Since we were on the island side, right after we were done with dried seafood shopping at Dex Voeux Road in Sheung Wan, we took “ding ding” tram back to Pedder Street and took bus to Central Star Ferry Pier (or take a 15 minute walk to the pier).

Star Ferry’s history is dated back to 122 years ago where it first established its first boat service to ferry passengers across the harbour. (read: Star Ferry)

Tsui Wah Restaurant is akin Kim Gary or Wong Kok in Malaysia, and they have branches all over in HK. We went to the branch located at The Peak, right after our visit to Madame Tussauds.

Besides Tsui Wah, there is also another famous wan tan noodles shop which is just few shoplots away, Mak’s Noodles. Their wan tan noodles are reportedly one of the best in HK. You can also find another branch at Wellington Street, Central.

Anyway, our visit was a planned one as a result of my “intensive” research on food in HK. 😛

To help you to decide, they have a list of Top 10 dishes for you to choose.

No visit is complete without paying a visit to the awesome Peak Tower, where you can take a nostalgic tram to go up and enjoy the most beautiful view in the world.

After our breakfast at Law Fu Kee, we headed to the nearest tram stop which is just right opposite the shop and took electric tram to Chater Garden at Central. (Read: ‘Ding Ding’ HK Tram Guide) The journey took about 10 minutes and we alighted at the fifth stop. FYI there is no announcement of the place where the tram stops. Plan your journey ahead so that you will roughly know how many stops before you alight. (Read: Route service and information)

Our third day itinerary was to visit The Peak which is located on the island side. For the sake of convenience, I brought them to this particular shop in Sheung Wan called Law Fu Kee Congee and Noodle Specialist.

Our tummies were already growling so we quickly put down some orders – lean pork with century eggs congee, fish slice congee, wan tan noodles and dumpling noodles. We also ordered a plate of boiled choy sum as well.

All the stuffs were great. Smooth congee, bouncy noodles and crunchy greens made a great morning.

Apologies if the above photos lacked of quality – I had to fend off their hungry hands who were just as quick as me as they were not willing to wait further. Hence, I had to employ all-in-one tactic to save time.

If you happen to be there, remember to order deep fried fish ball with clam sauce as well. We did not try as we were not aware in the first place.

Bear with me for posting such a short article but stay tuned for the next article. Thanks!

Kam Wah Cafe is another highly rated restaurant which reportedly serves awesome if not the best polo bun in HK. We were there on the second day for late afternoon tea and returned again for breakfast on the fifth day of the trip.

Ocean Park is Hong Kong’s premier theme park. It is rated as the world’s seventh most popular theme park (source: Wikipedia).

I’ve been to Disneyland on my first visit to HK so this round, I have planned to visit Ocean Park.

To get to Ocean Park, take MTR to Admiralty station and follow signs to Ocean Park Bus Pickup. It will lead you to ticketing counter outside Lippo Centre where you can pre-purchase entrance ticket at the cost of HK$250 per person. Next, if you have Octopus card ready, you can board bus number 629 that will take you directly to Ocean Park. The bus stop is just right behind the ticketing counter for your information and it costs about HK$10.90 per way.

To avoid wasting time figuring out what to visit, I have pre-planned a few attractions to visit. I believe photos will explain further so here goes:
