Check these out (if you haven’t) before reading this last post of my Hong Kong 2011 trip:
Hong Kong Day 1: Airport Express, Thematic Lantern Exhibition & Heritage 1881
Hong Kong Day 2: Star Ferry, Man Mo Temple & Gage Street Market
Hong Kong Day 3: Ocean Park
Hong Kong Day 4: Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, Citigate Outlets at Lantau Island & Esprit Outlet

If you noticed, I’ve yet to review our lodging of 5 nights at YMCA of Hong Kong. Read on then.

I wanted to stay at YMCA of Hong Kong (also dubbed The Salisbury) for the longest time. Tried to book ‘the cheapest dormitory room’ before my first trip here but it was fully booked. Tried to book it for my 2nd visit… still no luck. Finally I decided to book the ‘most expensive room’ in YMCA. The Salisbury is not the usual kind of YMCA accommodation (read: shabby). This is one of the very best lodging you can find in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Day 4: Shopping, Avenue Of Stars & Temple Street

Note: Fully loaded with photos!

If you miss my HK trip fun read it here: Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

Our first shopping stop is the ESPRIT outlet located at Hankow Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

This is the place to go for EPSRIT bargain clothing. For e.g. a normal ESPRIT tee will cost about RM100 in Malaysia but only RM40 at this outlet.

I don’t care as long as it’s comfortable.
