Assalamualaikum & Have a good day peeps~
It had been a while. Iam so lazy to write about my trip to Hong Kong a few months ago. Okay, here I go. Gonna start writing it now. Well, our trip was small only comsists of my parents, my younger brother and I. We booked the flight tickets during AirAsia promo last year. Return tickets cost around RM400+/pax. Quite cheap because the price already includes check-in luggage, meals and seats.
For accomodation, I had booked via Agoda.com. Almost all hotel/hostels in Hong Kong are quite pricey. I chose Ashoka Hostel for 3 nights. I booked a room for 4 persons and costs RM250/night (with double beds in a very small room).(Kau tengok tu hostel pun harga macam hotel) The hostel is located in Chungking Mansion in Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. It's a central area where we could access MTR station easily. The nearest MTR Station is Tsim Sha Tsui station. Avenue of Stars is also located within walking distance.
As soon we arrived at the airport, we took a cab to our hostel. The taxi ride took around 40 minutes to reach the building. The weather was gloomy that day, with grey clouds and occasional light rain.
After checking in and getting some rest in our small room, we started our journey to Mong Kok. We took the MTR to Mong Kok station which is about 4 stations away from Tsim Sha Tsui. My mother really wanted to go to Ladies Market to shop some stuffs for my nieces. Untung kau dik, kecik2 dah dimewahkan dengan mainan oleh nenek. Your uncle is jealous. Hahaha.. The Ladies Market consists of rows of stalls along the street. Lebih kurang pasar malam or uptown jugak la. But this is one long street. She bought some toys and clothes for the kids. Meanwhile, my brother and I bought some t-shirts at quite a reasonable price. One piece cost RM9. Fridge magnets cost RM5 each. Actually can get much cheaper if you know how to bargain well. Please be careful here, the sellers might be rude to you. Bargain if you really want to buy the items, or if you walk away, they will curse you with bad words.
Avenue of Stars
Located just 10 minutes from our hostel, we walked here at dusk and with for the Symphony of Lights show at 8 pm. Come early if you want to stand in front. It was getting crowded when the show started. To bad, it was raining again. Huhuhu.. The show only lasted for 10 minutes or show. Quite an interesting show, there was music and lights around the opposite buildings. We could see some boats and cruises passed by the river as well. After watching the show, my parents walked around the malls around while me and my brother went to Hard Rock Cafe by taking MTR.
Hard Rock Cafe Hong Kong LKF
We stopped at Central Station and walk 15 minutes to the cafe. It is located up the hill thus making the walk very challenging. By the time we reached the Hard Rock Cafe, my body was drenched in sweat. Hahaha.. Thus, I had to rest a while, sat on the bench, took some phote before entering The Rock Shop. The cafe is located in Lan Kwai Fong (LKF). Since I was taking orders from my friends, I came today to survey first and purchased whatever already confirmed. We took a lot of photos inside. T-shirts, pins and magnets.There actually two Hard Rock Cafe in Hong Kong, another one is located at The Peak.
