Travelling as a Couple: 5 Days in Hong Kong

This was my first out of the country travel. First time to use my just released passport, to ride on a plane, to eat on a plane and the best thing was that I got to do all these first times with my special someone.

Day 1 – Arrived in Hong Kong

We bought an airport express ticket and MTR Octopus for a hassle-free rides in the train for 4 days in which we got a refundable amount in the Airport.

Finding the hotel was a struggle. Luckily, we didn’t fight (hard) before we found it. This tested our patience with each other and the cooperation that led us to locate the hotel. We stayed in M1 Hotel in North Point.

The hotel offers discounted tickets to famous landmarks in Hong Kong.

We ended the first day after a horrible dinner in a not so friendly Hotpot restaurant nearby. Lesson learned: Do not eat where nobody can speak English.

Day 5

We planned to spend the Day 5 (Valentines Day) in Macau which is one ferry ride away but due to unfortunate events, we weren’t able to get tickets.

We went back to the hotel to celebrate the day with a chocolate cake, red wine and Batman on Netflix. 🙂
