Following up on my trip to China that I spoke about here, I take you through my experiences in Hong Kong during the 48 hours I spent there. The things I food and drinks I tried out.
I think I gave my heart to Hong Kong, before I even went to Hong Kong!
Since there aren’t any direct flights at the moment from Bombay to Guangzhou, we took the option of flying to Hong Kong and then doing the train from there to China. So on our way back, we had to follow the same protocol in reverse. We got off the train, Ajay picked up a local sim card and we exchanged some currency to buy MTR tickets.
I think that is the one thing that stood out to me the most about Hong Kong. The ease of getting around on MTR. You can literally, drop your bags off at the Airline counter at the Main MTR station and stroll around town and go through to boarding and departures directly. Of course after clearing immigration. That is such a luxury as a facility.
Here’s a quick travel vlog I put together of our time spent in Hong Kong.
The fashion scene in Hong Kong took me by surprise. Rolex Watches, LV handbags, Burberry Shirts were all over the place. Most youngsters were in sneakers and I saw quite a few Balenciaga Triple S kicks too. All of this continued exposure to consumerism had my “spending-senses” tingling. I knew I did not have any money on me and wanted to hold back, but there were just too many good things that I really wanted to get.
And I guess I only have Ajay to thank for that. He enlightened me with his wise words –
“Better Debt, Than Regret!”
And so, I ended up with a pair of Nike Epic React Element 87, an Off White X Nike Tee and a pair of Crysp Denims. All of them, good buys.
All these pictures were shot on my iPhone 6. I know I say this multiple times, but this phone really is beat-up and I need to buy a new one real quick. If only I can clear my debts first.
Edited on VSCO, as all my iPhone images are.
I will go back to Hong Kong frequently, that much I am sure of. I just need a tour guide to take me around to show me the sights.
Leave a comment and let me know if you have been to Hong Kong and what are the places you would recommend I check out the next time I go there.
