Get some work done

Looking for a nice place to work from in between appointments? Café Deadend, located literally at a dead end in Sheung Wan, is an airy, elegant place to sit down with your laptop and enjoy different coffee brews, a bite to eat, or delicious baked goods from sister bakery Po's Atelier next door.

Work out

Prepare for the day's work or relax afterwards by jogging along the classic route at Bowen Road, a calm, almost car-free, 4km fitness trail. It offers both lush greenery and great vistas over Central, Wan Chai and Happy Valley. The route is pretty flat, making it suitable for most runners.

Business lunch

For an upscale power lunch, try the Amber Landmark Mandarin Oriental hotel. Don't be intimidated by the two Michelin stars - at €65, the set lunch is actually pretty humanely priced for this quality. Chef Richard Ekkebus creates contemporary French dishes using seasonal ingredients, and the menu changes every three months. The setting is impressive, too.

Dinner

The vibrant Sai Ying Pun-area is a great place to soak up the street life and have dinner. This neighborhood, in the Western district of Hong Kong, is one of the latest areas to garner a cool reputation thanks to its chic boutiques, great restaurants and fun bars. Book a table at Fish School, the latest venture by much-¬hyped restaurateur Yenn Wong, and sample beautifully presented, locally caught fish, shellfish, and cocktails.

Culture

The Chinese city of Hong Kong has gained a reputation as a hot spot for art, so if you have a few hours to spare, work on your culture credentials. In recent years, leading international galleries have opened branches in the city. Gagosian Gallery, on the seventh floor of the Pedder Building dating from 1923, is one of the largest. The gallery represents many major contemporary artists such as Andreas Gursky and Jeff Koons.

Lala Curio is a great place to pick up small gifts or just fill up on home décor inspiration. Founder Laura Cheung comes from a family of artisans and has continued the tradition.
