Hong Kong

It’s been forever since I last posted but I have an excuse- I have been working & travelling. I’m currently in Hong Kong, I went to Korea a couple of weeks ago which I’ll do a separate post about. Anyway, Hong Kong is still as beautiful as I last remember it. I’m glad not much has changed since I would have been really disappointed otherwise because afterall, Hong Kong is probably my favourite place, ever.

When the plane landed in Hong Kong, I was almost in tears. From the slightly polluted air (HAHA, I KNOW) to the beeping noises of Octopus Cards at 7-11, nostalgia followed me everywhere. Then, when we finally headed back to our home, things sure looked different. I was definitely shorter and smaller when I came back 3 years ago, either that, or my room shrank a lot over the years. 

But don’t you worry, nostalgia can’t drag me down. My sister, her boyfriend and I headed to Disneyland the second we put down our bags at home. This might sound ridiculous but we bought a yearly membership there. Although we would only be here for 3 months, we did the math and it was worth it (I have already been 5 times, so I guess we were right). 

Hong Kong Disneyland is a real beauty. A lot of people who visit there complain because the park is smaller compared to other ones across the world. However, as someone who grew up always having a yearly pass to Disney and lived almost right next to it, it’s hard to see any flaws in such a magical place. My favourite ride is still Space Mountain, it’s so pretty inside, you won’t even believe it (Well, I guess you would if you've been). The new ride Mystic Manor is also a must go, the backstory is adorable and the ride is to die for. I plan on returning at least twice more before I leave? So yup, money on that yearly pass was well spent.

Besides Disneyland, I have also visited a ton of tourist attraction in Hong Kong. Just to list a few, the Hong Kong Observatory Wheel (Not as high as the High Roller in Las Vegas which I went on last year, but the view of Central is amazing), Hello Kitty Dim Sum (Everything there was so cute!), Mong Kok (Definitely one of my favourite places overall), Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car (Another must-visit for an amazing view) & the Big Buddha (<3). Another place I loved was Causeway Bay. It is stunning at night especially because I love love love lights in the night time, and Causeway Bay has just that.

Anyway, I am about to head for lunch with my family. I hope you guys enjoyed the update and I’m so grateful to have such an amazing start to my Summer! I am excited to keep exploring Hong Kong. :)
