Summer isn’t over in my favourite city in Asia! I was invited by the Hong Kong Tourism Board last week to enjoy a 4-day stay in Hong Kong. I know I always go here multiple times a year (whether it be with my family/friends or for work) but it was different this time around because I was able to go to some spots and restaurants I’ve never been before. I really had fun during my stay regardless of the number of times I’ve visited this wonderful place.
We stayed at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong located at 5 Connaught Road in Central. If you love going to busy streets and going out at night (LKF is the place to be), this is the perfect location for you because it’s all walking distance from my favourite restaurants, malls and pubs.
We had lunch at Man Wah located at the 25th floor of Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong. It’s a Michelin star Cantonese restaurant that serves really good local and regional specialties. The best part? They have an awesome dining space and a view too!
Of course, our day won’t be complete without some shopping at Harbour City at Tsim Sha Tsui. I swear, my sister Liz knows the entire area by heart. She even told me the new stores that opened inside the mall. Yes, that’s the stylist in her talking.
We dropped by so many shops, including Jo Malone where they taught us how to mix two perfumes together to create a more personal scent. We even got a very relaxing hand massage using some of their best seller lotions.
Snack time! We went to Dalloyau where they served us yummy pastries and drinks so we can relax and chill. Everything on the table was so picture worthy too! To be honest, they were too pretty to eat. Haha.
Of course, our night wouldn’t be complete without a drink or two at the Ozone Bar located at the 118th floor of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. It’s the highest bar in the world and is an ideal location if you want to have good cocktails and great conversation with friends. The view will definitely make your night extra special.
The next day, we went to Atum Desserant, a new dessert restaurant located on the 16th floor at L. Square, no 459-461 Lockhart road. This is the place to go for dessert addicts like me who love trying unconventional dishes. The owner of the place actually did a 10-minute live art dessert dish for us that consisted of fresh fruits, shaved ice, puddings, dried yoghurt, honey comb, ice cream and more.
In the making.
They also served us liquid nitrogen ice cream! Cool right?
More about the rest of my Hong Kong trip on my next posts, but for now, I hope you liked the first part of my travel diary. BMS.
