Hong Kong (Central)

(Late-2018, 1 WEEK)

 

  • TONS of expats
  • The most expensive and crappiest Airbnb accommodations. I spent $75 per night for a 1-bedroom in an A+ location, but the actual accommodation was old and dirty. Now, I’m coming from Colombia where I had a beautiful 1-bedroom for $22 per night and I know in cities like New York and San Francisco, you would be hard pressed to find someplace at this price.
  • Get an Octopus Card which is the only card accepted at many businesses
  • Look right first when crossing the street! They drive on the left side of the road
  • Everyone has a Tesla
  • Outdoor escalators due to the hills (longest in the world)
  • More or less a very large Chinatown
  • Built on a gigantic hill, every street seems to have steps and a cliff
  • Macau: Vegas except without the entertainment and much more gambling. 100% focused on gambling. Kind of boring. Surprisingly very few foreigners here.

Quest Protein Bar: 18HDK ($2.30)

Gym Day Pass: 200–380HKD ($25-$50)
