Hong Kong

Before booking our 3-week trip we considered quite a few things such as the weather, the air quality, availability of organic produce and the popularity for tourists. Hong Kong is a very popular destination for almost any nation, almost everyone speaks English in Hong Kong which makes traveling there very convenient. Most visiter come from China to Hong Kong. We wanted to avoid the big crowds and wouldn’t have gone during the summer. It is also pretty hot during this time here. In the autumn, the typhoon is raging over Hong Kong, not the best time to go either. Going during the Winter was the best time for us: amazing weather in Hong Kong and super bad weather back home in Germany. We went in the middle of November and stayed into the first week of December.

Getting Around in Hong Kong

Getting Around in Hong Kong
Hong Kong has an amazing public transportation system and you can get anywhere, including from and to the airport.
We would totally recommend to get an Octopus card at the airport and one way ticket from the airport to the city. In the city, you can use your Octopus card for the metro, the busses, the tram, and the ferry. The airport ticket is cheaper than the octopus cart for the airport ride though. When we first arrived in Hong Kong, we managed to get as far into the city with the train as possible, but then were not able to find a bus stop and we didn’t have the octopus card yet, no one told us to get one :) So we didn’t want to run around the station with our bags searching for the right bus for hours and tried to catch a taxi, which wasn’t easy. At the central station, they pick up passengers in one spot and we couldn’t find it either. We just used our uber app and got a nice ride to our Airbnb. We never took a cab in Hong Kong, the uber cars seemed cleaner and were stress-free.

Wifi

Buy your Sim Card directly at the airport or at a 7-Eleven. A Sim Card for the phone is the most convenient way to have internet access on the go. Xout apartment or hotel room will have some free wifi for sure for the heavy surfing, but on the go, you will be lost without your own internet. You won’t be able to find the next MRT station, to call you Uber driver, to get to the next incredible instagram photo spot.


Hotel or apartment in Hongkong

We were planning on staying for 3 weeks so we thought an apartment would be better for us as we like to have a kitchen to prep a salad or something. We found besides airbnb and site that offers serviced apartments for short or long periods of time. It’s called metroresidences.com we didn’t end up using it, but it’s worth checking out. We had 2 Airbnb apartments and were pretty disappointed with both of them. They were super small, not clean, cluttered with personal stuff, smelly and not a great value overall even in Hong Kong. If you are booking over Airbnb, we would definitely recommend to only book a superhost. Location-wise, we loved staying in Soho and would look for a place in that area should we come back to Hong Kong.

Best Travel bags

Free in Hong Kong

We were so amazed to find that so many, especially cultural events were free. Every museum we went to was free. But even major attractions like the Big Buddha or the Victoria peak are free except for the ride with the bus, you don’t have to take the expensive train or the cabin. Hong Kong is definitely one of the cities where you don’t have to take a guided touristy bus tour. Just hop on that double-decker bus whatever and drive around, get off and take a different one back. The same with the double-decker tram, how amazing are those. Also, the ferry is magical especially by night and almost free. And of course, the selfies you will take here are amazing and free.

Big Buddha by Crystal Cabin

It’s a pretty popular tourist attraction in Hong Kong and we didn’t want to miss out on it. I was a little opposed to the trip at first, I didn’t want it to turn into a whole day event and I also didn’t want to hang out there in the brightest sun, no way to get a good picture. We took a cable car around 3 pm and went back around 6 pm and had the maximum fun for a not too substantial time investment.

Who is the Big Buddha?

Big Buddha is a part of the Po Lin Monastery, a huge Buddha statue on the Lantau Island a 25 min ride from Tung hung Town Center MTR station.

What is the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car?

Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery

How much is it to take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car?

It depends on the type of cabin you choose. You will get a discount if you preorder your ticket online beforehand. It is It is definitely recommended to buy the ticket online to skip the ticket line. There are 2 more lines though, the ticket redemption line and the waiting line for the cabin.

Is it worth to take the Crystal Cabin if you take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car?

Going back

We went just in time to catch the last cabins around 6 pm. The lane for the crystal cabis was much shorter than the one for the standard cabin, so we were lucky to have the crystal cabin round trip ticket.

If you find the cabins too expensive, you can take a bus for far less, the bus 23 is around 20 HKD and will take 50min. Hiking is also an option and will take 3 h across the mountains. We didn’t try these options through this time, but hiking there is definitely on the list.

