Hong Kong & Macau // Dec 2016 - Jan 2017

By 14:51 , ,

Went to Hong Kong & Macau with my family - 3.5 days in Hong Kong and 3.5 days in Macau. First time to both places for me. Weather was perfect - nice and cool! 

Hong Kong has many vegan options! Didn't get to go to many of them due to time limitations but pretty satisfied with what we had :) Macau didn't have that many (especially since Blissful Carrot was closed for the holidays TT ) but it was still manageable!

Here's the link to my Google Maps - went to only a fraction of the places.

I realised how awfully bad I am at reading Chinese. And I have zero knowledge of Cantonese lol. I could probably have learnt from Hong Kong dramas I watched as a kid but those shown on TV here are dubbed! You'd think that Cantonese can't be that far from Chinese but when people talk to me in Cantonese I just stare blankly lol
