Samuel Tsang Tsz Kit | Discover Renaissance Hotels

Samuel Tsang Tsz Kit

This Hong Kong insider will give you some tips, but he says the best discoveries are the ones you make yourself.

Navigator Biography

A naturally curious explorer and occasional photographer, Samuel Tsang Tsz Kit would be out in the streets of Hong Kong searching for new stuff to capture and document even if it wasn’t his job, but it just so happens it is, and he’s really quite good at it. Permanently questing to keep his ear to the asphalt and finger on the fast flowing pulse of Hong Kong, Samuel speaks with a remarkable reverence when it comes to his role as Navigator at the Renaissance Harbour View. “When I continue to strive to keep up to date with what is happening in our neighborhood and our society, I can always share my ideas with guests and they will share with me their adventures.” Refreshingly, for Samuel, the job is as much about listening to and learning from guests and visitors as it is about his own advice and recommendations. In fact, the exchange usually excites and motivates him further: “I strive harder to explore even more, like a favorite song playing forever in my head!” This song has led Samuel to finding some of the hottest eateries, bars and unique experiences in the city.
