Hong Kong was the last stop on my whirlwind through Asia, I cannot even begin to express to you the absolute REGRET that I feel about the lack of pictures I took there. Yes, I was tired and catastrophically hungover. Still, I should have taken more pictures!
Frankly, I’m embarrassed.
From now on, whenever we go on vacay, let’s force ourselves to take at least one picture every hour that we’re awake. Sometimes you think a picture will be absolute garbage, and it turns out to be the perfect photo that encapsulates the whole trip. You just never know, so it’s better to be safe and take 1,000 pictures. Don’t you think?
It doesn’t help that Big Boy’s lens wasn’t screwed on right, so all the pictures I took with him turned out blurry. Oh well! They’re impressionistic.
So, anyways, Hong Kong is the best place on Earth. Shelby and I kept looking at each other and shouting, “THIS IS LIT!” Think New York meets Asia with tropical weather. It was hot, humid, crowded, and totally crazy. We loved it.
We arrived around 1 in the morning and took the train into Central Hong Kong. Clearly, we chose the wrong path, and we had to haul our heavy suitcases up flight after flight of stairs to reach the Mini Hotel Central. We’re not used to humidity, and we were dying when we finally reached our hotel.
The Mini Hotel REALLY lives us to its name. That’s barely a double bed right there. The only way we could have privacy is if the other person just looked away. It was…intimate. But it was a GREAT deal and very clean. Can you really complain?
Our first stop was taking the tram up to Victoria Peak. Unfortunately, it was incredibly cloudy that day, so we couldn’t see anything from the Peak. Oh well.
We ate some INCREDIBLE food in Hong Kong. Mostly soups, because it rained so much.
At night we visited the Highest Bar in the World, and then cruised around the bar scene. I have never been any place so crazy in my life. Since it was Thursday, it was “Ladies’ Night” at many bars. Usually that means drink specials for women, but in Hong Kong that means free drinks. No catch, just free! OBVIOUSLY we drank too much and ended up in a dance battle on the street. I mean, who wouldn’t?
Unfortunately, we made the mistake of live broadcasting our hijinks. Since it was about 3 in the afternoon in the United States, all our friends and family watched as our night went completely off the rails. We woke up at 8 the next morning to delete our Snapstories, but it was too late. Sorry, everyone. I now realize that I am NOT Beyoncé.
I would like to return to Hong Kong ASAP. I might even like to live there for a bit.
So, that wraps up my trip to China and Hong Kong! We only scratched the surface, really. I can’t wait to visit again!
