WANDERLUST: Hong Kong (HK)
You know you’re in Hong Kong if you can’t keep your eyes off the newest LV bag; If you can’t stop talking about night markets and cheap stuff. And also the mixed-breed of delicious foods!
Hong Kong alternatively known by its initials H.K., is a city-state and is a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, enclosed by the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea. Hong Kong is known for its expansive skyline and deep natural harbour, and with a land mass of 1,104 km2 (426 sq mi) and a population of over seven million people, is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. Hong Kong’s population is 93.6% ethnic Chinese and 6.4% from other groups. *wikipedia
HK’s speaking language is mostly Cantonese, but of course like other Countries it’s now a mix of different cultures, different races, and different ethnicities. Now, what even more exciting is their numerous tourist spots that you can go to and child-friendly spots, like th e Magical Disney Land, Ngong Ping 360 and many more!
This has one of my biggest trip and my first very own time of celebrating my 22nd birthday out of the country and inside the magical place on earth! We went to a lot of places in a short period of time, we stayed at HK for 4 nights and 5 days (if I’m not mistaken).
The busy street, the busy people, the business district, the district lights, the street night flea markets, the hostels in Chungking Mansion, all the luxury brands… Everything fascinates me, everything in HK makes me smile. And yes, it’s a must visit place!
On our first day, we didn’t waste any of our time, we hit our hostel right away and had lunch at a Korean Restaurant and took a breathe of the Country were in, we took a walk to the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui, and went to Victoria Peak Tram and as well as Madame Tussauds! This time since its my long-week celebration I have decided to be a tourist, i parked the “traveler” inside of me and just enjoy!
So giving you fun pictures from the Shopping Paradise of Asia, Hong Kong!

touched-down at Hong Kong International Airport
We were craving for some Korean Dish, so we found this “hole-in-the-wall” Korean restaurant. I forgot the name (apologies) and it was soooo good! We had Spicy Korean Chicken BBQ for lunch and of course some free starters!
the place was so nice and very modern and refreshing! the Resto crew was kind too, we even go a photo together with her!
After having lunch we strolled around the Urban jungle; amazing buildings, no traffic at all, people are so organized too! Who won’t be fascinated by the luxurious brands that is all around Hong Kong? Of course all girls felt the same way that I did! So here are some few shots that I took while roaming around the beautiful Hong Kong!
and also the cheap stuff! my favorite to-go store is SASA!!!! 🙂
Hong Kong won’t be HK without the pretty buildings towering all over the city! here are some shots that i took! I am pretty amazed how neat and artistic the people are! The designs of the buildings are well done, and I believe that it’s also well taken care of!
one of the highlights in Hong Kong is the Symphony of Lights. It caters how fantastic Hong Kong is at night! I was really glad that it didn’t pour!
it usually starts at around 7pm or 8pm! you can also buy some popcorns or any chips and drinks while watching the breath-taking lights and sounds in motion!
On our Day 4 in HK, before we went to Macau we took some time to digest Hongkong. 🙂

after our visit to the magical place, we went to the Temple Street Night Market where you can buy cheap stuff that , HK is indeed a shopping haven! I bought my Make up train case in HK, a birthday gift to myself! I tried the Tsing Tsao beer which is pretty a popular beer in HK.
