My Fave Place, Hong Kong

Hong Kong is an action-packed city where there is something going on every day of the week.

I always celebrate Christmas in this beautiful country, its not Christmas without jingle bell lol..

The Hong Kong weather in winter doesn't necessarily mean overcoats and gloves. Winter weather in Hong Kong is mostly cold and dry.  Local people do not like this as much as Autumn as it is too cold.  Like Spring it is a time of alternation as it goes between a clear and overcast sky. Hong Kong winter season doesn't snow actually and its still consider winter season. Winter season is from November to February and its the same as the rest of northern hemisphere.

Boasting an excellent public transporation network, it is so easy to get around Hong Kong by MTR (Subway), Buses, Ferries and Trams etc.

MTR Hong Kong operates Airport Express Railway and urban metro railways

               basement MTR, Central Station
             TRAM, anywhere your destination is for 2$ hk 

The heart of Hong Kong, has all the exciting shopping, gourmet, entertainment and outdoor activities.

           Tsim Sha Tsui, the Elements Mall Big mall so spacious

The most attractive is the Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei, Sham Shui Po and Mong Kok areas, famous for the variety of shopping, gourmet, entertainment and cultural attractions.

The temples, villages and natural environments are still preserved, and the Airport and the Hong Kong Disneyland are located on Lantau Island.

Hong Kong Disneyland is the fifth Disneyland-styled theme park in the world. The park features Main Street U.S.A., Adventureland, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.
           Disneyland Hotel, stayed here for a night, so expensive

Ocean Park HKHome to Hong Kong's most diverse and inspiring marine life, amusement park.

Beautiful Views from The Peak (Victoria Peak)
 Hong Kong, The City of Life, has one of the most beautiful and stunning views in the world! Therefore it is nick named "Pearl of the Orient". So when you come to Hong Kong, you must not miss this marvellous night scene!

To reach The Peak, you can take a ride on The Peak Tram.The steepest gradient is i think 35 degrees, which offers you an unforgettable journey.

Just a reminder, if you have enough time, you should reach the Peak before the sunsets, so that you can enjoy the day-view, sunset and night view of Hong Kong!

numerous high-end restaurants and pubs scattered around "Lan Kwai Fong" and SoHo areas high-end shopping centres such as The Landmark, Princes Building and IFC Mall
many antique shops on the streets such as Hollywood Road and Cat Street financial institutions such as the HSBC Building and Bank of China Tower government headquarters, the Legislative Council Building, Statue Square and City Hall.

            Lan Kwai Fong ,lots of bars and fancy restaurants

                                                          Apple Cider, I think this drink made me warm

                  Time Square HK

Lamma Island
Located about half an hour by ferry from bustling downtown Hong Kong, Lamma is an eclectic melting-pot of arty culture and Chinese tradition. Due to its proximity to town, it is one of the most adored weekend getaways. Clean air, golden beaches, delicious seafood and fantastic hiking are the main draws.

Foods are amazing, I always get their roasted duck since its kinda cheap in HK compared here in PI. 
             honestly, I forgot the name of this food..
                             I was alone having my fancy dinner at SOHO resto in SOHO area

                 HUGE lobster hmmm yummy!!
                                                anchovy and pepperoni pizza my fave  from pizza express HK

Most shops and restaurants here open until 11pm or 12am but bars and restaurants in Wan Chai are open til dawn, and there are so many things to do here, making Hong Kong such a dynamic city!
