In Focus: Why Do These Celebs Keep On Coming Back To Hong Kong?

While Hong Kong has got all the food and shopping you could ever hope for, what's even better is there’s always a chance that you’ll just happen to run into one of the shining stars of Philippine showbiz there. What makes a vacation feel more complete than a brush with stardom, right? Here's a fab list of all the celebs spotted in the magnificent places in Hong Kong, and we learn why they're just in love with the city:


Looks like Kim Chiu and Xian Lim are having so much fun together at the world's premier fair for modern and contemporary art! What a cute snap!


It’s often best to pack clothes for layering. Hong Kong is a particularly fashion-conscious and designer-conscious city and here are the 'it' girls, Liz Uy and Georgina Wilson, showing you how to dress to impress in HK.


Bright lights, big love, is the name of the game in the big city of Hong Kong. Here's engaged couple Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia enjoying and posing against the entire skyline as it lights up.


Nothing makes us "aww" out loud like an adorable photo of a loveteam posing in a Disney theme park! Mccoy de Leon and Elisse Joson, why you so cute?


No doubt about it: Hong Kong can always surprise you. There's no way to prepare for the awe-inspiring view from Victoria Peak or for the Symphony of the Stars light show from the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. It’s a small place, packed with diversity and character. One minute you’re amidst a bustling concrete jungle in one of the most densely populated cities on earth—and in a half hour or less you can find yourself in a secluded beach with a beer and some siu mai skewers.

Recently, here in the Philippines. the Hong Kong Tourism Board launched a new marketing campaign, titled Best of All, It's in Hong Kong, headlined by four videos starring local personalities, the city's stunning skyline, and its scenery—focusing on gourmet dining, fashion and entertainment, family adventures, and the great outdoors:


1. Tasting the town. Three-star Michelin Chef Umberto Bombana has lived in Hong Kong for 20 years. Find out what his first Cantonese words were and why he thinks Hong Kong will suit even the choosiest of palates.


2. Family time. Movie star and helicopter pilot Michael Wong takes a family on adventure after adventure in Hong Kong. Climb aboard to experience the best in family fun from land and sea to sky!


 3. Journeys of discovery. Film star Sean Lau likes to leave the rush of the city behind occasionally. Follow him as he escapes the downtown to enjoy nature and an unexpected side of Hong Kong that's just around the corner.


4. Hipster stuff. Talented young fashion designer Anais Jourden Mak designed a costume that was worn in a concert by a Hong Kong superstar. See how this city inspired her to create this beautiful piece (and who wore it on stage).
