Hong Kong Travel Tips: 11 Things to Know Before You Go

11 things YOU need to know before you go to Hong Kong. A comprehensive travel guide to bring you up to speed on the Weather, Language, Getting Around, and more! Hong Kong was originally a British Colony founded in 1842, taken over by China in 1997. Hong Kong’s Official Name is the “Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong.” In Chinese Hong Kong Means “Fragrant Harbor.” Hong Kong is Famous for Skyscrapers (it has 8,000 of them), but 40% of it’s land is park and nature preserve
Hong Kong has 3 main areas, Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and the New Territories
But in total it has 263 islands

2 - Weather
Hong Kong's climate is sub-tropical, with temperatures dropping below 10 degrees Celsius in winter and exceeding 31 degrees Celsius in summer
Pretty humid all year round
May to November is typhoon season
June & August are the wettest
January and December are the dryest

3. Getting In
Likely flying in to Hong Kong International Airport - HKG.

It’s on Lantau Island, and its HUGE! The size of 20 soccer fields.

You can fly to almost anywhere in the world from Hong Kong (more than 100 airlines operate 1,100 daily flights to and from 190 destinations worldwide)

Cathay Pacific is Hong Kong’s home airline and has won “World’s Best Airline” four times – more than any other.

Airport Express train to Central - Its just 24 minutes, and leaves every 10 minutes
You can buy a round trip airport Express and Octopus card for 3 days unlimited MTR for $350

Taxi one way to Hong Kong Island would be about $400 HKD and take 45 mins to an hour

4. Unlucky
This number omitted because it’s unlucky. 4 in Chinese sounds like the word for “Death.” Most buildings typically omit this floor.


5. Getting Around
By public transit—it's efficient, clean, and affordable
First things first, buy an Octopus Card -- It works on almost everything, even to get you in to the Hong Kong Horse Racetrack
MTT - Subway
Star Ferry - About $3 HKD, Upper Deck & Weekends cost a bit more.
Tram - Ding Ding - $2.60
Double Decker Bus
Mini Bus
Taxi - Relatively inexpensive, but can be hard to hail during rush hour, or a rainy day, or shift change between 3-4pm.
Don’t try to hail a cab if you see double yellow lines by the curb. Taxis can only stop if there is a single line—or none at all.
Uber


6. Money
Hong Kong Dollar
Exchange Rate fixed to the USD. 1 USD = HK$7.75–7.85
Most places take Visa/Mastercard
40% take AMEX
Lots of ATMS -- Hong Kong is a huge financial center after all
Bills: Issued by 3 different banks, so you’ll see 3 different designs for all the bills
HK$20, HK$50, HK$100, HK$500 and HK$1000
Coins:


7. Language
2 Official Languages
1.Chinese, (Spoken Cantonese)
2. English

In the major urban districts, most residents will speak English but Cantonese is the local language

If you think you’re planning to learn a little Cantonese before you go… it’s not easy… it has nine tones.

8. Shopping

Shops often stay open late… none of this European 6pm closing time… think 9 or 10pm closing times for most shops and malls

9. Food:

Cantonese Food
And it’s all about sharing, portions are big and made for big groups
Dim sum originated here in southern China and means “touch the heart”. These tiny bites of goodness were created as snack food for travellers and today are an essential part of local culture.
Dim Sum
Hong Kong Milk Tea

Dai Pai Dong, Fast Food Noodle Shops, are common sites in Hong Kong offering an inexpensive bowl of noodles for around HK$20 and free tea

Bones -- yes, lots of the local food has bones it. At the casual restaurants you can just put the bones on the table. At a fancier restaurant use the saucer plate beneath your bowl

Tea -- Need a refill for your teapot? Turn the lid upside down.

Like to avoid the crowds? Then avoid eating lunch between 1-2pm, that’s the typical Hong Kong lunch hour

10. Feng Shui
The mystical art of feng shui is still common practice in Hong Kong -- wondering why a building’s architecture looks weird? The answer usually has to do with Feng Shui… that might be why your hotel lobby has a water feature and some goldfish in it too!

10 Things NOT to Do in Hong Kong

Get more Tips here!


There are plenty of websites out there telling you what to see and do in Hong Kong. However, to experience the city at its fullest, you’ll also need to know what to avoid. Here’s a list of things NOT to do in Hong Kong.


1. Don’t Spit
Spitting is just not considered rude in China. Some believe it helps ward off evil spirits. However, cross over to Hong Kong and it is prohibited to spit in public. In fact, you can be fined up to HK$5,000 for doing so.


