Travel Postcard: 48 hours in Hong Kong for festive fun
12 p.m. - After walking up an appetite, head to Luk Yu Teahouse for a dim sum feast. Stained glass windows, wooden paneling and dark ceiling fans evoke old Hong Kong. Try their steamed barbeque pork buns and shrimp dumplings.
3 p.m. - Check out Hong Kong's burgeoning art scene by visiting some of the galleries dotted along nearby Hollywood Road. Stop for coffee at gourmet café Classified or in the up and coming neighbourhood 'PoHo' in Sheung Wan district, which has quirky coffee places including Austrian café Loisl.
6 p.m. - Take the "ding ding" tram or the spotless underground mass transit railway (MTR) towards the Star Ferry pier. Enjoy a short ride on the trademark green and white vessel as you head towards the Kowloon peninsula.
Alighting at bustling Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, walk down the Avenue of Stars, modeled on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, where you can take a picture with a bronze statue of Bruce Lee.
8 p.m. - Dinner at Hutong where northern Chinese food is served in a minimalist setting designed to resemble Beijing's ancient courtyards and narrow alleys. Food is a tad on the spicy side, so be warned, but floor to ceiling window views of Hong Kong's neon skyline make it a must see even for the chili-shy.
11 p.m. - Have a drink at Ozone, the highest bar in the world, on the 118th floor of the swanky Ritz Carlton. For a more informal atmosphere, head back
