Happy Birthday to me!!! I decided to spend my birthday weekend in Hong Kong, China this year. I flew out from Seoul on Friday — spent one full day in Hong Kong on Saturday — then returned to Seoul on Sunday. I enjoyed the quick escape and here are some things that I noticed while I was there: — There is an interesting mix of old and new buildings — There are several annoying street men trying to sell watches – suits – and bags on Nathan Street — I saw a good mix of people from different races and heard all kinds of different languages — Most of the people I encountered spoke English very well — The ferry boats are inexpensive and very easy to use. I took a ferry to a nearby island on Sat. — The shuttle train to and from the airport is super easy to use and super convenient. Just a 20 minute ride to and from the city. — The more affordable hotels are very small and not very fancy — Victoria Harbor and Victoria Peak are must do tourist areas — Tea time is very popular in Hong Kong — The taxis are easy to use — I’m not a big shopper — but there are tons of great shopping areas — The air quality is not great — but it’s a fun place to visit for a few days If I have a chance — I would like to return to Hong Kong for a few more days. I would have enjoyed having more time to do more things. There are plenty of things to do and see there. Hong Kong is just a four hour flight from Seoul, and it’s a very affordable trip. I spent just $300 on flight and hotel and $200 on spending money for the weekend (Most of that money went towards transportation for the shuttle train — taxis — and ferry boats). Hong Kong is a great place to go for a few days if you want a complete change of scenery. The night scenes are awesome, and I loved seeing and riding on all the boats. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ 😊 ☺ Check out my pics on InstagramΒ and feel free to ask any specific questions about Hong Kong or my trip. All the pics were taken in the TST area — near Victoria Harbor — and on a nearby island called Mui Wo Island. The island wasn’t the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen — however — it was REALLY nice to escape the city for one full day. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ 😊 ☺ Instagram: KoreanKream
