A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part IV, Import Goods

Update: 12.1.2018An up-to-date guide to finding niche Japanese Anime/pop culture goods in Hong Kong is now available. Spent some time going around the stores to see if I could find some of the import goods I was planning to order online before I left for Hong Kong. Just get off at Causeway Bay and you'll find an exit that connects to the...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part III, Ngong Ping 360

The next place I wanted to visit was the Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride which leads to the temples and the Tian Tan Buddha Statue. It was already up the last time I was here but was very much plagued with problems so I never went the last time. This time I decided to go because it had new "crystal glass" bottom cabins and thought it should be...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part II

One of the things about Hong Kong is there are fairly much at least one single shopping plaza at each underground station.

You can use it for all the main...


Flight to Hong Kong 2009

You now have to make your way through a big car park complex surrounding the main building before you can get inside after the terror attack. Inside, half of it is sealed off by the bridge where you used to be able to access the shops so...


Leaving for Hong Kong Soon

I will be leaving for Hong Kong on some business and will be there for two weeks so during that time, I will most likely not be making any posts unless I find somewhere to access the internet because the place I'm staying won't have any. If I can't find any, I'll just have to have all the posts prepared offline and post them when I return. With...


Tadaima~! Back in the UK and to Work Again

Public transport is also much cleaner, convenient an you won't catch people smoking on the upper deck of buses - something you can't avoid here without sticking to the lower deck. There's an underground station nearly everywhere and with an Octopus card, you don't have to rummage for change on almost any transport. Don't expect any...