GREENWOODS RAW CAFE Store

This shop is attached to the Greenwoods Raw Cafe in the center of Hong Kong. They sell some organic fruits and veggies, the availability really depends on the season and the day of the week. We found some great raw products here like raw nut butter, raw dates, and organic raw nuts.

GREENWOODS RAW CAFE Store

There was some fruit like organic bananas, apples and dragon fruit, organic bell pepper, orgaic cucumber and greens. Also organic lemons. More fruit like oranges, coconuts and dates in the fridge.

They had a 5 years celebration and therefore everything was 20% off. Here are some beauty products, organic spices and organic nuts.

Tai Kwun Contemporary – JC Contemporary

Tai Kwun Contemporary is a new gallery showcasing impressive modern art and it is free to the public.
The building itself is incredible, the concrete spiral staircase is modern, the art rooms spacious and inviting.

2 movies were showcased, on was instantly captivating, La Town, a dystopian vision of a town in the future. The other movie showcased the life in the prison, the cinema theatre was equipped with prison-like bunk beds for the maximum immersion into the story.

Staying in Hong Kong for 3 weeks, we had to visit the first and only raw vegan restaurant in Hong Kong on the Hong Kong Island. We liked most of the food and think you should try it out.

Greenwoods raw cafe

Greenwoods raw cafe Hong Kong Island

The Greenwoods raw cafe is easy to find if you have google maps on your iPhone and know that you have to look for a building where you have to take the elevator up to the 13th floor. There is no sign on the building, you have to find it by the address.

We ordered the menu and a la card. There is a daily special for the menu and we were lucky, Saturday seems to be the day with more options overall.

Greenwoods raw cafe

The menu

We took the set menu, there were not many options otherwise. We got one menu with the soup and the other with the non-fried vegies. The menu was 16,71€/148 HKD.

Greenwoods raw cafe

Green smoothie

Banana, apple, spinach, lime leaf.

The smoothie (5,08€/45 HKD) was delicoius, I loved it. The consistancy and the taste was great. Lemony fresh, but creamy.

Greenwoods raw cafe

Chinese yam chia congee with dim sum

Chia, coconut, miso, kimchi, corn.

The soup was surprisingly delicousa and not the usual smoothie-in-the-bowl dish. Savoury and creamy, a little slimy maybe due to the chia and coconut.

Greenwoods raw cafe

Greenwood Sandwich

Raw bread, avocado, raw mayo, veggies.

The bread was amazing, made with nuts and coocnut flour, super fluffy and airy. The mayo could have had a little more flavor, the vinegar taste was a little too much. The sandwich overall worked super well and was a nice size for one person.

Greenwoods raw cafe

Greenwoods raw cafe

Salad

Lettuce, dressing, cracker.

The salad (9,94€/88HKD) was fresh and yummy, the dressing was great and the toppings flavorful.

Greenwoods raw cafe

Additionally to the menu

Greenwoods raw cafe Hong Kong Island

Non fried veggies

Bell pepper, egg plant, cauliflower.

The non-freid veggies (8,8€/178HKD) don’t deserve a mention imo, no taste, mushy wet texture, abslutely non-tasty green bell pepper and egg plant. Absolutely overpriced and not worth it.

Greenwoods raw cafe

Kimchi

Cabbage, sea weed, carrots, lettuce.

The kimchi (5,42€/48HKD) had the potential of being very good, but for my taste not fermented enough at all, quite “raw” and flavorless. It wasn’t too salty, which was great, but absolutely not for me.

Greenwoods raw cafe

Raw cake

Cake roll with cashew and coocnut cream.

The cake (11,07€/98HKD) was very special and delicous. We were told it’s pricy bacuase it’s all organic, I find the price absolutely justified, however, I don’t believe it’s all organic, organic berries are very expensive and this restaurant is not certified organic. The berries are the first thing a restaurant would try to save on. I am not emplying the possibility doesn’t exist to get all organic ingredients in Hong Kong, even berries, it’s just unlikeley for a restaurant to do it 100% of the times.

Greenwoods raw cafe

Greenwoods raw cafe Hong Kong Island

Coffee Cake

Cashew cream with cooc sugar, almond date base.

This cake (6.55€/58 HKD) was very delicoius and a perfect size for a raw cake. The consistancy was a little too firm, more like a chocolate bar, could be softer for sure.

Menu

The menu is relatively small but changes daily, so it’s enough to choose from if you come here once but fun enough if you come regularly.

