From traditional street food to modern and glamorous shopping districts, it’s safe to say that Hong Kong has something for everyone. As a former British colony, Hong Kong is a city full of wonders and surprises, with twists and turns at every corner. Traditional tourist attractions include places like the Hong Kong Space Museum, the Yao Ma Tei Tin Hau temple, or else for those who enjoy something a little more thrilling, theme parks like Ocean Park. Ladies’ market at Mong Kok is a popular destination for those who wish to purchase ‘high end’ imitation brands for a much lower price than their genuine counterparts .
Hong Kong is also a great location for those who want to live and earn money. Teaching is a common field for expats to go into, or else it’s also relatively easy to find jobs in the areas of food, hospitality and retail.
Although the usual westernized night life is not as prominent in rural areas like Sheung Shui or Fanling, it is a completely different story in the bigger areas and particularly on Hong Kong Island. Places like Soho are popular for nights out, with plenty of bars and clubs open till late every single night, offering customers lively atmosphere and loud music blaring from all corners. Street food is also popular among locals and tourists alike - one just needs to walk down the streets of Mong Kok to be faced with rows and rows of food stalls with various vendors yelling out different foods you can get at different prices. I always think part of the fun is in trying out the local cuisine when visiting a country, and street markets are a great way to do that. At the end of the day, it can only add to your travel experience!
