Details & Review
Details: I found this flight bundle using SkyScanner’s multi-destination feature.
Review: The price we paid was great but you do get what you pay for. The Asian low budget airlines have restrictive baggage policies (you can creatively circumvent this in every airport except Siem Reap) and no in-flight meals.
Where We Stayed?
Breakfast Incl.: No
Room Type: Family Comfort Room w/ Smartphone
Details & Review
3 Guests | 2 Nights
Review: We were backpacking through Southeast Asia and tacked on Hong Kong after Vietnam. HK doesn’t have many hostel options and none that we would consider so we stayed at Kew Green. The hotel was great for the three of us as it had two bedrooms with a double bed and two twins. The hotel is clean and has an amazing staff. It is centrally located and extremely close to the metro station. We loved it and had no complaints. They even exchanged currency for us at the front desk and had a smart phone with data that we could take while exploring the city.
What We Did?
Our group visited Victoria Peak at nighttime and that the view from up there is a beauty. We took the peak tram up and night and was greeted with a short line and and easy process. We only paid for the Peak Tram and not for access to the level for the 360 view.
When we exited the Peak Tram we followed the crowd, took the escalators up about 3 floors and asked someone to point us to the side door that you can exit to see the view for free.
Review: Located in the iSquare complex and listed in multiple places as one of the best rooftop bars in HK, our group decided to go looking for Eyebar. We called in advance to see if reservations were needed for the night we wanted to visit and it wasn’t. HK, can get expensive so we also ensured that the drink prices were affordable. We only went for the view so we asked to be sat outside and nursed a drink each. The view and the atmosphere is great so be sure to check it out if you’re in need of a nighttime activity.
Review: IFC mall is a huge shopping complex that hosts an amazing, one-of-a-kind Apple store (do visit), awesome restaurants and a great rooftop view. The area that IFC is in is worth exploring especially for those who just love to wander.
Review: Causeway is a great area with so much to do and a lively vibe. We wandered the area with no real destination and truly enjoyed ourself.
Price: $$ (Price Depends)
Review: The hookah bar is located at Good Luck Thai Food. We were greeted by “Elvis”. He’s funny and really adds to the ambience of the spot. We went at night after Eyebar and the whole street that the restaurant is located in just comes to life. It was a great time. We didn’t eat there just ordered a round of shisha.
Where We Ate?
Price Point: $$$
Review: One of the members of our group had been before and raved about this place. We walked there after eating lunch at Sabah Malaysian. She made believers out of us because the buns were indeed really tasty. Go visit and taste for yourself.
Price Point: $
Review: What can be said other than…..GO EAT HERE, RIGHT NOW. Tim Ho Wan is known as “The World’s Most Inexpensive Awarded Dim Sum Restaurant” and what they forgot to mention is just how freaking delicious their food is. The NY chain holds a Michelin star and it is one of the cheapest Michelin-Starred meals in the world. The two of us in the group who are not vegetarian lol, recommend the baked pork buns and quite frankly everything on the menu.
Price Point: $$
Review: There was a Coco’s right next to the hotel. If you love Boba tea, do stop here.
If you’ve never had Boba, do stop here.
Price Point: $
Review: After Malaysia, we were constantly looking to eat Roti Canai. This restaurant was listed as one of the best restaurants in HK for Roti Canai. While it was not as good as the real deal in Kuala Lumpur, we enjoyed eating here…so much so that we ate here twice.
