So me and my partner were in Vietnam and long story short we loved the place. We needed to extend our visa’s... well we had a better idea fly out of Vietnam and come back in a few days! Brilliant! So as we were in Da nang we thought great let’s check out flights! So first affordable flight that grabbed my eye was 5nights in Hong Kong. I’d never been and also I had a friend who had lived there for almost 4 years now.
So off we went, with only our small backpacks, as we left our big ones at our hotel in da nang to save on baggage fees (Savvy right!)
We arrived in Hong Kong around midday and headed on the airport express and MTR (underground) to Kowloon. We had booked a hotel called Tempo Inn Cozy mansions. Which naturally was hard to find. As it was on the 4th floor of a tower block. This was the start of a new trend for us. Tower blocks. Everything is in tower blocks. You want a beer, tower block. You want a massage, tower block. You want a, well you get the picture. We opened the door to our double room, no window, a toilet where you must shower presumably on the toilet. But you know what, it was clean it smelled fresh and well it’s Hong Kong space is kinda in short supply. We had a great time walking round Hong Kong. We ate some great Indian Chinese fusion dim sum. Later that evening we headed to Central for a beer and a wine at Beef and Liberty on the 4th floor of some block which obviously we found impossible to find. It was happy hour so wine was only £3 and a beer was £4 so it’s a good deal. We then headed to Takeout comedy Club which was around £25 each but to be honest it was really good and it’s BYO so head to a 7/11 grab some beers and go laugh to some original comedy.
