An insider lets you in on Hong Kong’s best kept secrets

Diane Nittke of Ellermann Flower Boutique likes beautiful things. Proof: her chic floral design business – plus these handpicked HKG destinations.

With two busy Hong Kong outposts of her brainchild, it’s little wonder that she frequently finds herself in Hong Kong. Go where this tastemaker goes while on the Chinese island (less than four hours away!).


1. For semi-precious moments

“I go early to the markets in Kowloon. On Jade Street, I like to buy jade discs, which make pretty coasters and trivets – they’re great for gifts.”

2. For delicious drinks

“The Woods is the most inspirational and creative cocktail bar in Hong Kong. It uses seasonal fruits and vegetables and has beautiful presentation. I never order the same thing. It would be a shame to stick to one drink!”

3. For bold breads

“I usually head to the Stanley Market on Sundays, but I skip the shopping and go to brunch at Stan Café. I crave the French classics: foie gras terrine, charcuterie platters and loads of fabulous, artisanal French cheese. The bread is fantastic, too.”

4. To junk It!

“The most amazing way to explore the stunning beaches around Hong Kong is to charter a junk. It’s not as expensive as you might think, especially if you go during the week.”

5. For surprisingly sublime sushi

In Wan Chai, I have sushi at decade-old Rokkaku, which is tucked in a little alley. I order edamame to start, then salmon sushi, cold soba and deep-fried eggplant. For dessert: one of the flavored sherbets, which are served in hollowed-out fruit.”
