TramOramic Tour

I was recently invited on a sightseeing trip of a very different style - not on a bus or boat, but on a tram. Hong Kong Tramways has just launched the TramOramic Tour, which is a 1-hour sightseeing journey aboard a unique 1920s style tram with authentic tales of local life. A few days ago… Continue reading TramOramic Tour

Review: Emack & Bolio’s

Despite the cold temperatures in January and February, I had to venture out to try this 'new' ice cream place people were talking about. Well, it has been open for some months now (since summer 2015), but I don't explore Central that much anymore - so for me it was still new. Emack & Bolio's… Continue reading Review: Emack & Bolio’s

Review: Dim Sum at Maxim’s Palace

There is probably NO guide book that does NOT mention the famous Maxim's Palace in Hong Kong's City Hall... but it took me more than four years to give this famous place a go. And the only reason we went is that we were next door at the City Gallery and when we finished walking… Continue reading Review: Dim Sum at Maxim’s Palace

Sunny days in Hong Kong

Apologies for my blogging absence - the nice and sunny weather was to blame! I have been to busy exploring and enjoying Hong Kong! We had particularly bad weather after the Chinese New Year. March was windy, grey and rainy. But April has been fantastic - the month allowed me to go out a lot… Continue reading Sunny days in Hong Kong
