In Hong Kong, rooms with a view of Victoria Harbour usually cost an arm and a leg, but the Hyatt Centric is the exception.

It’s a little off the usual tourist track, but the eastern harbour views are just as sparkly and the old-school neighbourhood is a food-lovers dream come true.

In contrast to the surrounding streets, the hotel is fresh and modern, spread over two multi-coloured towers, one topped with a gorgeous rooftop bar, the other topped with an infinity pool.

Pick your spot for sunset to watch ferries, tug boats and junks criss-cross the harbour as the sun sinks into the South China Sea.

Surrounding area

North Point still feels like the Hong Kong of 30 years ago, with washing hanging out of apartment block windows, noisy street markets and family-owned restaurants – but is just six MTR stops (15 minutes) from Central.

Scour the streets for barbecue pork buns (try Tim Ho Wan), admire the rainbow-bright 1960s architecture (see the Monster Building) and hop on the purple and orange ferry from North Point to Tung Chung, a quieter alternative to the Star Ferry.
