On Saturday night we were out with friends and visited Marrakesh. This was the 2nd time I’d been as the first time was several years ago with the very same friends. Its on Chapel Bar in the city centre just off Market Square. We entered the restaurant fairly late (close to 9pm) and were seated quickly as the restaurant wasn’t full. We were sat near the back of the restaurant.
Earlier this month we decided to give the Street Food Club a go. Its been open in the Intu Victoria Centre Shopping Centre for a while now but because of its location we’ve never been bothered. However, the husband saw some photos on Facebook of food served there and we thought we’d try it. We’ve also tried a similar concept in Leeds.
In December I was sent to Paris on a work trip. All expenses were paid for and the hotel was booked by work. I stayed at the HCM for 2 nights.
Victoria Peak tends to be one of the must see attractions of Hong Kong if only because of the great views (unless there’s really heavy fog like during our visit) and the novelty of riding up and down on the Peak Tram. Its really easy to get to using the MTR to get to Central and walking from there.
I’ve been to Hong Kong several times in my youth as it was a favoured destination of my mother who enjoys shopping. One of my earliest memories of Hong Kong was of a daytime cruise on a junk boat. As our trip back in May was to be my first trip back since I reached adulthood, and Keith’s first ever visit to Hong Kong, I was determined to book a cruise on a junk boat!
On our 2nd night in Singapore we met up with another group of friends at Fat Bird in Bugis. Its address is 1 Liang Seah St #01-15/16, Singapore 189022. It looks like a really busy restaurant from the outside. We were sat upstairs which is rather small and cosy but still allows for several tables.
On the 1st night in Singapore we met up with some friends for dinner at Koh Grill & Sushi Bar. This restaurant is situated in a shopping mall called Wisma Atria Shopping Centre.
On our 2nd day in Singapore we took the MRT to the Chinatown station in order to visit the area known as Chinatown/Little India. This is because Chinese temples sit alongside Indian temples in this area.
Like with Singapore, Hong Kong seem to have tried their best to make it easy for tourists for travel and communication! After some research I’d found the following:
We chose Ibis Hong Kong Central & Sheung Wan for our 3 night stay in Hong Kong (May 2017) as it was quite central (as its name says!). We also went for Ibis as you generally know what to expect and they were one of the more affordable places to stay in Hong Kong.
