Gok Wan's holiday heaven and hell

Which was your best holiday?

I’ve enjoyed so many fantastic holidays over the years, but some of my best have been in Thailand. I love the food, the people, their culture and pretty much everything about the country. Whenever I get a break from work, it’s one of the places I head for. As my television shows are not shown over there, I can get about with no one recognising me, which is great.

The attractions of Thailand for me are the shops and the colourful street markets. There are loads of bargains and it’s a dream destination for shopaholics like myself. I also love the massages that you get over there.

And the best hotel you’ve stayed in?

I absolutely love the Mena House Oberoi hotel in Cairo, which overlooks the Great Pyramids of Giza. The pyramids look spectacular any time of day, but they are particularly stunning during sunrise and sunset and at night when they’re lit up. The hotel is absolutely amazing and richly furnished with magnificent antiques and original works of art. Another favourite is the W hotel in Hong Kong. It has the most incredible views of Hong Kong harbour, some fabulous restaurants and one of the world’s highest rooftop pools.
