Visit China once in my life, this I had on my bucket list and guess what, it came true.

Strolling through the streets I notice calm vibes, peace, birds singing! I really enjoyed following little paths that suddenly take you into parks hidden up on a hillmarkets with fresh fruits, bakeries selling delicious egg tarts and of course plenty of bars coffee places and restaurants. My prejudices of Hong Kong all gone. This city is not only busy and full of traffic!

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.
  • 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 ChinaDid 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.
