Arriving in Style
Night out on the Town
On our way home through Hong Kong, we had decided to book a couple of nights to explore the city, and I’m now wishing we had one more.
The city is vibrant and full of life and energy, and was fun to explore just walking around and taking it all in. We only had one day to see it all, so we started by going to Victoria Peak by ferrying from our hotel across the water and then taxiing to the top of the hill. The view was incredible and truly makes you feel like you’re on top of the world.
After that, we walked through the city, visiting some of the high end storefronts (where I may or may not have made a couple of shoe purchases :D), before making our way over to the very famous Tim Ho Wan for lunch. It was INCREDIBLE and the famous BBQ buns did not disappoint, even for this Texas girl.
That night, we went to Ho Lee Fook for dinner; they don’t take reservations under 6, but it was worth the (1.5 hour) wait. We let them bring us whatever they recommended and not one item failed to disappoint (and I’m a picky eater). [Not a food blogger, but I must say, the food impressed me the most in Hong Kong. Whether you’re spending a lot or a little, you can have a luxurious meal of all shapes and sizes depending on what you’re in the mood for.]
We topped off our last night in Hong Kong by strolling through the famous Lan Kwai Fong (LKF) to see the nightlife and action. It’s reminiscent of Bourbon street (or our very own dirty 6th) and while great to see, we quickly realized we may be a bit too old for the scene, and made our way home.
Hong Kong surpassed my expectations and was the perfect way to end such an amazing trip.
Well… now comes the brutal reality of getting back to real life. The only thing getting me through this Monday is being back in my favorite city, and home, Austin, TX <3.
