As you sit reading this I’m off on an adventure to Hong Kong! This is the first time in almost 10 years that I’ve been in Asia and I’m super excited. My family is originally from Hong Kong and while most of them have left the city for other parts of the world, it’ll be interesting to see the city my parents grew up in. Exploring my roots so to speak.

I have been to Hong Kong before. The first time I was just a wee one of 5 years. The second, was a quick 24 hour blur of the city before heading off to Cambodia and Thailand. This time around, I will be in the city for 10 days. I’m really looking forward to actually really seeing this city and most importantly, EATING!
Here are a few things on my to do list:
See Hong Kong from the top of the Peak.
Ride the ding ding cars.
Explore my family’s roots
My parents have given me a list of places to see that were important to them. Where they grew up, went to school and so forth. Above is where my father lived, but now it no longer exists.
See Lantau Island and its big Buddha.
Visit all the markets.
Popping over to Macau and experience a little bit of Portugal in China
Eating all the food!
See some cool temples and monasteries
Join in on the umbrella revolution
Just wander around and take in the beautiful harbour and lights
Oh… and did I mention eating?

Note to #SundayTraveler readers: I won’t be updating next week. I’ve been blogging consistently and would like a short break while in Hong Kong. Plus, for the first time in ages, I’m not traveling with a computer! If I’m able to my hands on a computer, I’ll add in the link code below, but if not you can link up the following week with any of the other cohosts.
Update Nov 16: There are computers at the airport!
