Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Unlike Macau, we had big expectations about HK…..bright lights, big city, crazy shopping etc & it certainly lived up to them & more.

We stayed on Fashion Street ( basically the wholesale area for fashion buyers) which was very close to Ladies Market- another place we'd been recommended to visit. Luckily we were give some great tips form the guy whose apartment we had rented- well I use the term 'apartment' loosely as it was actually only a 8ft x 12ft box room! But after some of the advice we'd read online about dodgy hostels & way expensive hotels it was just the perfect place for us. The location was fab, everything we needed was literally just within 10 mins walk……amazing local food (where nobody spoke English which was interesting!) fashion, electronics, jewellery shops etc & the bus to the Ferry stopped right outside!

So we made the trip across to HK Island & from here did some great day trips. We of course went to Oxford Street which was full of quirky shops & cafe, and saw all of the big glam shops at Times Square & went on the famed longest escalator (weird, but true!) However the best bits were going to HK point as the views across the city are just incredible, seeing the almighty massive Buddha, as well as visiting Tao which was a really cute little fishing village.

HK we love you!
