“It’s An Intoxicating Place – Spectacular, Exotic And Accessible. If You’re Visiting For Business, You’ll Find Pleasure Sneaks Up On You. If You’re Visiting For Pleasure, There’s No Shortage Of Locals Who Make It Their Business To Please.”

The third edition of Lonely Planet Hong Kong Encounter features:
»» Hong Kong’s secrets, revealed by local experts: from Caprice chef Sherman Chan’s favourite restaurants to Macanese architect Carlos Marreiros on Macau’s most striking buildings.
»» Recommendations of the very best neighbourhoods, sights, restaurants, shops and entertainment from Lonely Planet author and Hong Kong resident Piera Chen.
»» Unique itineraries and must-see highlights to help visitors make the most of a short break.
»» A full-colour pull-out map, as well as detailed neighbourhood maps, for easy navigation.
Encounter Guides help travellers get to the heart of a destination in half the time. Encounters are less about accommodation and more about neighbourhoods; less about advance planning and more about diving in - past the tourist bureaus and straight to the locals’ latest favourites.
What will your Hong Kong Encounter be?
»» Taking in the soaring skyline views from the Bank of China Tower’s 43rd floor;
»» Getting lost among the trinkets and swallows’ nests of Sheung Wan’s winding alleyways;
»» Bargain hunting and window-shopping in Soho’s designer boutiques;
»» Devouring steaming baskets of dumplings at the cacophonous City Hall Maxim’s Palace;
»» Pressing your luck at the craps tables of Macau’s impossibly glitzy casinos;
»» Gossiping over dainty cakes and oolong tea at the Peninsula Hotel.
Encounters are part of Lonely Planet’s evolving portfolio of guides for every type of trip and every type of traveller. These also include Country Guides (exploring every corner of a country), Shoestring Guides (budget travel), Multi-Country Guides (spanning a clutch of connected countries), City Guides (for extended time in one city), Regional Guides (for in-depth trips into a country’s diverse regions), and Discover Guides (full-colour and highlights-based).
