What to do during a 50 hour stopover in Hong Kong? We were pretty tired from all of our traveling (Portland, Seattle, Dubai, Seoul and Taipei in that order) so we decided to be relaxed. We slept in, wandered around, went up to Victoria Peak and found a few vegetarian restaurants. I will be honest; before I went to Hong Kong I thought that it would be a big, dirty, crowded city. I wasn’t very excited to go visit. Instead I discovered a big, bustling and clean city. Yes it was crowded and loud, but it is beautiful, has great restaurants and many things to do. It’s definitely a city full of many sights, sounds and experiences. The only downside was the price, thankfully we had hotel points so were able to stay downtown for free, but we spent a lot on food. We did splurge on our meals by going to a couple very good vegetarian places, so I’m sure it could be done cheaper, but it is an expensive city overall.
We plan on going back for a few more days to explore more.
