I almost didn’t include this purely for ubiquitous nature of the photo, just see the image results when googling Hong Kong and you’ll know what I mean. However I can’t deny the beauty of this view from one of many tourist destinations, The Peak, which visitors will ride a 1930s wooden tram for 15 minutes just to take this photo. I also like it for it’s architectural aesthetic. I think it’s only when you view Hong Kong’s cityscape like this, that you realise the density of the buildings, something you might not realise at ground level.

One of the many reasons for venturing to Yuen Long a quiet suburb, was to track down this building. It used to be a secondary school, attended by my dad, but since the school closed in the 80s, it became abandoned, and is now used as a film location for horror flicks (theres a film school across the road). He'd not seen this building since he teenage education, so the fact that I went there meant a lot to him. Most buildings of this ilk in Hong Kong have been knocked down and turned into modern flats, so when my Dad saw this photo, he was glad that it's still in tact, despite it's condition.

Ok so I know this is the third food post but typically the reason for going on holiday is eat well. This is probably my favourite meal of all time, hot pot, or what I like to call, "Hotch Potch" is huge cauldron of soup stock in the middle of the table, where you order endless plates of raw meats, seafood, vegetable and noodles to cook yourself, at your own pace. My stomach welcomes this warming meal most during London's colder months, but the sheer choice and freshness of ingredients on offer in Tao Heung means there's always room for Hotch Potch even in Hong Kong's warm humid climate.

Hong Kong is a city of convenience, as you're never more than 100 metres away from a newspaper stand (sort of like a mobile newsagent). In some of the oldest streets of Central/Wan Chai, you'll find these types of metal kiosks each specialising in one service; key cutting, shoe shine, even Chinese pharmaceuticals. However this bright blue Stamp Kiosk was something I'd never seen before, a middle aged lady waiting to carve traditional chinese ceramic stamps as well as western rubber ones. Convenient or just random?

Located on the east coast of Kowloon, Sai Kung's restaurants offer the largest variety of seafood than any establishment in town. Chuen Kee is one of the more renowned places, with 2 brands on the pier. All the sea creatures are usually in water tanks, where diners can to pick their meal, but also acts as a attraction for passers-by. This giant squid caught my eye, too bad I didn't get to eat it.
