmark Mall and boutique cluster about 200 meters east and south of Central Station. These are in four buildings that are interlinked by pedestrian walkways.
The Landmark is a shopping complex that has top women's fashions: Gucci, Tiffany & Co., Polo, Marc Jacobs, Paul Smith, Vivienne Tam, and many others.
The interlinked Prince's Building has Chanel, a. testoni, Cartier, and Ralph Lauren. Alexandra House has Prada and Dolce & Gabbana. The Chater House closest to the IFC has Armani shops.
Transport: Walk to the Landmark cluster via Central Station through the pedestrian underpasses. Take Exit E for Chater House or Exit H for Alexandra House.
The ICC Tower has the most modern features to enjoy during your shopping tour. The 5-star Ritz Carlton on the top floors has luxurious restaurants with stunning views for your lunch or tea.
The shopping attraction is the Elements Mall below the ICC Tower. It is five minutes from Hong Kong Station below the IFC Mall to Kowloon Station under the Elements Mall. Just take the escalator up.
The Elements Mall has five sections: Wood, Water, Metal, Fire, Earth. These correspond to the 5 elements of Chinese Daoist philosophy and provide different kinds of goods or services. The emphasis is that you can find basically almost anything.
Ozone on the top floor of the Ritz is the world's highest pool and lounge (118th floor). If you prefer Japanese cuisine, the Inakaya (101st floor) has some internationally recognized fine food and the view of Hong Kong and the mountains.
The 1881 Heritage nearby is known for its watch and jewelry stores, colonial architecture and landscaping. It was once an imposing British military headquarters. You'll find Rolex and Tudor, IWC Schaffhausen, Cartier, Vacheron Constantin and other luxury watch brands. Jewelers include Tiffany & Co and Van Cleef & Arpels.
The very rich Peninsula Hotel is known for fashion. You'll find Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior, and Prada. It is about 200 meters from the Heritage on Salisbury Road.
The K11 is billed as the world's first art mall and is artistically decorated with small art exhibitions. It is below the Hyatt Regency about 400 meters from the Heritage.
Transport from the ICC to 1881 Heritage by taxi takes 10 minutes. The ICC has a taxi waiting room.
Have a superb dinner at the Four Seasons, the 60-story hotel on Victoria Harbor. What makes the hotel a highlight in the culinary world are the 3-Michelin-Star Caprice and the Lung King Heen with their lighted Victoria Harbor views.
According to the Michelin guide, these are the finest Cantonese and French restaurants in Hong Kong.
3 Michelin stars is an honor. The entire U.S. only has ten Michelin 3-star restaurants in 2012. Hong Kong has only one other.
Watch the relaxing harbor view as the ships float by and the Hong Kong Symphony of Lights at 8 pm.
