Shopping:

Harbour City mall (800 shops) located on Canton Road in Tsim Sha Tsui. Top floor has many small restaurants and bakeries. Perfect for lunch.

Afternoon Tea:

The Peninsula Hotel built in 1928 is Hong Kong’s oldest hotel. The lobby is a stunning example of classical grandeur. In the lobby you can enjoy afternoon tea which is pricey (HK$628 for two) and the quality of the food selections (finger sandwiches, pastries, scones etc) has gone down from previous years but it is still very popular and you can expect to stand in line for about 30 minutes before being seated. http://hongkong.peninsula.com/en/default
