Ahead of Asia’s most important annual art fair (29-31 March), Hong Kong gallerists, artists and restaurateurs reveal the best places to see new work, savour a meal to remember, and take time out from the unceasing bustle of the city.
Henrietta Tsui, co-founder of Ora-Ora gallery and co-president of the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association: “Art Basel is a wonderful time to catch up with old friends and as well as to make new ones. I’ll be dividing my time between Ora-Ora’s booth at the fair and a solo show by the artist Xiao Xu that we’re having at our new space in the H Queen’s building in Central.”
“I thoroughly recommend the Hong Kong Museum of History. Having two children, I appreciate the way it presents Hong Kong’s past in a fun and casual way, interactive and informative. For anyone looking to understand the manifold influences that have made this place what it is, it’s a must.”
“Hong Kong is a food paradise, so no visitor should go hungry. My favourite spot is the Golden Valley Restaurant in the Wan Chai area, which serves the best Sichuan food around. Little wonder it’s held a Michelin star for the past seven years.”
