This was our first time going to hong kong, well never heard a lot about hong kong but this was actually a business meeting so we turned it to a good 3 day vacation.Hong kong is one of those cities where no one talks about it. I mean yes its an urban jungle, but there is a culture for the city infused with the urban jungle.The place was regulated by the british for so long that there is British influence and the authentic chinese influence in their culture.Anyway.. without further delay lets dive in.
Day 1:- we arrived at the hong kong airport around noon, the first thing we did was to get some lunch at an indian restaurant called Central Indian Restaurant. This was food was average but it was a much needed boost. We headed towards our hotel , it was called Royal Plaza hotel.It was a 5 star hotel and i totally recommend it to get it if you are travelling with family.Anyway we went to our rooms dumped our suitcases, freshned up a bit and hit the evening/ night bazaar to do some shopping. Though i wouldn't say that the shopping was cheap in comparison to bangkok but in comparison to the other places in hong kong , it was pretty cheap. Anyway we bought some souvenirs and some tshirts and went ahead to dinner at a local McDonald's, which to my surprise was very good and called it a day.https://www.google.com/travel/hotels/royal%20plaza%20hotel%20hong%20kong/entity/CgsIuKW497-r86ybARAB?g2lb=2502548%2C4258168%2C4271059%2C4306835%2C4317915%2C4322823%2C4328159%2C4330862%2C4371335%2C4401769%2C4419364%2C4424916%2C4429192%2C4433754%2C4434233%2C4436127%2C4443999%2C4270859%2C4284970%2C4412693&hl=en&gl=in&un=1&q=royal%20plaza%20hotel%20hong%20kong&rp=ELiluPe_q_OsmwEQuKW497-r86ybATgCQABIAcABAg&ictx=1&utm_campaign=sharing&utm_medium=link&utm_source=htls&hrf=IgNJTlIqFgoHCOQPEAoYBRIHCOQPEAoYBhgBKAA
Day 2:- The next day we had complementary breakfast at the hotel and started the city tour , starting with mineral museum which was a total disappointment , it was just a bait to sell u stuff we went there coz some locals said us to. Well after wasting money and time, we went ahead to the one of the tallest buildings in the world called "SKY 100". well i totally recommend this place, the views were breathtaking and if you are daring enough you can even do the bungee jumping from there. You can see the entire city from the glass box and take some really cool pictures. Anyway we spent a lot of time in there and it was almost 6 pm and we walked around the city just for leisure till our hotel and had our dinner on the way there.when walking through the busy streets of hong kong you can feel the life in the fast lane up there and the world running past you like in those movie in slow motion.https://www.google.com/search?gs_ssp=eJzj4tLP1TdIT7csM4o3YLRSNagwNjEwMTCwNDQ0STNPTk1KsjKoMEs0TU2zNE00SbM0NzUwNfASLM6uVDA0MFDIyM9LV8gGEgCbDBOT&q=sky+100+hong+kong&oq=sky+1&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j46l2j0.2851j0j4&client=ms-android-samsung-gs-rev1&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8#trex=m_t:lcl_akp,rc_f:nav,rc_ludocids:7664837782108852304,rc_q:Sky%2520100%2520Hong%2520Kong%2520Observation%2520Deck,ru_q:Sky%2520100%2520Hong%2520Kong%2520Observation%2520Deck,trex_id:o92ty
Day 3:- we were excited about today because we planned the entire day for the madame Tussauds Wax museum. This was the first time we ever visited a wax museum. We gobbled up our breakfast at the hotel and went to the museum. First were taken in a train to the museum which was on the top of hill or something. The train ride was around 30 mims and it was pretty dope. We entered the main entrance and well we got lost in the mesmerising museum and in time. After the museum there were a lot of souvenirs for shopping and we got ourselves a cast of our hands in wax, of our family.Thats it that was our whole day, i dont even remember what we ate coz we got so lost in the museum.
Day 4:- Today was also an exciting day as it was "DISNEYLAND DAY"!! This was also ny first time visiting Disney land and being an adult i was still excited. We took the bus to Disneyland and got a room in the hotel "HOLLYWOOD HOTEL" and then headed towards the actual disney land and well what else there is to say about disney land . IT WAS MAGIC , we had our lunch in the park itself , like there was plent of food inside and we just ate. I got almost every good ride and was pumped and in the evening saw the fireworks show and headed back to the hotel. We were about to get dinner in the buffet system but we were too exhausted and just got some pizza instead and crashed hard.
Day 5:- after enjoying so much, unfortunately it was time to leave, like any good thing this also had to come to an end and we left to home.
Ps:- i wouldn't recommend driving in hong Kong amd the public transport is awesome and very convenient. And also knowing a bit of mandarin/ cantonese would be a great benefit.
