It’s been almost 8 years since the last time I’ve visited Hong Kong. I am looking forward to see this city again and see what are the many changes. I’ve been there thrice in different occassion, two solo travels and one with my family. We were there when Hong Kong Disneyland Resort just opened and it was a Christmas Holiday travel with the family.
Most of these photos were taken the first time I started taking solo trips out-of-the-country or out-of-town during my birthday month.
Our first out-of-the-country trip as a family started when my father passed away. It was our way of mourning to cope with our loss. Go away as far as we can from the places we used to celebrate Holidays with my father.
Anyway, enough my life drama.
My past visits in Hong Kong were all about tourist destinations , exploring the scenery and immersing myself in their culture by visiting their temples and museums. For my next visit what I plan is to have an #Eatsperience. People around the world flock to Hong Kong to experience its rich culinary landscape. I was not that adventurous with food before but now I’d try anything (except poisonous ones of course).
The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) gave me a list of the must-try eats that will give every traveller in the city an athentic local experience. Here are the 5 Places 5 Dishes to #Eatsperience Hong Kong Like a Local :
