– travel guide – HONG KONG

Traveling,

It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.
Stay
We stayed at the Inn Hotel, which is well located, at Koowlong though. It’s next to the MRT Station Mao Kok and the main road ‘Nathan Road’. The rooms are not big but it’s a pretty new and modern Hotel.

Eat & Drink

When you go to Hong Kong you definitely have to try some typical Cantonese food. Well, I’m basically not a big fan of it but there are some really delicious things you should to eat:

  • Dim San
  • Tong Yuen: filled with black sesam or peanuts
  • Egg Waffles: gai daan jai
  • Milk tea, sweet rolls with butter, scrambled eggs at Australien Diary Company
  • Egg tarte
  • Coconut juices
  • Rice noodle rolls
  • Macaroni noodles for breakfast
See & Do
  • Wander the neighbourhood of Soho at Hong Kong Central (around the world’s longest escalator system)
  • Victoria Peak for an amazing view and the sunset
  • Stroll along the Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront & the Avenue of Stars and enjoy the breathtaking view and the Light Show at 8pm
  • Lantau island to escape from the hectic city centre
  • Street Markets at Kowloon Island – Lady Market & Temple Market
  • Take a tram along the Queens Road
  • Ngong Ping 360 & the Big Buddha 
  • Kowloon Park to relax
  • Shopping at Causeway Bay & in one of the numerous shopping centers throughout the city.
  • Man Mo Temple – have a look inside before you judge it from the outside
  • When you’ve time, then you should definitely go to one of the islands or/and into the country side.

The Victoria Peak: you get there either by bus or with the peak tram. We took the Peak Tram. It’s a really nice way to experience the natural beauty of the city. How to get there: Take the MRT to Admiralty Station, from there just follow the signs.
