Shek-O Beach. Favorite place in Hong Kong. Quiet place away from the city with amazing seafood.
It's been almost three years since our last visit to Hong Kong. This year, Derek and I both took on the epic flight (about 40 hrs round trip including layovers transit time!) from DFW to HKG. Our individual trips overlapped just one day and this my trip. (Derek's will follow in a few days!)
Race night at The Hong Kong Jockey Club in Happy Valley.
Expertly made coffee at The Rabbit Hole. A first floor walk up with a great view from their balcony of the escalators made famous by Wong Kar Wai's Chungking Express (a personal favorite).
View from the other side of The Peak. Worth it just to ride the trolly up the mountain.
Fantastic basement clothing shop next to the Monocle Shop.
Rows and rows of beautiful flower shops leading to...
... Bird Market in Kowloon.
AMAZING tiny vintage and optometry shop in Central across from the phenomenal Yard Bird.
Stanley Market. Famous for their souvenir shopping, but go for the quiet, seaview, and chill vibe.
Fresh fish, meat and veg market in Causeway Bay.
The Pawn. Beautifully converted pawn shop turned awesome restaurant/lounge/bar.
Sunny Dallas. Good to be home.
