Life in an urban city isn’t without its issues. Hong Kong suffers from a plastic pandemic of epic proportions, discarding over five million plastic bottles alone on a daily basis. The city’s beaches and sea shores often lie in ruin at the hands of a seemingly never-ending, single-use cycle. But all isn’t lost; the future isn’t necessarily bleak. The world is recognising the problems that have come with fast-fashion, fast food, and unsustainable lifestyles, and Hong Kong is following suit. If you’re looking to take some steps toward a waste-free, wellness-focused lifestyle and curb your carbon footprint, there are plenty of businesses and initiatives in Hong Kong to help you on your way. The growth of the wellness industry can be seen across the city and eco-friendly shops, cruelty-free beauty brands and the like are cropping up around nearly every corner, encouraging city-dwellers to adopt sustainable practices across all aspects of their life. We’ve put together a city guide for wellness warriors looking to experience the best of Hong Kong living, and those looking to stay sustainable in every aspect of your life, from the produce in your pantry to the car you drive. By Amanda Sheppard

Despite being such a small, cramped space, lil’ ol’ Hong Kong punches well above its weight. From the city’s top restaurants and their slew of Michelin stars to Hong Kong’s best bars, which are among the most creative in the region, our city proves that size isn’t everything. In fact, at the height of its influence, only the USA and India produced more films than Hong Kong. And our cinema is one of tremendous variety, too. From adaptations of popular Chinese opera, to Johnnie To’s gritty crime noirs, to the tales of repressed heartache that made Wong Kar-wai internationally famous, Hong Kong cinema can do it all. So what are the best Hong Kong movies of all time? Edmund Lee presents his definitive list chock full of some of the best films ever made anywhere on the planet.
