A recent Vegas vacation has reminded us how those of the native Asian persuasion have a proper respect for delicious luxury. With Louis Vuitton handbags practically a prerequisite, these top-class tourists served as a beautiful inspiration for the sweet life that can result when you budget monogrammed accessories and international travel into your yearly budget with the kind of importance we usually reserve for foolish things like food, savings, and keeping our Vogue subscription current. Forget the honeymoon suite – we’re heading to lux destination Hong Kong for shopping, shopping, shopping.
Where To Stay
The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong Ambassador Suite has everything you need to keep you in the style to which you’ve grown accustomed. After all, the true luxury of luxury is having everything at your fingertips at all times, no matter what you’re doing.
Where To Shop
The IFC Mall has an appealing location in central Hong Kong, and a selection of shops that cover everything from chic standby Burberry to Cerrutti 1881, Lanvin and Etro, and classic brand Dormeuil for the well-dressed mister.
Designer groupies might want to increase proximity to the good stuff with a stay at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental, home of a sexy boutique hotel and shops like Chanel, Louis Vuitton (pictured), and British standby Harvey Nichols. That kind of fabulous right outside the door? When we say we won’t leave the hotel for the entirety of the honeymoon, we don’t mean because of the vibrating beds. (Note: we don’t think there are actually vibrating beds. If there are, we might have to work something out with the concierge regarding room delivery of a fab new Chanel bag.
