Hong Kong - one of my favourite cities for it’s near home, filled with delicious food, shopping and one that language is no barrier. I visit Hong Kong almost every year and twice last year. In this post, I shall share some random places I like to go – for shopping, food and a drink.
Depending on the purpose of visiting – some times, walking around Ladies’ Market or Temple Street Night Market can be fun. Malls like Harbour City, Times Square and Langham Place are amongst my favourite places to shop for clothes, shoes and makeup – they are more centralized and can be easily reached via MTR.
Elements is a huge mall filled with high-end designer brands, including makeup brands. If you are near, be sure to pop by W Hotel for lunch or tea – W Hotel is beyond amazing, absolutely LOVE and I can’t wait for the one at Sentosa to open in August.
Let’s side track a little. When I was in Hong Kong last December, I had Chanel Perfection Lumiére on everyday and I LOVE the finish and long-lasting wear. It was perfect for the weather.
Speaking of shopping, my sis brought me to Chocolate – apparently a Hong Kong brand featuring White Chocolate for the ladies and Black Chocolate for the men. They have beautiful paper bags, saved me from gift wrapping.
Whenever I am around Tsim Sha Tsui, I always go to the store above – along Lock Road for some curry fish balls. The ladies running the store are never too friendly but really, I am there for the food.
At every corner of the streets, you can surely find one or two – if not rows of tea houses. I like to try a new one every time so I don’t have any particular stores to recommend. Most of those I have tried serve delicious local food – from macaroni soup, fried beef noodles to salt & pepper pork chop rice.
Food and drinks are usually cheaper but seats can be very limited and if you are alone or with a friend, the chances of sharing table with others is quite high.
When night falls, there is really nothing better than finding a café overlooking the beautiful city. Hong Kong has one of the nicest night scape where buildings light up and changes colour every minute. Another good spot for a night scroll will be along Avenue Of Stars.
From the bright and colourful streets of Hong Kong – often filled with jewelry shops, there is absolutely nothing better than chilling at the hotel lobby’s bar with a group of friends and family. Room is just levels away should anyone of us gets tipsy, I say.
Where do you like to shop in Hong Kong? Any places to recommend for food and drinks?
