Off to Hong Kong!

So it’s been a bit since my last post! I took some time off and went back to Asia for my big trip this year. On Halloween I headed to Hong Kong for 5 days for the first part of my Asia Trip. I’ve never been and wasn’t sure what to expect, but I couldn’t wait to check it out!

Hurry up, luggage!

It was a 16-hour direct flight from Newark. I arrived in Hong Kong around 9pm Wednesday night. After grabbing my luggage, I got a taxi and headed to my hotel. It was a Fast & Furious taxi ride- so fast with so many sharp turns. They are some skilled drivers!


I booked all my hotel rooms though Agoda once again. I stayed at the Harbour Bay Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui. The room was small, but clean. The price was reasonable for 5 days and it was located near everything.

By the time I checked in, it was past 10pm. I wanted to grab a bite to eat before calling it a night.

Fresh Fruit Juice

All the street vendors looked so good. Prices weren’t bad either.

Egg Waffles

After wandering around for a bit, I decided to have a quick dinner at Macau Restaurant.

I sat myself down in a small booth. I ordered a Lemon Water thinking it would just be water with lemon. The sweetness took me by surprise with the first sip. Wasn’t expecting it to be sweet, but it was good.

I ordered the XO Sauce Noodles with Beef. It was a hefty portion and the noodles were tasty.

The picture of the Fried Squid on the menu looked good too, so I got it. It was hot, crispy, and served with a wasabi dipping sauce. Not bad.

No complaints about my first meal in Hong Kong. The city was still buzzing as midnight approached and I walked around for a bit before going back to the hotel. Couldn’t wait to rest up and get ready for the next day!
