Hong Kong – Dragon’s back hike

Hong Kong – Tim Ho Wan & Sha tin


Today we went to go try the Michellin starred dimsum at Tim Ho Wan in Olympic Centre, looking at a map it wasn’t too far from us so we got the bus from our apartment and was dropped off outside. We walked through the mall side 2 and found the restaurant. There was a lot of people outside so we had to wait for a while but could fill out our dim sum sheet in the meantime. There wasn’t the biggest variety but we chose some of our favourite things like char siu bao and Chung fun.

Hong Kong – Lamma Island & Light show


We woke up early today and headed out to a local cafe across the road to eat some congee. It cost 20hkd and was really yummy pork flavour, real nice start to the day. Then we got a MTR to Hong Kong and took a ferry from pier 4 to Yuen Sha Wan, which costs $23.70 one way. I thought we would have to wait a while as the Sunday service is usually one ferry every half hour but it was really quick to get on the boat. We sat at the top outside on the left so we could see the best views, and enjoyed the 30min journey.

Hong Kong – Mongkok & Lan Kwai Fong


We arrived around 7am in the morning so there wasn’t long to collect things and go through immigration. We headed for the bus station and took a bus for 40$ straight to Jordan, it’s much cheaper than the HK Express which is $100. It only took 40mins as it was still quite early, and the seats were comfortable. We had a short walk to the airbnb, and I bought a 4G simcard for 8 days at $110 which includes 5GB of data and unlimited texts and calls to local numbers. It was a good thing I had bought it as we had to call our Airbnb person to help us get to the flat.
