Hong Kong preview

China

Recreational opportunities for sporting fans abound, whether it is a round of golf or an hour at the gym, but expect crowds in the evenings and on weekends.


Fitness Centers

Nearly all hotels have health clubs and spas, and private fitness centers are widespread. All of these centers have English-speaking staff to cater to the large expatriate community in Hong Kong and provide a wide selection of classes from yoga and Pilates to weight-training and kickboxing. The stiff competition keeps gyms' standards high and membership prices low, with monthly fees averaging HK$400-$700.
