Wow, okay, coming to a new country once again can be pretty stressing. When I arrive somewhere new, I’m usually super confused. I have no idea where to go and what to do about anything. I’m sweaty, hungry and tired from the heavy backpack of my shoulders (Yes, this is also a part of travel life but just a small part!). When I’m in this situation, I always wish for somebody to come around and give me some basic tips for this particular place. This is why I’ve collected my knowledge from when I was confused in Hong Kong and made this blog post to tell you what to do. Great idea, right? Okay, let’s get started on some basic tips for traveling in Hong Kong.
Okay, so I was really looking forward to see some pink dolphins in the Hong Kong sea around Tai-o Village on Lantau Island. I’d read a lot about it beforehand and knew from the beginning that it would be a struggle.
Hong Kong is a crazy busy town and after a few days there, every country girl or boy will want a small break from the hassle which is why Cheung Chau Island is the subject for today’s blog post. This amazing little island in the middle of nowhere is just the perfect place for a relaxed afternoon or even a weekend get-away.
Hong Kong is a place full of history. War and old traditions are a part of this place which is why I think you should walk to the Hong Kong Museum of History to learn a bit more of the many years of development. I know what you think when I say ‘museum’ but the Hong Kong Museum of History is not like one of those super-boring, grey places talking about crazy-old things. No, this place is real.
If the Hello Kitty Café in Seoul, Korea wasn’t enough for you, then get ready for yet another post about the cute little kitty. Hello Kitty has gone all Chinese now when she moved into a cute little restaurant on Canton Road in Hong Kong. The restaurant is just around the corner from Jordan Street Station if you take exit C2. You can also take the metro to Austin Road Station and reach the Hello Kitty Restaurant.
The first time I was in China, I lived one hour away from Hong Kong. Friends from home asked me why I didn’t spend more than one weekend there during four months. Well, to make a long story short, Hong Kong was everything I didn’t need. I was in love with China, I was in love with the crazy, rural areas, the ‘small’ (China-size-small) towns where people would touch my white skin, stare way too long at me or randomly ask for my number while waiting for the bus. Hong Kong was nothing like that.
