Dive into Hong Kong’s industrial history with a stay at the Camlux Hotel, a flask factory turned heritage accommodation located in Kowloon Bay. Talk about a dramatic pivot!
If you’re a movie buff, you may have seen insulated flasks emblazoned with floral designs in various old Hong Kong movie frames. In the era before product placement, as we know it now, many of those thermoses were produced by Camel, a Hong Kong brand dating back to 1940. Vintage Camel products have been repurposed into creative fittings throughout the common areas and the 185 rooms of Camlux, and if you’re looking for a utilitarian yet charming made-in-Hong Kong souvenir, the bottles can still be purchased from stockists around the city, including at the hotel.
