Rich kids of hong kongInstagram / mattymattycBusiness deals can be done by yacht, if you’re a rich kid.

If you’re an Instagram user, you may already be aware of how glamorous life can be as a rich kid in London, Dubai, Beverly Hills, and even Mexico City.

The ubiquitous “Rich Kids of…” has spawned TV shows, websites, and books — and new variations on the theme keep popping up.

Now you can admire the privileged youngsters living in Hong Kong.

The “Rich Kids of Hong Kong” Instagram page may have had only just shy of 4,000 followers when we found it, but it offers a glimpse into what life is like for Asia’s elite.

With a bio that reads “Let the money talk,” the account reposts images from Instagram users living some of the most extravagant lifestyles in Hong Kong and invites them to use the hashtag #rkohk on their best photos.

From first-class flights and Champagne showers to Porsche collections and luxury hotels, scroll down for a look at how the rich kids of Hong Kong spend their fortunes.

First, let’s take at look at the cars.

Here, user richard_xrx shows us all of his car keys.

This year, he said, “Santa replaced his sleigh with the 675LT Spider.”

He called this post “Tuesday motivation.”

They don’t always drive, though. Luckily, there’s the option of flying — only in first class.

This user even enjoyed some Rolex chocolates for Easter.

Champagne showers also don’t go amiss.

Mattymattyc didn’t seem to realise he couldn’t eat his new, shiny iPhone for dinner.

Whether for travelling, dinner, or simply before they get behind the wheel, they make sure they’re decked out in the best shoes.

What about the haters? User wseira says: “You gotta let negative people live in their negative little world with their negative opinion and their negative bank account.” Charming.
