Hong Kong Day 1: Airport Express, Thematic Lantern Exhibition & Heritage 1881

Warning: Overloaded with pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

Prologue

I went to Hong Kong during the last few days of Chinese New Year this year. This was my 2nd visit to Hong Kong. What can I say? This place still rocks! Though I have to say there’s 1 big difference I experienced now from 3 years plus ago. Especially in Tsim Sha Tsui area, I was mistaken as a tourist from China because every time I want to order or pay my food/stuff, they would speak to me in Mandarin first. WTH??? Thank God every thing was good elsewhere. If not I would scream man! I no longer feel like I belong there (which I said I once was)

This 6 days 5 nights vacation is sort of a flashpacking trip in terms of accommodation and mode of transportation. Though it’s a 6 days 5 nights trip, we actually only have 4 full days. Our arrival was late evening while our departure from Hong Kong was early morning. Food wise I found some new and good ones and also got a little disappointed from the ones I re-visited. My main aim in Hong Kong this time is to visit one of my childhood dream place and sample more Hong Kong food! So come now, follow me on the joy ride. ๐Ÿ™‚

Our AirAsia flight to Hong Kong was 30 minutes late (biasa la ya). The flight duration from Malaysia to Hong Kong is 3 hours 50 minutes. I got my ticket for RM400 return/pax (inclusive of everything; flight, airport tax, 2 meals, pick a seat & the stupid convenience fee).


This was my first time stepping into Hong Kong International Airport. In my previous HK trip, I flew to Macau first and then later took a ferry to HK.

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. Trousers which normally cost between RM200~RM300 in Malaysia, cost below RM100 in this outlet. So you say cheap or not leh? Theyโ€™re cheap because theyโ€™re out of season clothes. I donโ€™t care as long as itโ€™s comfortable.
