48 Hours in Hong Kong: A Photo Journal






My first trip of the year was to Hong Kong for a weekend to catch Phoenix in concert (which I flailed about here. Best concert everrrr!). It was a short trip but a memorable one. There's something to be said about chill weekend solo trips - there's very little preparation to be made (for this one, it consisted of me cramming my booking for accommodations) and very little luggage to be packed (especially as I didn't pay for check-in luggage).

There's also something very liberating about a no-itinerary trip. There were only three things on my to-do list for this Hong Kong weekender: (1) find the mythical Prada outlet of urban legend; (2) attend the concert; and (3) eat, eat, eat.

Pictures from the trip under the cut. I actually went to Hong Kong again two weeks ago, for another weekender, and maybe I'll post about it soon.

Where is your favorite weekend getaway?




Urban Pack Hostel is conveniently located across the street from the Tsim Sha Tsui station. It's a great place to stay if you're traveling solo and are looking to meet new people!

Saliva Chicken Rice! Believe it or not, I ordered it because of its very weird (and kind of gross) name.

Gateway to Prada heaven.


I found it! A bunch of other people did too, apparently. Guess it's not a very well-kept secret. The bus ride and 30-minute wait was worth the discount on my first ever (and most likely last) Prada though. There was also a Marc by Marc Jacobs outlet store nearby. I'll write about my outlet shopping adventures soon.

Dumpling Yuan in Central. Their pork and leek dumplings were awesome! But according to OpenRice, it's already closed. :(

Home for the weekend.



PHOENIX!

Stunning sky line

I've never seen a place quite like Hong Kong. The contrast between the glass and steel and the green of the mountains in the background is simply stunning...the whole place is a modern marvel and it only gets better as it gets dark and the lights come on. I can see why this is rated the best skyline in the world. Incredible.
