Hong Kong Guide

Hong Kong 1-Day Travel Guide, Night Markets, Desert Shops!

Written by Ariel

On an 18 hour layover in Hong Kong, I try to do (especially eat) as much as possible! It was my first time in Hong Kong. Most surprising thing: photographs of the dense skyline don’t do it justice. My hotel room was on the 50th floor, and I could look out the window and see an endless sea of eclectic, skinny skyscrapers. Truly Blade Runner-esque!

The British influence make Hong Kong very friendly to travelers who speak only English. The public transit is great, the food is cheap, and the density of things to do is unmatched.

  • Awesome video Chris, makes me miss Hong Kong!! Really well edited and a great representation of what it's like to walk around! If you're back, I recommend trying Hui Lau Shan for desert – they make fruit-based deserts, kind of a mix between bubble tea and the fluffy ice cream desserts you had – very refreshing on a hot night in Mongkok! Anyway, I'm enjoying your videos – keep it up! =)
