From Lan Kwai Fong and SoHO to Wyndham Street, Hong Kong’s nightlife districts continue to be lively and vibrant.
Following a relaxation in social distancing measures, Hong Kong now allows up to 4 people to be seated together at bars. Nevertheless, remember to stay safe and keep a distance on your night out!
5) Savour Local Breakfast at a Cha Chaan Teng
Your long-awaited holiday to Hong Kong would not be complete without a visit to a local Cha Chaan Teng.
One of the most famous Cha Chaan Tengs, Australia Dairy Company is said to serve the best scrambled eggs on the planet and is often listed as one of the must-dos when in Hong Kong. However, their infamous customer service might come as a rude shock for first-timers.
For an authentic Cha Chaan Teng experience, go to Lan Fong Yuen for its famous ‘silk-stocking’ milk tea, pork chop buns, French toast, and friendlier staff all around.
