HongKong – The Best Way To Start Exploring Asia?
HongKong Asia Travel – Five days in Hong Kong don’t seem enough. Once you finally succeed (and believe me even for a surprising little island, this is more difficult for you to realize). And once you visit most of the main tourist attractions; Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront, Victoria Peak, beautiful and aromatic flower markets in Kowloon and the bird market (although a little nervous when we travel there only a year after the bird flu outbreak!) You still want more.
Although Hong Kong is an Asian country that is very different from where I used to be. After traveling to less developed Asian countries, this is definitely Asia but with far more difficult advantages. As you might expect, evidence of British occupation is everywhere. All signs of information are written in English and Cantonese and even apart from SoHo’s main ex-pat congregation area. There are still an increasing number of Western restaurants and shops. Marks and Spencer, who? All of this makes the island feel familiar and of course it’s easier to travel.
Shopper’s paradise HongKong Asia Travel
The shopping and food choices are amazing, I don’t think I’ve seen a place that is so obsessed with consumerism. You can’t fail to be impressed by the many designer shops and even if that’s not what you like, there are many of the smallest boutique malls with original designs from Asian fashion students (although unfortunately because of the high above average westerners I don’t do it. standing a chance in hell ever into one of the clothes, still good to see).
In addition to the haze and crowds (nearly 7 million people call the house an area of 1100 square km). This place still has extraordinary natural beauty and on the way to Repulse Bay and Lamma Island we see alternatives to Hong Kong. Which attract many nature. lovers, pedestrians and climbers every year. In my opinion, Hong Kong is an exciting travel destination and will take you wherever you go. This will also be a perfect way to start exploring Asia.
Highlights of Hong Kong and Kowloon
270 degree panoramic view above the harbor, stylish decor and creative cocktails at the Excelsior Hotel’s Talk of the Town restaurant.
Avoid crowds and people trying to sell fake goods to you in the Kowloon shopping district.
Give and really buy lots of fake items at the Night Market on Temple Street.
Admire the amazingly clean, modern, efficient and … public transportation system. You will make comparisons with our old, trashy public transportation and you will feel jealous and hard to do.
Shop at Jumbo SOGO, a large Japanese-style department store – 13 floors of retail paradise!

Hong Kong and Kowloon: The Lowdown
Hong Kong is an island located on the southern coast of China, 37 miles east of Macau across the Pearl River Delta. It is surrounded by the South China Sea and has a humid subtropical climate. Summer (June – August) is hot and humid with occasional rain and storms and winter (Mid December – February) feels cooler but still cool. Spring (March – May) and September Autumn (Mid-December) are usually the best times to visit. Hong Kong is a large city with several districts and Kowloon is a large peninsula on mainland China, just north of Hong Kong Island. Where to stay
We stayed at Metropark Hotel Causeway Bay which is a large and very comfortable hotel in a fairly central location near Victoria Park.
