What Not To Miss Out On, On Your First Trip To Hong Kong

Are you planning on a trip to Hong Kong? Or is it that you have plans for living in Hong Kong in the next few years. Whatever the reason maybe, and how ever long or short your trip maybe, if you plan on visiting Hong Kong, and you have no friends or family living there to show you around, then it’s possible that you don’t know what you should do in your trip to Hong Kong.
Everyone knows that one should go sightseeing when they visit the city. In fact, some tour guides even offer to show you the full history of Hong Kong in just one day. But what should you do apart from that? What’s not to be missed?
If you have no idea, the read on below to find out…!
The yummy, yummy food.It matters not if your visit is only for a few days, try to squeeze in a little time to sample some of Hong Kong’s finest, the food. The city boasts of several of the best Michelin-rated restaurants, so it’s not going to be of any surprise that Hong Kong shines best when it comes to its food. But apart from that, if you have time to roam, then do wander around and sample the street food. The Hong Kong style “curry fish balls”, for example, are world famous and it never tastes the same anywhere else in the world. Worry not though, for even though the mini egg puffs and red barbeque pork should make most people happy, there’s plenty of food for even the vegetarians to enjoy, click this to see more.
The unforgettable drinks.Apart from the food, the drinks in Hong Kong too are unforgettable and unpardonable to miss. Though there are many alcoholic drinks to satisfy your thirst from, we do admit that the craft beers in Hong Kong are our favorite.
The craft beers in Hong Kong are brewed specially for Hong Kong and many of these brands cannot be found outside. But if you prefer to stay away from the alcohol, and if you’re looking for something simple, then do try the Taiwanese bubble teas or the “panty hose” milk teas. A trip to Hong Kong is never complete until you sample the sweet sugar cane juice, so don’t forget to try it out!
The shopping.Ah! This is something that we needn’t even bother reminding you of. With Hong Kong’s vast popularity when it comes to shopping, it’s no surprise that Hong Kong is filled with impressive shopping malls, and that most popular international brands have outlets in Hong Kong. But there’s so much more to Hong Kong shopping apart from the malls. Whether its clothing or jewelry, electronics or furniture, you can find the best of these in Hong Kong. For designer brand clothes and products, your safest bet would be the malls. But for a more fun, bargain filled shopping and truly local experience, try hitting the mini malls and most importantly the street markets.
Don’t try to overdo or over cramp your day though…relax and enjoy!
