NileGuide Expert Says:
The hotel complex is the result of an urban renewal project under Land Development Corporation to modernize a dilapidated area of Kowloon previously known as a red-light district, especially Portland Street. The only five star hotel in Mong Kok, the opening created a considerable amount of buzz in Hong Kong and everyone local will have at least made a trip there before. Awesome architecture in the mall below.

Langham Hotels International
NileGuide Expert tip:
Langham place hotel has launched a menu of summer cocktails featuring one called Pepperfection. This is a martini made from Shanghai White vodka mixed with red pepper, honey, lemon juice and garnished with Sichuan pepper, which should give you just the spicy kick you need.
