Game on There two types of people in Hong Kong: those who enjoy spending the summer months being trapped on a boat full of strangers, drinking for eight hours straight in 90 per cent humidity and the searing sun, and those who don’t. For the latter, who find the whole junk trip thing a bit overwhelming, you can always retreat indoors, blast on the aircon and invite friends over for some old-fashioned parlour and board games. Shanghai Tang has this very chic, limited-edition backgammon set (HK$29,800) in lacquered wood and lovely colours and featuring a lucky coin motif on the box cover. Hurry, though – there are only 10 available.
