Hong Kong Diary

September 15, 2017

What We Did Day 1: Central, Sheung Wan & Lan Kwai Fong Melissa and i have always talked about visiting Hong Kong together, so it was a little surreal when we finally put plans into motion, despite being so spontaneous.

If this place looks familiar, it is because it is currently on the cover of Lonely Planet’s Hong Kong guide. It was a quiet and chilly morning on the day of our visit, and we could feel…
