Chief Concierge, Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Ronald Law

Years in industry: 15 years
 
About Me:
 
I enjoyed staying in hotels when my family was traveling and so I wanted to work in hotels and learn how to serve guests, which I did, for 15 years now.
I like sports, especially football which I play forward for my hotel team in cup tournaments. I am an ardent Manchester United fan, like so many in Hong Kong are.
I enjoyed travelling to Japan and Europe where I could appreciate their history and culture.
 
 
 
Favourite Hong Kong activity: I enjoyed checking out new places in town whether it's shopping malls and restaurants. It helps me to be more informed. I also enjoy walking around Sheung Wan, on Hollywood Road, visiting Man Mo Temple and the old shops along Tung Street.
 
 
 
My recommendation: Spend a day exploring Lantau Island.
1. Take Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car and visit Ngong Ping Village, the Big Buddha, the monastery, and admire the scenery.
2. Visit Tai O Village, a quint fishing village. Check out the stilted houses over water that residents still live in. The shrimp paste is famous and makes for a nice souvenir. And try your luck and hire a boat to see if you can sight the endangered pink dolphins which swim in the nearby waters.
 
 
 
Bonus Recommendation: Try delicious local street food such as egg waffle or egg tart. Visit a Cha Chaan Teng or a bing sutt, an old-style Hong Kong café for local favourites including the iced milk tea/ coffee mix, a real Hong Kong specialty .
 
 
 
Extra Tip: If you should want to visit Macau for the day be sure to bring your passport and you don’t need to change your money into pacatas. The Hong Kong dollar is fully accepted there.
 
 
 
Last Advice: Be sure to check the operating hours of theme parks and other attractions as some of them may close early, especially on weekends. Or just ask your concierge.
