    Hong Kong Favorites

    In 2011, my family and I went to Hong Kong for a quick 4 day stay. I brought with me our eyeglasses prescription (me and my son). A friend, who lives in HK and works at an eye clinic, recommended I see her friend Mr. Paul at Idol Vision. We went there Monday morning, picked out our glasses and picked them up on Thursday evening. The glasses were...

    Hong Kong Favorites

    When people ask me "What's your favourite thing about Hong Kong", its an easy question to answer. Just being part of the frantic activity of everyday life is what I enjoy most. If I had to choose my favorite building then that would be easy too, as its no secret that I always feel warm and fuzzy everytime I pick out the mesmorising Bank of China...

  • Ocean Park

    Hong Kong Favorites

    Ocean Park was fun but it was also quite a walk - uphill, downhill, quite steep. The cable car ride was breathtaking - if you are not afraid of heights. Bring stroller!!! The cool air, the cool transportation, the great food and fun things to do!

  • Kowloon

    Hong Kong Favorites

    To combat the winter cold in HK, make sure to wear layers on your clothes. It's not necessarily the bulky jackets. You can have a shirt, then sweater, and a muffler or shawl (which you can wear in different styles). Be sure to wear closed shoes or rubber shoes with socks. The hotels I've stayed in the Tsim Sha Tsui area were not really that good...

  • Victoria Peak

    Hong Kong Favorites

    It might happen that the Q for the Victoria Peak is really long. Depending on your plans and on your budget, pass the line on the left and proceed to the counter of Madame Tussaud. I noticed a board telling about a package. Which means you buy a ticket for Madame Tussaud and the Victoria Peak and you pass all the other people. Worth to consider, as...

  • Star Ferry

    Hong Kong Favorites

    I recommend taking the Star Ferry around the beginning of your stay in HK to examine the impressive Skyscrapers and the total skyline. It is a quick, inexpensive ride that provides plenty of picture opportunities. It gives one a general evaluation of the scope of the size and magnitude of the island.
