Perfect for: Playboys (and playgirls) looking for international action with a bit of Eastern flair
The scene: Since Hong Kong (view slideshow) has gone back to China, the city feels even more like a beacon of sexiness in a gray, smog-filled sea. With the world's most sensual skyline, gaggles of fusion restaurants, and private clubs filled with a global (and beautiful) clientele, this city has seen it all at one time or another. You'll be partying with other scene-chasers from London, Singapore, Los Angeles, and Dubai.
Don't miss: The nightlife. Hong Kong in the dark somehow feels like the set of an old Bond film or a noir spy thriller. Start out at the Kee Club, a private boîte where upscale locals make flirty eyes at financiers and moguls. When it gets late, head for the sweaty dance hall Volar, which throws nightly parties and hosts world-class DJs.
Between the sheets: Hong Kong caters to those in the know, so better put yourselves in the hands of those who really do. The Peninsula Hong Kong is marking its 80th anniversary this year, and the concierge can get you access to the Kee Club or anywhere else you might desire. It has 300 rooms with bathrooms clad in cool marble. Book one in the modern tower, which has sensational views over Victoria Harbor.
