Visit China once in my life, this I had on my bucket list and guess what, it came true.
What to do in Hongkong
- Take a ferry over to Kowloon (6 Min. only) to see a Symphony of Lights never seen before, a spectacular sound-and-light show involving 44 buildings on the Hong Kong Island skyline. Go at night, it’s amazing. During the day it is a busy shopping area from sneakers road to girls market, you will find plenty of tourist stuff to buy! This is a city where you walk a lot so be prepared. Steep hills up as much you want, some electric stairs in between give your legs a rest.
- The Peak is something you have to see. The view up there is amazing. You see the skyline of the city in a unique way! Try it by night! You will be speechless for the second time, I promise!
Very athlete ones can run through a park up to The Peak. The heat and level of humidity did not allow me to do that! I took a local bus which takes you about 30 minutes a ride. Alternatively you can take a touristy tram that brings you slowly up, too.
- A touristy attraction to do: ride the Ding Ding, its a double floor tram that brings you easy around the city when you’re tired of walking!
Where to sleep
- For your overnight I recommend the Soho area, its of course a more western corner but getting around from there was great and so easy for me. A hotel I recommend is the Boutique Hotel Butterfly on Waterfront (around 50 USD with special offer) or airbnb of course.
Coffee place to stop by
In soho I recommend a cute coffee place called Corner Kitchen Cafe at hollywood road, the salted caramel cake I had there are unforgettable, bombastic delicious!!
What to eat
- The best Dim Sum ever in my life I found in a typical Chinese restaurant in soho. A must try! Its name is Monchu China. Did you know that Dim Sum means “touch the heart”? They completely did!
Wesley from Wesleys Kitchen in Zurich told me, that I gonna eat the best Dim Sum ever here, and so it was!
And for the ride to the airport: uber, what else! My driver was just awesome! He made a stop to buy me some delicious Chinese biscuits he wanted me to try before leaving HK.
