Even though the hotel boasts a fleet of custom-designed Rolls-Royce Phantoms, the most jaw-dropping way to approach this venerable Peninsula is by air. The hotel is the only one in the city with a private helicopter pad, and guests with a bird's-eye bent can make the 22-mile jaunt from Hong Kong International Airport in a sleek Aerospatiale AS355N Twin Squirrel craft (roomy enough to seat five). After the eight-minute flight, you'll arrive on the rooftop—right next to Felix, the hotel's posh penthouse restaurant designed by Philippe Starck. If you like the ride, copter tours throughout the city can be arranged via the concierge.
