I wandered around Hong Kong today

This is a big city! And confusing too. I’m glad I have a SIM card for my phone and Google Maps. I walked in a few different directions to get organized and I’m not. I am just going to go wander each day and do what I usually do instead of trying to have some grand plan. Here are a few of the things my Fuji camera saw today.

Hong Kong is kind of confusing with lots of streets, big buildings, and a people all over the place! I found a street where they have cheap noodle joints so will be trying those tomorrow and Saturday. Also found a coffee shop and bakery for tomorrow morning not far from the hotel.

Tomorrow, I will be going in some direction to see some stuff here. Perhaps by the Bay. I’ll start with coffee and then see what I’m gonna do. I only have Friday and Saturday full days to see things and take some photographs. No way to really see a lot of Hong Kong. I did this trip though to just get away and see something different and it was an easy flight from Hanoi airport.

The hotel room is decent and the location is fantastic! Money does not go too far here. I guess I am Vietnam spoiled or something. I stopped at a McDonalds today to eat primarily because I had not eaten all day and I was starving and I could find it. Tomorrow will try one of the cheap noodle places for dinner after walking the city.

I also went to a supermarket here to get some stuff and they had Lays BBQ potato chips all the way from the USofA. So having not had potato chips from the US in awhile, i bought a bag. Now I’m gonna relax the rest of the day and see if the TV works in the room. I don’t stay in real upscale places most of the time. I try to find value for the dollar. This place is decent and I can stay here easily. What I am not paying in room costs I will pay for food.

Anyways, catch all you good people after my day of exploration tomorrow! I’m gonna tke it easy now. I deserve it!

      1. you should try the dim sum at Tim Ho Wan restaurant. It has one “Michelin star” but the price is really cheap. The pork bun is the best.
