Epic Hong Kong China, continuing my last post with more pictures of life and times in this far east locale. I think I have close to 300 pictures! These are some of the city sights as well as some of the tourist spots…take peek ( may load slowly).
Five Epic Facts About Hong Kong
1.Hong Kong is an Island
2.Hong Kong has its own money, the Hong Kong dollar
3.Hong Kong Chinese speak English and learn it in school
4.Hong Kong has more skyscrapers than any other city in the world
5.Hong Kong has more Rolls Royce’s per person than any other city in the world
I had no expectations for this trip since I have never traveled to Asia or traveled this far, over 16,000 miles round trip. It far exceeded my expectations. Biggest surprise, English is spoken by most of the people we encountered so no language barrier at all. What I didn’t do, eat a lot of local food, one time on the food court at the mall, called Food Opera. It was so nice, like eating in a really modern dining room with fancy chairs and pretty light fixtures. Most of the stalls served Chinese, Japanese, Singaporean, Vietnamese or Thai. The second authentic meal we had was the vegetarian meal at the monastery which was so good. We ate at the hotel restaurant – LaScala, absolutely beautiful, McDonald’s, and Outback …LOL I admit my palate is not sophisticated so I wasn’t ready to try Dim Sum just yet, but we ate really good this trip!
What’s the best dish you have eaten on vacation!
