Getting a new and memorable view of dynamic Hong Kong

Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong

Jan 8, 2020

This electric city—with its beloved mix of good eats, commerce, history, culture and nature—has been centered on the sea for centuries. Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong offers an easy access, upscale stay where there are seriously no bad views.

SEE+DO

Bustling Chun Yeung Street is the place to go to time-travel into the Hong Kong of yore. Tram lines bisect this narrow market road filled with old tenement buildings and stalls selling all manner of food. If that quaintness isn’t photogenic enough, keep those likes coming with a few snaps at the so-called Monster Building. One of Hong Kong’s most Instagrammed spots is five connecting high-rises where the city’s density overtakes you. Take in an enthralling Cantonese opera show at the landmark Sunbeam Theatre, founded by Shanghainese émigrés in 1972.

SHOP

For out-of-the-ordinary souvenirs with a true local flavour, gifts that will bring back a flood of memories, and, indeed, unforgettable shopping experiences, visit Wah Fung Chinese Goods Centre, once Hong Kong’s largest department store, where you’ll be hard-pressed to hear any English but easily find unique buys. More modern shopaholics will be glad of the hotel’s proximity to the gleaming, upscale Harbour North megamall.

EAT+DRINK

Location, location, location! Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong is adjacent to the North Point Ferry pier in a city whose soul is steeped in the maritime. What better name for a restaurant than Cruise? Here the sharing plates are inspired by ports of call across Asia, and you’ll swoon for the paroramic water views. Meanwhile, in The Farmhouse, homemade farm-to-table fare provides comfort, and in The Farmhouse Deli, local street-food is deliciously reimagined.

STAY

It would be pretty hard for a hotel to better live up to its name than Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong, two towers that are together central to all things authentic to the city, energizing about a visit, and integral to smooth travel. All 665 of the modern, elegant guest rooms have insane harbour views—though if you really want to soak up your smart choice of staying here, head to the top-floor infinity pool. If you can tear yourself away from the social areas and eateries designed by star André Fu, a new waterfront promenade awaits.
