“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Central is the main finance and business district of the city, and a hub of constant activity. Major landmarks located in Central include Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong's premier nightlife enclave, and the base station of the quaint Peak Tram. This funicular tramway transports tourists to the summit of Victoria Peak, Hong Kong's highest point, with panoramic vistas over Hong Kong Island and beyond. Central also hosts some of Hong Kong's most renowned Cantonese restaurants, including Yung Kee and Luk Yu Teahouse, both famous for their authentic dim sum. Central's iconic buildings include the Norman Foster-designed HSBC building, the jagged-edged Bank of China Tower and sky-touching edifices of the International Finance Centre.
