January Visit to Hongkong

For full time employees like me, Holidays + long  weekends are much awaited!  Me and my friends were able to book our promo tickets for a Friday  to Sunday visit to Hongkong.  It was our first to see the city so our itineraries were basically touristy.

It was January temperature was around 18 ‘C during day time and drops to around 10’C in the evening . It was the perfect time to pull those baggy Terranovas out of the closet and onto the pictures =)

I fell in love with the city lights , the rush and the Hongkong- style street food ! My 3 days visit was surely not enough and I am definitely going back to experience more of this city’s off beaten corners.
