Urban getaway: Deep Water Bay

Deep Water Bay is not the most beautiful beach in Hong Kong - but it is so easy to reach. It is just on the other side of the Aberdeen tunnel, and takes less than 15 minutes to reach from Causeway Bay.

Exploring Stanley

We love to go to Stanley on the weekend - we usually go there in the afternoon, take the kids and just stroll down the water promenade.

HK Island, Restaurant Review

Review: Samsen

Samsen is our long-time favourite Thai restaurant. It is run by Chef Adam Cliff, who left Chachawan, in late 2015 to open this place. Samsen¬†is everything but your average Thai. It is intimate and small (with only 35 seats, some at the counter) and the menu focuses mainly on boat noodles, stir fries and snacks… Continue reading Review: Samsen
