Coffee break: Causeway Bay causes claustrophobia at the best of times and when a break is needed, the coffee shops are often as busy as the streets themselves. If you're a frequent shopper in the area and are interested in travel, the new Wanlilu Travel Lounge could be a godsend. The coffee bar cum private reading room provides members with a large selection of reading material including the latest travel magazines such as Conde Nast Traveller; guides by Time Out, Eyewitness and Chinese-language Mook; inspirational coffee-table books; and travel titles unavailable elsewhere in Hong Kong. Membership costs $500 a year and includes free Internet usage (Room 1501, One Hysan Avenue, Causeway Bay. Tel: 3162 3728).

Drive yourself wild: Zipping down a traffic-free highway in a sports car is a dream for many people, especially in Hong Kong. But now, those with speed needs (and big bank balances) can live out their fantasies courtesy of a five-day holiday in Australia which allows you to put at least four different convertibles through their paces. From a fleet of 12 cars, including a Lamborghini Diablo and Ferrari 355 Spyder, drivers will be able to test their skills on a racetrack, participate in a circuit event with timed laps and rally drive on a dirt circuit as well as on 200km of open country road and freeway.
