Batman diving off the IFC tower and Gywneth Paltrow trying to sweat her way through Hong Kong Airport; the city's glamorous cityscape and world famous landmarks have made it a popular film location.
We've picked six of our best films that have the streets of Hong Kong in the background - both local and foreign - with notes on some of the famous city locations used the film. We've even thrown in a bonus to our list - it's not a film but it does feature Hong Kong an give you the opportunity to drive its streets. Read our films in Hong Kong feature for the full feature.
We're not in Vegas any more. As the arrival of Hollywood casinos, such as the Venetian, and the development of the Cotai Strip tries to turn Macau into an Asian version of Las Vegas there's a couple of casinos that continue to peddle local style. One of those casinos is the Rio.
From its throwback neon advertising to the slightly dodgy frescoes that look they were painted by the owner's brother, there is a refreshing lack of sophistication to the Rio but bags of local character. Of course it's not to everyone's taste - the nightclub and sauna have all the wrong type of character. Read our Rio Macau review for the full lowdown.
Currently living under the spectre of the dreaded 'gentrification' that has stripped the best neighbourhoods around the world of their character and replaced it with cocktail bars and coffee shops, Sheung Wan is still one of Hong Kong's best destinations.
One of the most traditional neighbourhoods in Hong Kong it's winning mix of bare bones cha chaan tengs stills serving to the time pressed under pressure salesman and dried seafood stalls that waft the smell of traditional Chinese medicine onto the streets. Read our Sheung Wan tour and see it now before the coffee shops take over
We'd like you to read our review of Ngong Ping village but if you don't have time we feel so stringly about this place we'll tell you right now - don't bother visiting.
Set over a couple of hectacres across the top of the Lantau countryside what we have here is a classic tourist trap. From the time you're deposited off the Ngong Ping cable car - which is fantastic with breathtaking views over the area - you'll be shunted around a couple of lacklustre attractions used to justify a dozen overpriced shops. Use the cable car, skip the village and visit the big Buddha instead.
Our article calling for recommendations for the best Hong Kong tailor has been getting people hot under their lapel. After filtering out the almost daily spam from tailors themselves we've had more than fifty submissions - many of them have been negative.
Reports of suits that are never shipped and misleading deals are rife as are complaints about poor quality service. But how wide spread is the problem of cowboy tailors who promise much but deliver little? In Hong Kong tailors - how not to get ripped off we look at whether buying a suit in Hong Kong is still a good idea and good value and offer tips on how to avoid getting ripped off.
Chickens running around the plane and missing seat belts are just two of the more ridiculous statements I've heard about Chinese airlines. As China's airline industry booms and reaches further around the globe more people are flying with airlines they have never heard of - sometimes with trepidation.
We review China Eastern Airlines and look at the service - both on board and from customer service agents - including English language service, what to expect on the aircraft and complaints about delays. Read our full China Eastern Airlines report.
Often overlooked in favour of Shanghai and Beijing, Guangzhou may not offer the glitz and the glamour of China's capital and capital of culture but it is the symbol of a new China. It was here that the economic boom started and it is Guangzhou that continues to set the pace. The shiny skyscrapers, freshly tarmacked roads spilling through countryside and suited inhabitants are everything China aspires to - the city also has some great sights.
Hong Kong's weather is not something that many tourists worry about before booking their tickets; a quick look at the map suggests it's going to be somewhere between warm and hot - which is not far from the truth. What you do need to watch out for are the black rain storms and the flower wilting humidity, oh, and the typhoons.
Check out our guide to the Hong Kong climate to find out the best times to visit when to actively avoid.
Hyped but not hyperbole; the Hong Kong Sevens live up to the many superlatives thrown at them. The best rugby sevens tournament on the planet is also this serious city's play time and expect as much to be written about the drinking and the costumes as the snaking side steps and explosive runs on the pitch.
It's a brilliant tournament. If you don't have tickets, don't panic; there are always a few going spare from hawkers outside the stadium. Your best bet is the second day when the drinking has started taking its toll and groups will sell the spare ticket of their friend who couldn't crawl out of bed. You shouldn't, however, expect it to be cheap. There are also some fantastic bars to watch the games in, especially in Wan Chai, and in the tent near the ground. See our full guides below.
We've been trying to bring you the better and the best side of Kowloon for a while. No longer the ugly sister to Hong Kong Island's Cinderella, Kowloon is still often overlooked by tourists in the city for just a few days.
We've got a host of articles intended to send you straight to the heart of Kowloon and this month we bring you the best Kowloon restaurants. There's a lot to like and quite simply you must visit Spring Deer.
