INSIDER'S GUIDE TO HONG KONG

From the day she signed her first contract in Hong Kong, Chinese It Girl Chen Ran has kept the city close to her heart. When she’s not away shooting on location or flying out for fashion week, she's hiking through the Mid-Levels to the top of The Peak or enjoying a casual meal with her friends at one of the many tea restaurants in town. “Hong Kong is my favorite place in the world,” the actress and model says. “You can travel from one continent to another simply by crossing the street.”

Discover Chen Ran’s Personal Guide To Hong Kong

A CITY OF GLOBAL WONDERS

A city of many contradictions, Hong Kong is perhaps best summed up by its dynamism, a quality that locals, expats and its visitors find undeniably addictive. Experience the buzz and be absorbed in Asia’s culture clashing hub with hidden gems in every nook and cranny. Here, a dead-end cobblestone street may lead to an underground world light years ahead of the rest. Amid the waves of rain, bustling streets and skyscraper-filled surroundings, the heart of Hong Kong lies in its everlasting desire for experience.

WHAT TO PACK

Storm-Proof Umbrella: The tropical climate can be unpredictable, with sunny mornings giving way to torrential showers. Always step out with an umbrella in tow.

Breathable Layers: From sweltering heat waves to arctic-level air conditioning, slip on breathable cottons, light linens and silk wonders to transition between the polar climates.

The Business Essential: The 21st century meeting of the minds requires one to have business cards at the ready. Give and receive with both hands and your name facing towards the recipient.

FIVE ESSENTIAL PHRASES

M̀h gòi: This serves as both please and thank you in Cantonese. As a beginner this should be enough, but for more advanced speakers, “dòjeh” is properly thanks for a gift, while “m̀h gòi” is for a service rendered.

Ho sihk: Delicious! This is for food only, for beverages, the phrase is “ho yum”. 

Néih hóu?: Hello. Literally, “you’re well?”, this is rhetorical, with the usual response simply to parrot the greeting in return. 

Aiya!: An expression of pain, shock or frustration – flexible and satisfying. 

TIPS FROM A LOCAL

Octopus Card: Pop down to the MTR (Hong Kong’s metro system) and purchase an Octopus Card which will allow you to pay for meals and snacks outside of the system (like 7-11, chain stores and more) without having to carry cash or coins.

Hailing The Right Cab: While flagging a cab may take you from A to B, one must make a wave motion (like a diving dolphin) in order to cross the harbor.

Service Fees: Tips for good service are always appreciated but note many establishments include a small service fee of 10%.
