Wan Chai, the busy and stylish commercial area of Hong Kong, has a new urban boutique hotel that will leave your mouth agape. The Fleming is the flagship of naval-themed hotels inspired by the city's rich heritage.
Hong Kong is home to the biggest number of skyscrapers of any city (nearly double as in New York City), but once it was the quiet backwater of rural houses and fishing communities.
Then the trade boom transformed the city-state into a commercial and financial hub that attracted masses of people. With 7.5 million residents, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas in the world.
As a result, the city has one of the highest property prices and a highly competitive hotel scene fighting for the attention of business and leisure travelers.
