First stop on my trip around the world was Hong Kong. And it is a great place to start, if you ask me. It’s a big city with lots to do, see and experience, but it is also very safe, everyone is helpful and friendly, and most people speak English very well.
Since I only spent 5 days in Hong Kong I only have 2 blog posts for you so far. But if I ever find enough time, there would be much more to write about. If you want to know what I am up to and what posts I publish, subscribe to my mailing list.
There is a LOT to do in Hong Kong. If you have the time I suggest staying more than the 5 days I was there and just really explore all the different neighborhoods. I basically managed to see the highlights, and even missed the great Buddha. An activity for my next visit I guess.
In any case, if you are looking for some fun and interesting activities in Hong Kong, have a look at my Hong Kong like a local guide, including many recommendations from my Hong Kong local Couchsurfing host.
I figured I had no idea what to eat in Hong Kong, and so I signed up for a food tour. Best decision I could have made. In about 3 hours I learned so much about the Hong Kong food culture and actually also Hong Kongs history that I gained a new appreciation for the place.
Did I forget to mention that the food was also delicious. If you want to do a food tour during your visit to Hong Kong, check out the full post with all the necessary information before your trip.

Our first stop on our trip around the world was Hong Kong. I had never been there even though it is only a 4-hour flight away from Japan and it can be reached quite cheaply using LCCs like Hong Kong Express. And the first thing I wanted to do in Hong Kong was a walking […]
