HK SKYSCRAPERS

hong kong travel

After countless travel-themed posts lately, I am all blogged out about travel. On top of this, I have just returned from a quick-fire round of everything Italy and am getting cosy on my couch editing thousands of those shots between bouts of design work panic. So I wanted to conclude my Hong Kong and travel blogging outpour with some iconic shots of HK architecture. Moral of this particular photographic story: look up; there is so much of the world to discover when…

THINGS IN JARS

Following up only last post, I was out to get acquainted with Chinese culture some more on my Hong Kong visit. When a fried of mine suggested I come along to her doctor’s appointment I was a little confused and a lot surprised. She went on to explain that she is going to a traditional Chinese medicine doctor to get a general health and wellbeing checkup and that it would be great for me to find out more about the…

SAI KUNG

hong kong travel sai kung

The next stop on my Hong Kong getaway list was a Sunday morning drive to Sai Kung in the New Territories. after all the HK summer heat it felt so good to get some wind in my hair and spend the day by the sea. The highlight of the trip was a little restaurant called Honeymoon Dessert, famous for cooking most of its dishes with durian fruit. For the uninitiated, this fruit is the Asian version of marmite. Some people…

CAUSEWAY BAY

Causeway Bay was definitely the best part of Hong Kong for the foodie in me. Incredible dim sum places (and let’s face it, who doesn’t live for good dim sum), great bubble tea sold on every corner and eggettes. Yes, that is a real word, and unfortunately I don’t have a a picture, because I ate them all. But I’m sure google does.…

TEAKHA

Teakha Midlevels Hong Kong Travel Style Form 42

Following up my previous post about Tai Ping Shan, here is a look at that quirky tea house I mentioned. Teakha has it all, from the super cosy feel, ridiculously good looking pastries, some great tea and coffee concoctions, to the coolest of Hong Kong’s young and hip crowd. Put it right up at the top of your HK to-visit list and be sure to check it out because this place is happiness in a teacup.…

THE MIDLEVEL ADVENTURE

midlevels hong kong travel

Hong Kong’s Mid Levels are a truly unique place. I think the best way to describe them is stairs. Stairs, stairs and some more stairs. Not the kind of place you want to find yourself if you are wearing heels. The Mid Levels is a mixture of colourful houses, cascading down Hong Kong’s hills. My favourite part is the hip and alternative area around Tai Ping Shan street, with quirky shops selling art books and design magazines, odd and cool…

HIGHER THAN THE SKY

hong kong travel the peak

Going to the Peak in Hong Kong, was one of the most breathtaking experiences on this trip. I am a creative, a daydreamer; so having my head in the clouds is practically my job description. But metaphors aside, I also like getting my head stuck in real clouds. I love hiking on misty mornings, watching chunks of white cotton candy creep up the mountains and quite literally walking on clouds. And as you hike down, the forest is revealed to you…

CULTURE CURE

hong kong travel temples

   Taking a break from seeing old friends and meeting new ones, I headed to HK’s Yau Ma Tei for a dose of culture. This was where I discovered two thing. Firstly, the temples here, much like those in Tai Ping Shan (which I blogged about here and here), use these magnificent incense coils that burn for a whole week (HK is worn a visit for this reason alone). And secondly, people still ask to take pictures with me because…

GOOD MORNING HK

hong kong tarvel lifestyle

Hey guys. This is a long overdue post from my travels in Asia. This was my first visits to Hong Kong and I loved every second of it. It has been such a welcoming, busy and alive city. Everybody I met has been so helpful, friendly and interesting. I made so many new friends. If the word works on 6 degrees of separation, Hong Kong definitely works on 1. Everyone know everyone. And you realise that the people you met the…
