Visitors to a destination may not have the same must-dos when it comes to attractions, restaurants, and hotels, but there is one common denominator for every traveler: we must get around. Our Traveler of the Week elevates transportation tips to a new level with her journal Getting around in Hong Kong.
Frequent traveler jae_em--who says she hits the road because she “doesn’t want a secondhand experience”--shares five great options for going from sight to sight that are sure to help the overwhelmed (or overscheduled) visitor take on Hong Kong. She also offers insightful tips for each mode of transportation, including: don’t sit on the Star Ferry’s lower deck if you’re sensitive to smell.
Another olfactory experience to avoid in Hong Kong: a meal at Modern Toilet. This bonus review from jae_em includes hilarious photos of the kitschy restaurant, but she recommends avoiding a firsthand experience; food was lackluster, and Modern Toilet doesn’t even have a bathroom.
We can’t wait to hear jae_em’s picks, pans, and ironic observations from her next destination.
