This post was shot back in May, when I got the chance to explore Hong Kong. A couple of people asked me about the places I visited while I was there, especially the places I shopped from. It’s taken me a really long time to put this post up. I could come up with a million excuses, but honestly, laziness got the best of me.
Dress : Forever 21, Shoes : Causeway Bay street stall, Necklace : Colaba, Umbrella : Bossini
I was in Hong Kong for just a week and I tried to make the most of my trip. So here I’m sharing with you some shopping places and restaurants with yummy food. This outfit was shot at the Avenue Of Stars, which is on the Victoria Harbourfront. The place is an absolute delight to visit if you enjoy long walks by the bay. I even got to see the biggest cruise ships and was pretty fascinated! I went for a very basic look that day, and wore a comfortable maxi dress with a black statement necklace.
No trip to Hong Kong is complete without a visit to Disneyland, Ocean Park and Madame Tussauds, but here’s some other places you can go to as well! For shopping, the first place you should definitely go to is Causeway Bay. You can submerge yourself in 5 storeys of Forever 21 goodness there! Also, the street shopping there has very chic and affordable pieces. Canton Road in Kowloon has almost all the brands, right from H&M to Louis Vuitton! You can go to IFC mall as well, but somehow, I preferred Canton Road. If you’re looking for cosmetics and beauty products, then you have to go to Sasa! You can find a Sasa store almost every 3 blocks all over the city! I have also heard a lot about the night markets, but sadly couldn’t visit them this trip. Make sure to check out Maple, which is a local brand that has pretty cute clothes and shoes!
For food, Gaylords of course, has the yummiest Indian food! Since I’m a vegetarian, my food options were a little limited. Herbivores in Causeway Bay is one of the best vegetarian restaurants I’ve been to! Just around Herbivores is a little stall that serves the most delicious bubble tea. Also, MCDonald’s had apple pie, which was sadly discontinued in India! If you’re looking for a place with sheesha, you can go to Vibes at The Meera Hotel near Tsim Tsa Shui. The ambience is surreal!
So, if you’re planning a trip abroad, Hong Kong is definitely a fun place to visit, and you don’t even need a visa to get there!