2. Don’t Assume Hong Kong is as Free and Open as the West
Despite it embraces more legal freedoms than the People’s Republic, some believe that e-mails are being monitored and Internet censorship is happening. Travelers should be aware of these rising tensions and be cautious about engaging in politically charged communications.


3. Don’t Overpay at Street Markets
Hong Kong offers a vast range of exciting street markets where you can buy just about any type of consumer good imaginable. Learn the art of haggling, you will often be able to buy things for little over half the asking price.


4. Don’t Take Taxis
It is an unnecessarily expensive way to get around, and it can take a long time to get anywhere through the gridlock. Instead, try using the efficient and affordable Mass Transit Railway, buy an Oyster Card if you’re going to use this several times.


5. Don’t Bother With the Sky Terrace
Instead of going to popular and overpriced tourist traps such as the Sky Terrace, consider the top of The Peak Galleria mall, it is free and the crowds are nil, also try Central Plaza, the Bank of China, Two IFC and One Island East.


6. Don’t Take the Peak Tram
The Peak is undoubtedly one of the best vantage points in Hong Kong, but taking the overpriced, over-crowded tourist tram up to the top isn’t the only way up there. Instead, if you’re fit, consider hiking up the hill using the designated footpaths.


7. Don’t Underestimate the Language Barrier
If you need to ask anyone for directions, try to find younger people to help, since they’re more likely to speak English. Taxi drivers rarely speak English, so have a map or written address on hand to convey where you want to go.


8. Don’t Forget about the Entry Requirements
Hong Kong has its own entry requirements. Citizens of the US and most western nations do not need any visa to visit Hong Kong for a period of less than 90 days. However, if you want to go to Shenzhen or other parts of mainland China, you will need a separate visa.


9. Don’t Bring Chinese Currency
While China uses the Yuan, Hong Kong still uses its own currency; the Hong Kong dollar. Although you shouldn’t have any problem changing money anywhere in the region. If you’re arriving via mainland China, you’ll need to withdraw or change some money as soon as you get to Hong Kong.


10. Don’t Neglect the Rest of Hong Kong
Venture into the New Territories and you’ll find traditional walled towns like Kat Hing Wa, fishing villages on Lamma Island, beaches in Lantau. Surf in Big Wave Bay, markets in Stanley and Repulse Bay. Visit Cheung Chau island and its Cheung Po Tsai pirate caves. There are lots of places to visit. Don't miss them!

Macau Travel Tips: 10 Things to Know Before You Go

10 things YOU need to know before you go to Macau. A comprehensive travel guide to bring you up to speed on the Language, Food, Casinos, and more! First, some basic knowledge on Macau: Macau was a Colony of Portugal from 1557-1999, and now it’s a Special Administrative Region of China just like Hong Kong. Macau is small -- 30 sq km, or 11 sq miles. 640,000 people live there. In 2017 Macau had 30 million visitors… lots of people for such a tiny place. 64km (40 miles) west of Hong Kong. A great day trip from Hong Kong, but easily worth 2 nights

Macau is best known as a gambling and shopping mecca, but it also has a really neat historic portuguese center
Macau is the only place in China where you can gamble legally. It generates more revenue from gambling than anywhere else on the earth including more than about seven times the revenue generated by “The Strip” in La Vegas

4 main parts…
the main part of Macau with the historic Portuguese core. This is called the Macau Peninsula
Taipa
Cotai Strip
Colane

2. Getting In

Ferry from Hong Kong
Takes 40-60 Minutes
2 different operators
Turbojet: The Red One
Cotai Water Jet: The Blue One
4 Ferry Terminal in Hong Kong
2 Ferry Terminals in Macau -
If you’re going to the Cotai Strip, most convenient to take Cotai Water Jet
Going to the Historic Portuguese section, take Turbojet

Macau does have it’s own airport, but not many flights

There’s a new bridge from HKG to Macau, you can take a bus on it

Or cross the border by land from China.



4. Unlucky
This number omitted because it’s unlucky. 4 in Chinese sounds like the word for “Death.” Most buildings typically omit this floor.


5. Getting Around

Free Shuttle Service

Macau’s hotels offer free shuttle service from the airport, ferry terminals, and border gates.

· The Venetian Macao Free Shuttle Schedule

· The Parisian Macao Free Shuttle Schedule

· Sands Cotai Central Free Shuttle Schedule

Bus
Public buses operate frequently throughout Macau, Taipa, and Coloane. Buses have onboard stop notifications in Mandarin, Cantonese, Portuguese and English.

· Price: Within Macau or Taipa: MOP3.2, Macau-Taipa: MOP4.2, Macau-Coloane: MOP5, Airport service: MOP4.2.

