Get Fancy: 7 Luxe Instagram Hot Spots In Hong Kong
1/7The Upper House
The Upper House is a kind of Hong Kong Mecca for influencers and Instagrammers, thanks to its sleek design by André Fu and sprawling sky-high views over Victoria Harbour to one side, and misty jungle views of Mid-Levels and The Peak behind. Request a corner table at Café Gray Deluxe, order one of their signature cocktails and get snap happy.

Technically, you're not allowed to take photos at this ultra-exclusive club, but that hasn't stopped many from flexing a night out at this chic destination founded by the late Sir David Tang, which is frequented by the city's most fabulous and fashionable circles. The most popular photo-opp spots? The iconic staircase and the library, of course.
