Let ‘s take a short break from Thailand and head out to Hong Kong for a short trip.
Stopped by Hong Kong airport several times but never had the chance to visit this vibrant city and eat some delicious food.
Miss K found a really affordable flight to Hong Kong so off we go. We arrived in Hong Kong Friday night and left Sunday afternoon so we had the whole of Saturday to explore.
First stop is Fa Yuen Street or Sneaker Market . It is were most local shop so prices are going to be cheaper than tourist area.
Walking a little further we found the Flower Market and just enjoyed the beautiful flowers for free.
Enjoying the moment.
Beautiful Orchids and my mother will be very happy in this store.
The next stop is the Bird Park. Here you can find bird enthusiast were they bring their birds to interact with other birds to learn new songs. But the sad part is , they are also selling birds there. We were looking at some of the birds and then the owner just gave us a bad look and took the bird away. I think he was feeling over protected over his bird.
Practicing a song, but better to be free, right?
Birds and their owners.
Walking around the city made us both hungry so we made our way to Yum Cha.
Cute little buns shaped like pigs and other cute animals
Sweet Pumpkin Lava Bun
Pig shaped Meat Bun
Cute little birds Tart.
Yum Cha offers this cute little buns, but taste wise, you can find better and more tastier treats in some areas and maybe affordable .
Now that we are filled, we head out the port area before heading to Victoria Peak.
Unfortunately, it was a cloudy day so not getting a good view.
The pirate ship. Reservation is needed.
We took a short ferry ride to Central from Tsim Sha Tsui but before heading out to Victoria Peak, have to try the infamous Egg Tart from Tai Cheong Bakery and some coffee from Pacific Coffee.
Now it is time to check out Victoria Peak. As soon as we got to the cable area, we know that it will take us forever to get to the top with all the tourist lining up, so we decided to take the taxi up and then walk back down. As soon as we got there, we have to try the egg waffle with Ice cream, eating time again 😀
Again, it was a cloudy, foggy day so no city view for us.
It was a nice walk down though and then we explore a little bit of central Hong Kong and before heading out back to the hotel, we have to have another cake and this time from Maxim Bakery.
Very very delicious Mango Lava Cheese Cake.
It was a long day of walking and eating so both of us where really tired and slept really good.
There might be some good Night clubs or bars but both Miss K and I are not really into bars and nightclub.
The next day, it was more on shopping for present and food (again) before heading out to the airport and coming back to Osaka.
Could have stayed one more day and eat more but maybe next time.
