Disclaimer: this travel blog was from August 2017.
The very last part of our 5-month trip around Asia was spent in Hong Kong. Instead of a lengthy blog post, we thought we’d put in a few highlights of the few days we spent here before returning back to the UK.
Highlight 1 > the food, especially the Dim Sum!
We loved Dim Sum Square and Cantom Dim Sum Expert. For huge portions of dinner (not Dim Sum) Tsui Wah was a good shout and fairly cheap too.
Highlight 2 > walking some of the dragon back ridge
Offering incredible views over Hong Kong we would recommend the hike. We got a bus to the start and walked to the view point.
Highlight 3 > seeing the large seated Buddha
The seated Buddha was a little out of town but experiencing the glass floor cable car was really cool. To get the seated Buddha there are quite a few steps up, however, the views were amazing, oh and the Buddha is huge!
Highlight 4 > going to Macau for the day!
We took the first boat out from Hong Kong and the last boat back. Macau is like the Vegas of Asia but also has a cute Portuguese town as well. It was definitely worth a visit!
Highlight 5 > the city skyline
We managed to get a free open-top bus tour of the city because some travellers hadn’t planned their time properly. We also took the peak tram with the sky pass to get the view over Hong Kong.
