A stark contrast to the destitute, despairing side of the populace living in 'cage' homes and abject poverty. The filthy, stinkin' rich pull it off again with nary a thought to their suffering brethren.

There are way more exclusive place on the peak....but none that would let you film inside....however good effort... P.S no. The British didn't instill nautical culture in HK....we have our own Hakka people who are descended from the Royal Imperial Navy of the Song dynasty for that......but that is a common mistake....it is okay.... You've only been in "my family's hood" for 25 yrs so you can't know everything.. Also Intercontinental is not the best harbour view.....it is full of annoying big6 communist new money types......now you are just pandering to advertisers. Please...no! Glad you enjoyed the novelty in your very american way.....lol.

Only the newly rich fall for this nonsense. ... Especially sickening to see this excess in a city that makes little provision for the poor and elderly, apart from rent-a-cage housing.

I have been to Hong Kong many times and it’s a bore. The Peninsula has great service, but the amenities only became on par after the make-over renovation. The heli roof top check in is a pain to arrange. You have to co-ordinate the time and get paperwork hassle if you wanted to say take it to Macau for excursion then transit back to Chek Lap Kok etc...so you may as well go private flights all the way.. Then everything is so crowded due to tight space, so the minute you walk outside of your safe area, there are literally beggars right around the corner...then you feel terrible because the disparity etc....and your contribution to this touted “fragrant harbor” is exacerbating the divide... Skyscrapers are high rise prison the world over in big cities. Elevators, ugh..., I much prefer island getaways with nature. But this “priceless experience” too is also purchased with money currency... Why pack like sardines when you don’t have to?😂

Sounds so crass. They don't seem to care about quality, just "the most expensive." Idiots.

so after seeing this video is enough experience for me. who really need to pay for expensive dim sum or 160K wine when they'll turn into shit a few hours later. doesnt matter if it's a bowl of rice or world class cuisines they all become poop. ill just feel bad eating them while half the population dont even have 2 meals a day

Been in Hongkong for a short vacation trip. I would say, the choices to spend money is very limited. Not many places to go, not many tourism area. Indonesia is much much better choice.

You forgot to mention that this city has one of the worst wealth gap on Earth, with THE most expensive housing on Earth. Millions of people living in miserable conditions, anything from a family of three living in 300 ft. apartments (that's called lower middle class), tiny closet-sized apartments or literal cages

Born Hong Kong 1936, in mainland during WW2, Finished middle school and came to New York as a waiter, graduated from school architecture at Pratt in 1963 and had an around the world honeymoon trip in 90 days with my Hong Kong bride we met in college. Divorced in 1984 and vacation alone in Hong Kong and Guangzhou in 1989. had dinner in the ballroom of Pennisula Hotel with a live band but had no partner.Well, do I miss Hong Kong ? Very much ! But I don't need to do it again if I don't have a chance, because I already had it once before. And I am not dying to need another one. George Wu, ARCHITECT, A.I.A., NCARB 2018-8-31

I got a little homesick when I saw the Dim Sum in this video. so I went to my kitchen and took out the frozen Chinese food my daughter prepared especially for me. I do no want to go back to Hong Kong to die there. Because I am here in New York , near my only daughter and three lovely grand children who are about to be graduating from college soon .

Commie China dumping poor commie immigrants to HK @ 160 per day or 60,000 per year without HKers' consent. Aim is to "dilute" British-HK culture and change HK into a commie state like ruthless, law-less shanghai, shenzhen, beijing quicker which HKers not comfortable about. The poor commies should not have come to HK in the 1st place. They have houses and jobs in china but would like to live in a FREE country as HK. A dishwasher in HK makes HK$15,000 a month with no tax while in China it's only HK$1,000 + 20% tax. A video should explore what & why lead to immigrants/refugees living in cages. One sees tons of drug/alcoholic addicts lying around in streets of NY Broklyn or E. Vancouver, which are absent in streets of Hong Kong.

Frightening! I am just a poor American girl that has long enjoyed the front page of the Wall Street Journal. While watching this I kept thinking of the story they did . “Friends don’t let rich friends move to Hong Kong.” The article went on to explain how extremely rich Americans that were moving to Hong Kong and being poisoned by beautiful local Asian women. No surprise they would poison the tea. The family of the poor duped Americans could then not get their body or assets out of China. Not just one or two but many had fallen and the intent of the article was to help educate and curb this trend. Being poor has it’s privileges.

Wealth owned by a handfull of families get to live the life whilst everyone else works to pay their rent, which goes directly into those billionaires pockets. What a crazy world we live in. Hong Kong in. My opinion is no longer habitable, everyone squeezed into shoe boxes whilst the rich own all the land.

Not sure why some people find these expenditures "disgusting." These wealthy people, who already have beneficial capital investments in various industries, are literally creating tens-of-thousands of jobs in their drive to live very well (in a hedonistic sense, since financially poor people can live very well in other ways, too).

I dated a Hong Kong millionaire for a brief period. He owned multiple properties in Kowloon. Our dinner dates can range from $1,000 - $10,000. And when I visit, he would always get me a penthouse for about $5,000 a night and it was nothing for him.

No big deal to be a millionaire in Hong Kong. In fact anyone who owns an apartment is a millionaire, An apartment with a gross floor area of 60 sq. metre  is worth at least 10 million Hong Kong dollars or US$1.3 million.

For lower middle class Living in Hong Kong is very very complicated I have seen some recent research’s done by experts, Hong Kong is the world most unaffordable city 18x more which makes it #1 most unaffordable city in the world #2 Sydney 12.2x #3 Vancouver 11.8x #4 London 8.5x #5 New York 5.9 l want to share a little bit story as well I am working here for private company environmental engineering as a operator 12 hours a day and 6 days a week around 3 and half years so this year I requested for at least 5% raise and I got an answer after one and half month straight*No* from my boss with my contract terminated to 6 months and I asked why my contact is made 6 months and didn’t got any response I try to talk to Company HR didn’t got any response from them as well that’s mean getting kicked out after 6 months and now there kind a conspiracies going on (like extra non paid work and some of there work that I should do it)from sight engineer and project manger that I quit my self this job and leave.
