uk travel blogger

Hong Kong will always be one of those places that will hold deeply in my heart for a very long time. Having holidayed and worked here in the past, each time I set foot upon the country, I always leave with the best memories in tow. Despite this trip being rather short, I still managed to do everything I had planned, so while it’s fresh in my mind, I have put together this quick post on the five things to do when visiting Hong Kong

holiday inn hong kong

Stay AtHoliday Inn, Golden Mile – Amongst the hustle and bustle of the busy streets lies this stylish hotel located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. Surrounded by a multitude of shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars, you will never run out of things to do and places to see. The main public transport link, the MTR has a station right opposite the hotel so it is very convenient and quick to get around. I will be doing a separate blog post on more details of my stay at this hotel soon, make sure you check back in for it.

ladies market hong kong

Shop AtLadies Market – A trip to Hong Kong will never be complete without a visit to the famous Ladies Market. Located in Mong Kok on Tung Choi Street, you will find an array of stalls selling anything from the souvenirs to fashion items to electronic goods. Nearly all stalls will not have prices displayed for their products and this is where the fun starts, you will have to haggle with them. My tactic is to go half on their first call, always have a price in mind that you be willing to pay and work with them on it. Nine out of ten times, they will sell it to you for your price, if not, walk away and I guarantee you that they will call you back.

Must TryLocal Street Food – To really get a feel for the country and it’s cuisine, street food is a must when visiting Hong Kong. The curry fish balls, fried squid and egg pancakes are my absolute favourites and taste so, so yummy. They cook it on the spot for you and it always taste so fresh and flavoursome. It’s also super cheap, so make sure you stock up on those portions.

the peak hong kong

Must VisitThe Peak – One of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong, a trip to The Peak is must for any go-getter. Not only will you get a stunning view of city, shopping and dining up the mountain is also pretty darn fabulous, not forgetting Madame Tussauds is also located there. The easiest and most scenic way to get there is by travelling on The Peak Tram which is easily accessible from Central Station

    Hey!

    I think that I would like to visit Hong Kong but it scares me in some way. I guess it is because there are too many people, too big streets and everything is so big! I guess it must be amazing and beautiful thou! Maybe one day I will go there!