Taxi
Macau’s taxis come in two color schemes: one is yellow, the other is black and cream. Both color taxis charge the same fees. Taxis stands are located near hotel lobbies.

Tips:

·Base price (first 1.6 km): MOP17, additional MOP2 for each 260 m afterwards.
Extra fees: Taxi waiting fee is MOP2 for every minute. Taxis have a MOP3 luggage storing fee. There is a MOP2 fee from Taipa to Coloane, and a MOP5 fee from Macau to Coloane. There is an MOP5 fee for taxi trips to and from the airport.

Uber operates in Macau

6. Money
Macanese Pataca (MOP)
Most shops and restaurants will accept HKG to pay, with a 1:1 exchange rate to MOP
The exchange rate is fixed at HK$1 = MOP$1.03
But you’ll typically get change back in MOP



7. Language

Portuguese (but its own dialect)
And Chinese (Cantonese)
A little less english than Hong Kong, but enough to get by


8. Shopping

In every hotel on the Cotai Strip

9. The rest of Macau outside the Casinos and Historic Districts

10. Food:
Macanese cuisine’ is a mix of southern Chinese and Portuguese ingredients and cooking techniques. With a history dating back over 400 years, the cuisine is often regarded as the world’s first fusion cuisine.

Egg Tart that is so popular in Dim Sum restaurants originated here.. Lord Stows cafe is the original located in Taipa. Most convenient location is the one in the Venetian

Bifanas - Thin breaded pork Sandwich

Really good high end Chinese food cheaper than Hong Kong. The Wynn hotel has some really good options.

30 Secrets & Things to do in Hong Kong

This is my ultimate Hong Kong travel guide including 30 things to do, secrets, best foods to eat and best places to visit which I carefully selected, like Michelin star Dim Sum at Tim Ho Wan, Hing Kee clay-pot rice dises, secret Lugard Street, Lan Fong Yuen Hong Kong tea, Yum Cha, Roasted Pigeon, Yik Cheong Building, Symphony of Lights and the vibrant Hong Kong Nightlife at LKF. Subscribe to my channel ► for new videos!

Hong Kong may appear to be massive when you look at photos of its skyline but trust me it is conveniently packed and can be easily explored within 2 days. I recommend you start Hong Kong at the Victoria Peak which offers amazing views of the Hong Kong island skyline, but avoid paying $7 USD for the Skyterrace, instead take a 15-minute hike on the secret Lugard Road which leads to the best view of Hong Kong.

Great attractions on Hong Kong island are the Yik Cheong building at Quarry Bay, easily reachable by subway and Oddies, Hong Kong style egg-waffles in the Central district.

Other typical places to visit are Lan Fong Yuen, for their special Hong Kong tea ($3 USD), filtered to actual stockings, leaving no residue. Also try their buns seared with condensed milk.

The most bizarre dish I must have eaten was the wild pigeon at Kwan Yu Roasted Meats in Causeway Bay, an entire roasted pigeon for $6 USD with a cup of extremely strong tea. A meal for champions to say the least.

For a more delightful dinner, venture out to Yung Kee Restaurant for their Signature Charcoal Roasted Goose for $35 USD. Crispy goose skin covered juicy goose meat, a true local delicacy.

Hong Kong also offers very fun restaurants and great for food photography, especially Yum Cha, for their cute dim sum steamer baskets containing piggy pork buns, pineapple bird cakes in a cage and funky molten custard buns. Make sure to poke a hole for the hot custard to ooze out of its mouth. I even ran into a few Reformatt subscribers from Japan and Hong Kong who were also dining at the same restaurant.

Another bizarre restaurant is Hoi Tin Tong where you can try out the local turtle jelly which apparently cures you from a hangover. Although pricey, at $15 USD you may expect a lot, but it is very blend until you pour some honey into the mix. Their best treat is the almond pudding, this was beyond delicious for just $2 USD.

12% OFF Aqua Luna tickets:


The BEST Hong Kong dim sum can be experience at Michelin-star restaurant Tim Ho Wan, for extremely cheap prices, Shumai at $4 USD, Har Gow at $4 USD and BBQ pork buns at $3 USD, basically $1 USD per item. Absolutely ridiculously cheap for Michelin rated food. Arrive before 5pm to avoid any line-ups.

In conclusion, I have to say that Hong Kong is one of the coolest cities I've ever been to, but you must remember, Hong Kong is a pure business city, the locals can be very rushed and occupied. Hong Kong never really focused on being a hardcore tourist destination so keep that in mind. This itinerary is ideal for 2 days in Hong Kong, everything is within proximity, so you won't spent too much time travelling around.
