Hong Kong

Hong Kong is full of delicious treats. The egg tarts are a must-try snack. They taste like mini quiches with a hint of sugar. But the very best meal I had was a series of toasts topped with condensed milk, butter and peanut butter. No matter what you do, don't leave the city without trying the "Hong Kong french toast," which is essentially a donut shaped like a piece of toast that is drenched in syrup. YUM!


Hong Kong is also home to the world's largest, bronze, sitting Buddha. I took a little day trip to visit him, and it was very worth it. You can take the subway to the base of the mountain where you can catch a ride in a glass-bottom cable car to visit the Buddha.  Visiting the statue feels more like going to a theme park rather than a tranquil journey, but it's still fun nonetheless. (There is a Starbucks at the top of the mountain if you get thirsty.)

If you're looking for a low-budget adventure, try visiting Goldfish Street and the pet market.  Here you can browse thousands of colorful fish and even see some super cute kittens.
