I love how modernity and tradition in this vibrant city of Hong Kong intertwine. Exploring this fast-paced urban jungle, I was able to see a modern city rich of ancient culture.
Here are some places we visited during the trip:
Mongkok: This place is known for Ladies’ Market where you do bargain shopping of bags and clothes, Temple Street Night Market for street food and just about anything (toys, clothes,souvenirs), and Sneaker Street where shoes and sports stores are located.
Tip: Bargain! Bargain! Bargain!
Central: It is the business district of Hong Kong. Skyscrapers, luxury malls with high-end brands, fancy restaurants, and night clubs surround this financial hub. You can also find here the oldest Temple in Hong Kong, the Man Mo Temple.
Tip: Go to the rooftop garden of IFC mall and enjoy the view. It’s open to the public. 🙂
Tsim Sha Tsui: It is a shopping and nightlife district in Kowloon. You can watch Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights in TST Promenade and appreciate Hong Kong’s skyline. It’s interesting to watch street performers and try out one of Hong Kong’s favorite snacks… egg tart.
I’ve only seen a part of Hong Kong and I know there’s more to explore, more places to see, more food to try, and more people to meet. I will definitely visit this dazzling city again.
