⠀I guess one of the most frequent questions, when traveling to Hong Kong for the first time is: where to live - on Hong Kong Island, or in Kowloon, on the mainland.🧐 I’ve read lots of reviews and chose the island, because Ocean Park, Peak Victoria, Wan Chai and etc were nearby. And after noisy Bangkok streets, wanted to have some opposite calming experience - hotel at the bay, with the harbour view. But...😹😹 in reality it appeared that people who are more “megapolis-persons” and enjoy never sleeping city, with tons of shops, cafes, cars, crowds of people and etc - would enjoy living in the heart of the city more. Besides, usually when you’re exploring new location, you barely spend time in the hotel.🤷♀️ So the hotel itself was really gorgeous 😻, but we had to use bus and metro a lot.🙈 Btw, if you chose “the wrong side” eventually - don’t worry, you can easily move between island and mainland by metro, bus or ferry; not a problem at all.👍🏻 Who’s been to Hong Kong? Share your experience of living.😄

Today, I had another Hong Kong first. I hiked from home up to The Peak, the highest point on the island. Buried in the clouds, 552m above sea level and 600 odd stairs and f-tonnes of steep hills, it’s safe to say I’m buggered but really proud of myself for giving one of the harder hikes a crack first. Also another first, I’m a sweaty mess in gym gear at a restaurant ordering wine after a hike, but that’s what we do here in HK cos #culturalimmersion
Also, it wouldn’t be Asia without being able to go into a mall in a rural country park to grab a jacket because for once, it’s freezing.
Then again, maybe I’m just acclimatizing.
