Highly anticipated British TV series “Strangers” premiered in September.
The series follows Jonah Mulray (John Simm) as he investigates his wife's death in Hong Kong, and finds himself tangled in a web of secrets he never expected to discover.
Not only the drama itself is fascinating, but also it shows off the best attractions in Hong Kong. We have received many inquiries about the shooting locations of the drama.

Drink like the Strangers
Every time when John meets Anthony Wong it is either at a park or at the corner of the street. However when he meets beautiful ladies, it has to be at the rooftop bars, gotta be classy. Wife is dead anyway, who cares.
