Wander over to the lower ground floor of Selfridges, remove your shoes and proceed through a dark corridor and you’ll find the Silence Room. Designed to give visitors a chance to take time to unwind, the space is modern interpretation of the Gordon Selfridge’s original Silence Room from when the store first opened in 1909.

This well appointed speakeasy offers up respite from the din of Lan Kwai Fong. Located above restaurant Bloom, the bar serves up classic cocktails — their Penicillin in particular seems to always hit the spot.

Travelling with an iPhone or MacBook? Consider investing in an Apple World Travel Adapter Kit. As its rather verbose name would suggest, the kit comes with plugs that work with outlets worldwide, freeing up your travel adaptor for whatever other gadgets that may need juicing. Especially handy for MagSafe Adapters, which have a tendency to come loose under their own weight. (You could alternatively skip the kit and pick up a few shotgun (C7/C8) coupler cables, but we like to keep things tidy.)
The kit includes a USB power adapter, a 30-pin to USB cable, and a set of six AC plugs with prongs that fit different electrical outlets around the world. Pick it up for around $39 USD at an Apple retailer near you.
