Our stay in Hong Kong was short, but full of discovery. Arriving early evening, we set out to eat something authentic and tasty. We hopped on the MTR, got off in Central (which was an experience in itself, walking the brightly lit streets after sundown), and ended up eating the best Chinese food we’ve ever had (thanks Jo!)
The extremely efficient MTR system
Hong Kong by night
Traditional roast goose, tamarind sauce, steamed rice and Won Ton soup with noodles is a meal we will not soon forget. James absolutely loved the soup and slurped up almost an entire bowl to himself!

We kicked off the next day eating breakfast in the hotel lounge- dragon fruit, Asian pear, steamed pork buns, fried dumplings and fried fish all topped the list

We started our day by crossing over to Kowloon. MTR to get there and ferry to return
Back in Hong Kong, there was no question that everyone was getting ready to ring in the year of the Dog (which of course caught James’ attention at every corner…..pointing out the many dogs and barking away)
Those who know us, know we are drawn to outdoor markets…..and so our HK market hopping started. From clothes to food to toys, we saw our fair share of kiosques in the few hours that we had
Walking the streets of Hong Kong was impressive in itself. The hustle and bustle, the towering buildings, the bamboo scaffolding and the laundry hanging out of windows all worked together to give us a taste of life in HK.
Before we knew it, we had to head back to collect our bags and head off to the airport.
HK, we hope our paths will cross again someday!
And now, off to Bangkok!
