YQrtw: Why Hong Kong

Today is the end of my stream of posts of countries I am visiting while on my round-the-world (RTW) trip.

The last stop of RTW is Hong Kong!

Confession: I’ve not been to Hong Kong. [Insert surprised gasp from the audience here.]

In Singapore, Hong Kong, along with Bangkok, seems to be taken for granted as a place everyone has been to. Not sure why these two locations are so popular among Singaporeans.

While I’ve not been to Hong Kong, I have been to Macao. Many people tell me that having been to Macao does not make up for not having been to Hong Kong.

My plan for Hong Kong is simple: Rest, shop and eat.

Since Hong Kong will be my first East Asian stop after many months, I will probably gorge myself with loads of Chinese food. YUMMY!

I was thinking of visiting Tim Ho Wan, dubbed the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world, but after reading The Telegraph article about how horrendous the queue is, I think I’ll pass.

I’ll settle for a regular ole dim sum place and Hong Kong cafe where they serve cheese baked rice and milk tea.

Any Hong Kong eating tips for me?

    1. If you wanna go tim ho wan, you can take a queue number first and then chill out at nearby starbucks for an hour. But I didnt go because firstly I hate queuing, and secondly I dont wanna eat at such a crowded place. I would rather go to a not so busy local coffee shop and enjoy the food slowly.

      1. I totally agree with your plan. I’ll bet almost all of their cafes have good dimsum. yum yum.

    1. You have to go to Australian Dairy Company!!! G/F, 47-49 Parkes Street, Jordan – the scrambled egg toast, the steamed milk, the macaroni with the superbly delicious char siew!!

      It’s a crazy place, small and hectic but yet so nice. I think many places in HK are damn yummy but I really like this one, it’s very different.
