Dim Sum?

by lifecoach

I don't want to sound naive but my knowledge of dim sum is very limited. Before I seek it out when in Hong Kong, is there selection of Dim Sum for vegetarians?
thank so much :-)

Re: Dim Sum?

by mim95

yes, there are vegetarian restaurants with dim sum. If you go to regular restaurants, chances are there are lots of things that you can't eat.

Thanks so much, is there a good selection of vegetarian restaurants in Hong Kong, and do you know of any you would suggest. I'm staying at the Langham hotel so around there would be great but we will obviously be travelling around so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Even regular dim sum places has vegan food. There is just plain steam veg in oyster sauce, fried bean cure, steam buns with no meat, egg custard, noodle shops. There are many vegetarian restaurants in H K, and there are many signs in english that said so. I would walk around Kimberley road area as I remember many vegan places there. cheers Tommy x

@xymmot FYI eggs and oyster sauce are not vegan.

Just another FYI, fried dim sum dishes are often fried with pork fat. The best advice is have dim sum at an all vegetarian restaurant and I'm certain there are quite a few in HK.

Travel Tips for Hong Kong

Old buildings - the other side of Hong Kong

by mim95

These old buildings are harder and harder to spot these days, as many of them have been replaced by modern skyscrapers. Wan Chai still have some, but there is also a lot of development going on in the district. I'm not sure if they will still be around in a few years or so. If you happen to pass by one, take a photo as it may be the thing of the past soon.

Preserving old buildings have been a hot topic since the dismantling of the Star Ferry clock tower in Central, which has created a huge public debate about not enough is being done to save the buildings with historical significance. It is not possible to keep all of them, but at least something should be preserved, otherwise there will be no history left, but photographs of the old days.

Leave the kids at home!

by Leah1231

Because the night life is well worth seeing, if you wanted to make the most of it, leave the kids at home! With so many restaurants, bars, nightclubs etc, you will want to sample quite a few into the wee hours of the morning.

Of course if your not into the nightlife, Hong Kong and kids are fine. In actual fact that is proably the equally appealling thing about Hong Kong is that it is very safe, and people are honest. I haven't once been short changed in the three years we have lived here! Going back to the Gold Coast can seem very quite after time in Hong Kong.

The Central

by Sharrie

Start your exploration from CENTRAL: the business district & financial centre of HK. To tour HK, there are two major distinct area - the HK island side & the Kowloon side. Since I'm more familiar with HK island, I'll start from here. Essentially, HK is made up of many great architecture in its skyline. Nice modern buildings adorn its business district & the very beautiful Victoria Harbor; one of the MOST beautiful harbor in the world!

Departure day. Adults

by Princess_Emily

Your all checked in, boarding passes in hand, the wife has the kids cornered in the play area of the Food Court and there are 2 hours before you need to be at a gate that is only 15 minutes away (including security, pass control and Duty free shopping) so what do you do?
Stop by the Currency Exchange Office and pick up some local currency of your destination, Check on your e-mails and Virtual Tourist page at the free Internet cafe, Head to the Food Court and enjoy a meal or some drinks, Purchase the latest edition of Playboy or some other magazine at the book store, and take a few minutes for people watching, you never know who or what may cross your path.

Getting around Hong Kong

by dhod

There are so many different ways to get around HK. Every form of transport is available- Bus, Tram, Taxi, Underground.
But the easiest and most enjoyable can be on foot- The central district is very easy to negotiate and find your way around, and there are so many landmarks to locate on the streetmap that you shouldn't really get lost. There is so much to see while wandering around on foot, and if you head up the peak pasing through the residential mid-levels it is amazing to see how people live in very compact accomodation.
