Travel: Hong Kong on Foot

One thing I often long for in Dubai: the chance to walk along city streets, with no particular aim or purpose, without an intended destination and with the only limitations being my choice of footwear and my need for caffeine.

Sharing some snaps from my trip to Hong Kong with Lauren, where our daily wanders took us to parts of the city old and new, starting at various cute breakfast spots and ending hours later back at our Hong Kong "home".

A matcha latte at Hazel + Hershey, and a bag of coffee beans as a memento.

Victoria Harbour after a nighttime ride on the Star Ferry. 

The Peak on a (relatively) clear day.

Graffti (something I never see in Dubai) in Sheung Wang.

Riding up the Mid-Level Escalator just to walk back down and take the Peak Tram back up again.

Vegetarian Chinese food at Lotus restaurant in Kowloon. Hong Kong isn't the easiest place to eat as a veggie, although I more than happily subsist on avocado toast and M&S sandwiches.

The Big Buddha and the cable car up to it was my enduring memory from my first trip to Hong Kong (aww, 2013 blogging - bless you!) and, pleased to say, I loved it just as much as I remembered.

Have you been to Hong Kong?


  1. Awesome shots! Hong Kong has some amazing scenery, definitely fun to walk around.

  2. Ah I am so desperate to finally visit Hong Kong Lily!

  3. Such beautiful photos. I've not been, but it does look good as a stopover if I ever get to New Zealand...

  4. Wow it looks so beautiful! I'd love to go there one day.
