I took a solo trip to Hongkong in July 2016. Hongkong is located in the South East Asia and has a humid tropical climate. It is a five hour (approx.) from Delhi, India. Language spoken here is mainly Cantonese, with very less use of English. 

Hongkong is the hub for shopping and landmarks. The best markets to shop here are Stanley Market and Murray House, Mong Kok market (it is also known as the Ladies market and has an amazing collection of bags, toys, clothes, accessories, footwear and anything that you can think of). The Temple Street night market is one of the biggest markets to shop for everything. Tsim Sha Shui and Central are one of the porche localities of Hongkong. They flaunt the biggest of brands, malls, bakeries and hotels. 

The main attractions of Hongkong that i visited are Victoria Peak, Disneyland, Ocean Park and Ngong Ping 360 cable car or the Big Budha Temple. The Victoria Peak exhibits a breathe taking view of the city and it's waterfront; and getting there is really easy. The Disneyland speaks for itself. The Ocean Park and Disneyland offer amazing rides for kids as well as for adults. If you wish to spend your day in splendid views, waterfalls, dolphin shows, out of the ordinary animals, fairytale castles go to these places. The Big Budhha Temple soars feets high in the sky and is visible from a very far distance. 

You must try the seafood of Hongkong. They have every vareity of everything. From fish, chicken, pork, lamb to prawns, ducks, fish balls and octopuses. The best places to eat are Australian Dairy Company (Jordan), Tim Ho Wanfor dimsums (Sham Shi Po), Tai Cheong Bakery for Egg Tart (Central), Kam Wah Cafe for Pineapple bun (Mong Kok) and Lan Fong Yuen for milk tea, Chicken Macroni (Central) to name a few.

A friendly tip for those travelling to Hongkong is to always carry a water bottle while exploring the place as the weather is humid and water is quite expensive.
