PentaBuzz: Hong Kong

This week we’re venturing east again to a city that is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the world. Hong Kong really does have the X Factor.

Our pentahotel in Hong Kong (located at Kowloon) is extremely stylish and acts as a great base-camp from which to adventure into this vibrant city.

Visiting Hong Kong is like entering a cultural nutribullet; Although built on traditional Chinese foundations the British influence is clear to see, as well as cultures that transcend from the city’s Fujian communities. This means Hong Kong is beautifully diverse and unique with all these cultures blending harmoniously.

While in HK, make the most of our state of the art pentagym and pentapool…a great way for pentapeople to relax and unwind after a busy day in the city.

Essentially this a party that stems from an ancient Chinese festival and takes place under the modern skyline of the Victorian Harbour. You’ll witness vibrantly coloured boats, beers from the San Miguel beer fest and a raucous crowd that screams for the boats and dances to the live music. Witness an amazing party atmosphere in true Hong Kong style.

Symphony of Lights

This spectacular light show takes place at 8pm every night above both sides of the Victoria Harbour Waterfront. The accompanying music really adds to a mesmerising visual experience and as a result it was voted as the Guinness World Records best permanent light and sound show. We wonder why…
