Sending a few postcards from the bustling city of Hong Kong. To me, this is a city that completely immerses you in a new culture as soon as you land. The buildings, the streets, the signs, the sounds, and even the smells are different. It’s humid, it’s busy, but at the same time the people are calm and always polite. Depending on where you travel in Hong Kong there’s usually no sign of language barriers and once your body adjusts to the climate you instantly start to enjoy everything this city has to offer, specifically the shopping, food and nightlife.

Perhaps our favourite highlight of the trip was visiting Tim Ho Wan – the cheapest Michelin Star Restaurant in the world. A table full of Dim Sum for four people was a mere $25 AUD and the food seemed to never end. My suggestion? Make sure you order the pork buns (I preferred to have 1-2 as a substitute for dessert as they’re quite sweet) and rice paper rolls. Mouth-watering good.
