Vivienne Tang, founder of wellness and travel platform Destination Deluxe, gives us the inside scoop on her go-to spots for maintaining a healthy lifestyle in Hong Kong.
Genie Juicery in IFC Mall is my number one spot for a cold-pressed raw juice to kick-start the day. I follow it up with a spin at XYZ, the cityâ€™s coolest cycling studio which will put any Lan Kwai Fong hot spot to shame. Spinning there is like your Friday night out, but much healthier. After working up an appetite, I enjoy lunch at Grassroots PantryÂ on Hollywood Road, where chef Peggy Chan serves up the finest vegan and vegetarian gourmet food in town. I then head next door to Caelum Greene, Hong Kongâ€™s first dedicated athleisure and lifestyle boutique, to browse the latest activewear and natural home and beauty products. I finish my day with Pilates and active stretching at the Barre 2 BarreÂ studio on Cochrane Street.
