My Memorable Trip in Hong Kong

Because I wanted to see a Feng Shui Master, I went to Hong Kong.

Job commitments in 2019 found me battling to locate time to take a holiday. In the years prior, I had travelled everywhere, as well as to have a year without any travel felt bleak. Yet an unforeseen vacation towards the end of the year assisted grab the year's training course.

I made a spontaneous strategy to see a good friend in Hong Kong and also invest an extended weekend break there. For somebody that places in months of preparation and also research right into a holiday, this spur-of-a-moment plan had me feeling not really prepared and also fired up at the same time.

Initially, everything really felt too routine. Hong Kong resembled any other costly metro city anywhere in the globe. Crowded, busy with high buildings as well as glass high-rise buildings fighting for room in the horizon, similar to the people and cars on the ground. I can bring out a lot of parallels to Mumbai - the lifestyle was quite the exact same. Individuals staying in little box apartment or condos that they leave early in the day, only to be back after sundown. House-help who let themselves in to prepare as well as clean, a lot of whom are trusted with home tricks. The efficiency of public transportation makes it the lifeline of the city as well as everybody gets around much also conveniently without private lorries.

However underneath all the typical city bustle, there was something about this location that made it warmly inviting. A day right into my vacation and I understood what it was - the waters. As an island, it's bordered by beautiful blues, the extremely sight of which is comforting and also soothing. With tiny neighbouring islands, just ferry flights away, under the disguise of its mundane routine city cover, Hong Kong is distinctly captivating.

These 6 images act as the highlights of my journey and simply considering them aids me travel back in time. Resting in the house through this lockdown, this is the type of time traveling that dreams are made of.

The Peak

I hiked approximately Victoria Optimal which goes to a height of around 554 metres, for a stunning sight of the Hong Kong skyline in the evening. While there's no doubt that going back by foot will certainly give a full-rounded walking experience, I picked to take the tram down for one more experience. It was an enjoyable, fast and steep flight downhill.

Tsim Sha Tsui Boardwalk

I selected a perfect wintertime night to do this ferryboat flight. With beaming city lights emerging from a few of the largest corporate structures on the island, chilly wind in my face and also hair, this was a night I'll never forget.

Ferry Rides

There's something so healing about heaven waters surrounding Hong Kong. I stood via a lot of my ferrying about from one island to the next, most times, torn between wishing to reach my location and not wanting the ride to finish.

The Cheung Chau Island

Called the "dumbbell island" owing to its shape, walking through this isle provided a genuine island experience unlike the city-island that Hong Kong is. Cheung Chau is an angling town lined with dining establishments and their welcoming proprietors using fresh seafood. Nevertheless, there's even more to this island than the fresh fish and shellfish. I hiked to discover an excellent water body.

Lamma Island Hunt Pavilion

The largest highlight of my journey was this beautiful Chinese roof hunt. It was a little expedition up a hill on Cheung Chau but equally worth it. I'll always remember sitting at this pavilion and sensation so loosened up and tranquil. It was a stunning, airy day and I discovered it terribly hard to leave.

Beef Ramen

Hong Kong is a gastronomical paradise. Extra so, if you're a meat-eater. I consume meat occasionally as well as among those events is when I'm on the move or travelling. Of all right stuff I consumed on the island, this beef ramen had me knocked down. It was so flavoursome, I can still really feel the flavours tingling in my mouth.

Hong Kong is a soothing mix of city and also island lives. I do not understand when I'm going to get to travel again but I'm so delighted I have memories of Hong Kong to keep me going up until then.