Hygiene

We arrived right at the opening on a Saturday, we had a nice chat with the owner and were about to order as the runny nose of a lady who explained to us the menu (probably the owner as well) started to drip on our table uncontrollably, she tried to contain her nose with her hands, the same hand she used to touch the menu and the cutlery a second later. She seemed not to care and whipped the snot only after I explicitly asked her to. From here on, we battled with the idea to just to leave, as this lady were in and out the kitchen with her runny nose doing nothing about it, but we got served our smoothy unexpectedly by someone else and we were just hoping our food to come would not be contaminated. The hygiene otherwise seemed great, but the careless behavior we just witnessed was a no-no hygiene wise and a manifestation of the carelessness I guess.

Special requests

We had no special requests here, we were kind of set off by the nose incident and pretty much wanted to get over with the meal and leave.

Waiting time

The waiting time was short. There were just a few other guests, so the food came out quickly.

Quality

The food is partially organic, the raw ingredients were fresh.

Taste

Some dishes were awesome, some not great at all.

Creativity

The dishes were somewhat creative, the soup was pretty unique, the cake rolling method great.

Portion sizes

The portion sizes were on the smaller side, the menue is ok as a light lunch, but it is also very affordable and and additional cake or bread can be added.

My rating of the Greenwoods cafe

Scale 1 (lowest possible rating) – 5 (highest possible rating). More about how I rate the restaurants here.

Victoria Peak

Victoria Peak in Hong Kong is one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. It is a super nice trip into nature with a spectacular city view from the top. We spend a wonderful half day there and would love to share our experience so you’re all set up four your trip.

Victoria Peak Hong Kong

When to go to the Victoria Peak in Hongkong

Chose a clear good weather day. If it’s sunny, bring a head or an umbrella. The time is absolutely up to you, we went in the morning on a Saturday, but going there at the sunset would be undoubtedly amazing as well. Weekdays are less busy we were told.

Getting up the Victoria Peak

As suggested on all the sites and in vlogs, we went to the peak tram station. It was on a Saturday and the waiting line for a ticket was ridiculously long, we would have waited for 2 hours easily, so we decided to take a bus instead. If you wanna skip the ticket line you can pre-purchase the ticket for the next day online and avoid some part of the line. If you decide to go by bus, take the 15. At the tram stations, there was no 15 bus stop, at least not that we could spot it and we took the minibus 1 instead, it’s just up the bridge. Make sure to have 10 HKD in cash exactly or your Octopus card.

Platform

For a good view, you need to access the viewing platform. It’s not free, we bought the ticket, but we could just have paid for it after going up the escalators with the Octopus card.

Organic vegan Snacks

If you need some organic and vegan snacks, don’t waste your time looking around here, just walk up to the next Market Place, it’s 5 minutes and you can buy everything you need for your picknick in the Victoria Peak Garden.

Victoria Peak Garden

The walk up to the gardens is steep and takes 20-30 min, especially if you are carrying all the picknick food and drinks. We enjoyed our picknick up there and returned to the city by taking the stairs all the way down. Finding the path is pretty challenging, have your phone fully charged and have enough credit for wifi.

The walk down

Have your phone with wifi ready here to find your way down. The walk is long but

Hong Kong daily light Show

Show of lights happens every night at 8:00 p.m. The best location is the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront. You can take a ferry from the pier, it’s really affordable and fast. Have your octopus card ready.

The show is not very spectacular though, but it’s free and a reason to go to Tsim Sha Tsui if you live on the Hong Kong Island. Visit the night market afterward.

A walk in the city center November 2018

It has been raining for the past 3 days non-stop and today is the first day that it almost doesn`t rain at all. We live in the city center and left for a late night walk to enjoy the cozy city. There is not much going on, maybe because it’s a weeknight, but also because the people here are so calm you almost don’t notice them.

Ferry Cool

Take a ferry, it works with your Octopus card and is very affordable, I would say almost free.

To see the light show on the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, take the StarFerry from pier 7.

For a quick ride further from the center, take a small ferry.
There are many stations to take this little boots that looks like a pirate ship.
Here are the stations and schedule for the ferries.

Our little trip today happened accidentally, we went for a long walk along the waterfront promenade near our house and had to cross a long bridge to get to the other side. The walk along the bridge wasn’t so exciting because of the traffic and we planned to take a bus back home, but then Stefan saw the ferry, people were getting of it and on it swiping their octopus card, surprisingly, the ferry went just across the river where we needed to go. It was also very affordable, 2.20 HKD which is about 25 Cents per person.
