Would like to experience Hong Kong from a new perspective? You're an Art Collector, a Chocoholic or interested in Architecture? Hong Kong has a lot to offer - whatever you are interested in - you will most probably find it here. Hong has a talent to reinvent itself. Within the last years, the city has become Asia's hub for Art and wine trading. The next big goal is to become "Asia's Broadway". The West Kowloon Cultural District is under development and in the future it will become the place to visit all kind of cultural performances.
Let me know what you are interested and I will create a custom made itinerary. Visit a winery in the south of Hong Kong Island, stroll though Galleries or even visit the atelier and meet local upcoming artists? Or have a chocolate tasting with one of the local Chocolate makers? See the landmark buildings of the world most famous architects? This is just a choice.

Estimated Local Cash Needed
250 HK $ - Cash expenses will cover basic transport, food and shopping. Most shops and restaurants accept credit cards but many local markets and smaller local restaurants are cash only. Taxi fares are affordable. The first 2 km are charged at 22 HKD (3 US $). The restaurant bills include 10% service charge. So you are not expected to pay tips. Of course, depending on your personal preferences your cash need may vary. There are ATM machines in many places where you can get cash via your ATM or credit card.
Please note that food, drinks, souvenirs, transport cost are not included.Entrance fees (if any) into museums, parks etc. are not covered as well. These costs are usually minimal and in many cases free
Public transport includes taxi's, buses, mini buses, ferries, trams, The Peak Tram, The MTR , Airport Express etc.. The prices are very moderate.
One of the best and most convenient things Hong Kong has to offer is the OCTOPUS CARD. This is a cash card which will cost 150 HK$ including a refundable deposit of 50 HK$. This card can be used for any public transport (except Taxi's) and pay at Convenience stores like SevenEleven and Circle K, Supermarkets, Starbucks, Pacific Coffee, McDonalds etc. This will save you a lot of time and hassle in carrying coins or buying single tickets for the MTR etc.
I have no private car in Hong Kong, but I can arrange for a limousine or mini van and a local driver.
