Hong Kong, once more
I'm back from my Hong Kong trip!
FYI, I was born in HK because my parents were working there at that time thus we are very familiar with the country...
This trip, is rather different from my other Hong Kong trips. It has always been with my family and it's always food and massive chiong shopping however, this time it's more touristy as I went with my goodfriends and it's their first time landing foot in HK. Normally, with my family we don't visit those touristy places because on my first few trips there (ever since I've been into taking pictures) I've already been there! hahaha
Duty Free Shopping
Time for Boarding!
Arrival at Hong Kong International Airport
The guys making themselves useful. Thankgod for them!
First things first, doing what tourists always do (;
We purchased the Airport Transfer train card to travel from the airport right to Hong Kong Island itself.
It's much cheaper compared to taking a maxi cab, and trust me it gets to HK really fast. To be exact, 24mins only!
Airport Transfer Train to City...
Arrival at Hong Kong Island side
Hired a cab to the Hotel for check-in
Finally, we saw the actual Hong Kong city while on the cab. We have been travelling underground!
The central financial district
Everytime in Hong Kong, I stay at L Hotel
Honestly, I don't think it's the best amongst the rest and thus wanted to try other hotels but after checking the rates, L Hotel's the best option still, this time round.
One thing good, its located near the train station 'Tin Hau' (Tian Hou), on the Hong Kong island side, very convenient!
One thing about hotels in HK generally, is that they tend to be a little pricey YET very very small :(
After checking out the hotel and settling in for awhile, food was of utmost priority. We were really famished!
And off to lunch!
What a better way of starting our land of dimsums trip, with some shiok famous DimSum at Central Citihall
A really huge classy place. It's quite a pricey place to eat dimsum as compared to eating authentic streetside dimsums, however, considering the central location, atmosphere & quality of food, I feel it's worth the price.
The citizens of HK like coming to such places for high tea especially, they can seat there the entire day simply with their newspapers in hand
I like the way we get our food here. Basically, the waitresses will push the food around from table to table and you simply have to pick and choose. It's good especially when we were super hungry. Just take and can eat straight away!
The spread of dimsum we had! We can really eat a lot!
Zooming in on this Beef Ball, super duper delicious! Looking at them now makes me salivate :/
Next to it, is their ROM venue so obviously there's gonna be nice backgrounds for some photo takings
What's unique about this particular building is that the levels can be moved about like legos!
Walking route towards H&M
C'mon, which girl can resist Chanel *eyes lid up*
One place I never fail to go to in HK is H&M. However, surprisingly this time round, no sales & nothing interesting to buy :( To think I was quite hyped about going there!
Anyways, before getting to the H&M building, you could consider passing by these 2 parallel streets across H&M. They sell things which are quite cheap. Plus, what you can find is the factory outlets where they sell clothing outruns at a super low price, like I got afew skirts at only S$1 each!
Oh, you can find those Hello Kitty and friends merchandisers there as well!
Anyways, after shopping, we took a long walk up to our next destination...
We just had to take a picture with it, it's about what we studied in LAW. HAHA
Passed by a pretty famous Cathedral
Besides Victoria Peak, we went to Madam Tussauds Museum which is inside The Peak.
Did the entire post separately, you can read it here!
BRRR! We braced through the weather and totally deserve some supper. Goodfood, it's a given...
Brought them to one of my favourite tau huey places... Thus far, I never fail to visit this shop everytime I'm in HK
Authentic Tau Huey. I prefer the authentic kind compared to the Lao Ban kind. That night's one was a little too sweet through :/
Legendary Hong Kong Fried Noodles. Shiok!
Basically, we had a good mix between cold and hot food which makes my tummy go GAH GAH!
On the streets of night HK
