How to Have a Spectacular Day in Hong Kong

We asked Louis Baleros, concierge of the InterContinental Hong Kong, to plan us a special, singular day in Hong Kong…

Explore Hong Kong by air, land, and sea in one day. Start by chartering a helicopter for a 45-minute sightseeing trip for the best views of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and the outer islands.

Then hire our hotel’s classic Rolls-Royce Phantom VI for a drive to the Verandah, a classic colonial-style restaurant at the Repulse Bay Complex, for lunch.
