An Exciting Account of Travelling in Hong Kong

Fun? Well, what better place than Hong Kong. Hong Kong becomes the third international travel destination and the third part of this travel series!

Hong Kong – June 2012

Age – 9 years

As Hong Kong is a city, I will be mentioning locations rather than points of locations!

Location 1: Temple Street Market

The “Poor Man’s Night Club” or today’s Temple Street Night Market was named after Yaumatein Tin Hua Temple, this heritage market was first organized in the 1920s when hawkers and vendors gathered out on the temple gate to sell food and provisions. The scope for a bargain in this market is phenomenal, if you are someone who doesn’t always like the suggested price then you’ll love to put on your bargain game on the Temple Street Night Market, Hong Kong. The street is continuously bustling with people and music and makes it a great visit in the evenings

Yet what stands out to me the most about the market was the absolutely delicious food its restaurants served.On the north stretch of the road from Kansu Street, a massive food festivity begins at 4 pm every day till midnight. Temple Street Night Market has a lot to offer, from traditional Chinese food to Cantonese food, seafood, and continental food, everything is available right on the street.

Location 2: Sky 100 Hong Kong

Sky100 is the 7th tallest commercial building – an inside observation deck located 393 metres above sea level on the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre. The best time to visit Sky100 would be late afternoon on a clear day so you can see the amazing Hong Kong skyline during daylight, dusk and all lit up once the evening arrives.

From the deck, Icould see all along Hong Kong Island from Quarry Bay to Causeway Bay to Wan Chai to Admiralty to Central to Sheung Wan and to Kennedy Town. I could also look straight across to Victoria Peak as well as look straight down and see the Star Ferries sailing across the harbour from Central. I think the most interesting part was I noticed an underwater bridge when I suddenly saw a bridge and cars on it suddenly disappear…. The mystery was surreal at first!!

Location 3: Floating Restaurants

Jumbo Restaurant is one of the world’s largest floating restaurants and a great tourist attraction in HK. It’s ornately decorate in an Oriental fashion and has been home to several celebrities and people of honour! It can accommodate more than 2300 people so it can get noisy at time but the food is absolutely scrumptious! I mean, they do charge a lot so they are bound to serve really good meals!

Location 4: Disneyland Hong Kong

This was my first ever Disneyland visit and that too at the age of 10, so you can indubitably guess how much I enjoyed the trip! It was loads of fun and a hell of a day! Although, I messed up by forgetting both my cap and sunglasses at the hotel so I was squinting throughout the day!

Despite that, there were several rides, amusement rides, and trips, rollercoasters, amazing food, themed parks, boat rides, and what not – which if I begin listing would never end! Yet, I have to mention the fireworks they do before closing the park – it is a delight for the eyes. It is colorful, vibrant, mesmerizing and an amazing moment to capture if you have a taste for photography!

Although by obvious means, we were unable to make a complete tour – it was a complete blast and I enjoyed myself to the fullest!

Location 5: Madame Tussauds Hong Kong

Madame Tussauds is the first wax museum in Asia located on Hong Kong’s highest point, Victoria Peak! This was my first visit to Madame Tussauds and it was so much fun that it almost gave Disneyland a run for their money! From Bollywood stars to prominent musicians – it was home to almost all renowned figures. As young as I was, I barely knew most people there as they were contemporary artists to me and there were barely any youngsters but I mean, who misses a shot with the only and only Shah Rukh Khan!!

Best Moment:
