I recently re-visited Hong Kong in the summer, and it was good to be back after 5 years! It honestly feels like my second home, and it was great to see my other relatives and friends again who live there. Hong Kong is such a vibrant city with lots of things to see and do, so if you’re planning to visit it one day, here are some of my recommendations on where to visit!

Home to some of the big-name designer brands, it is a shopping paradise. There are so many malls and restaurants, as well as rooftop bars dazzling cityscape. If you venture a little further you will find the largest public park in Hong Kong Island and also the large Hysan shopping mall.

Another one of Hong Kong’s most popular markets, including Ladies’ Market and many other shopping streets. Mong Kok has entire street sections that are dedicated to sneakers, flowers, kitchenware, goldfish and birds. They also have a lot of street food! You can pick up the latest Japanese fashion and accessories at Shantung Street and Dundas Street, Etude House for Korean makeup products, and if you want to shop indoors you can head over to Langham Place.

Also known as the ‘back garden of Hong Kong’, Sai Kung is great for those who love adventure, nature, outdoors and photography! There are many beautiful scenic spots, beaches, hiking trails and fishing villages if you want to get out of the urban jungle for a while. There are also many seafood restaurants that serve a variety of seafood dishes – check out the floating seafood market where the local fisherman sell fresh catches of the day!
