Eat It: You'll find the whole range of Chinese cuisine in Hong Kong -- and the place is seriously food-obsessed! It's home to the world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant, dim sum spot Tim Ho Wan. And whether you crave standards like Peking duck and beggar's chicken (the whole bird is sheathed in clay and cracked open with a hammer tableside) or go for regional specialties, Hong Kong has them. Troll Temple Street Night Market for street food or discover chefs like Alvin Leung Jr. of Bo Innovation, who's pushing the envelope by using traditional ingredients in innovative new ways -- like his Shanghai soup dumplings (xaio long bao), which are missing their usual dough wrapper, contained only in a delicate gelled membrane. Leung's tasting menu is an adventure in itself.

Experience It: Home's Cooking takes you shopping at a wet market (where fish and other fresh ingredients are sold) and then to a cooking class in the owner's home. Hong Kong Foodie, Little Adventures in Hong Kong and Big Foot Tour all offer food tours that give you insider access to local cuisine.
