These are the real deal, these ones.
Are they like?.
chicken bao buns with roe? crab roe? They're not chicken.
Are they pork? What's the dipping sauce? Soy? [Laughs] Welcome to our crib! Our shoebox for the next four days – can you fit width ways? head-to-toe? But it has everything we need Hairdryer, kettle Toilet roll Tiny bathroom and the shower goes directly into the toilet it's perfect It's perfect! Yay! We just don't have a lot of space, butwe're in Hong Kong [woo!] – space is limited.
Let's go explore.
Who's excited for Hong Kong? We should probably explain why we've got twin room.
It's not because Emily hates me, it's because when we were looking on booking.
com at all the rooms in Hong Kong thedouble beds just look like single beds so we decided to opt for a twin roombecause it's kind of more space in the bedroom, well it looked like there was more space.
and we can kind of, like, put our backpacks underneath the beds.
So yeah, it's going to be four nights of sleeping alone.
She's not bothered.
Now we're just heading towards the Avenue of Stars which is on the southern tip of Tsim Sha Tsui.
I think that is how you pronounce it, I'm really sorry, I apologise if I made a mess of that.
It's just on the southern tip and youcan look out over Victoria Harbour so we're gonna go see the Avenue of Stars, statues of Hollywood greats and I'm guessing some Chinese and Hong Kong's stars too.
It's more about the view, I think.
The view – it's more about the view, but no, yeah, but you have gotta have like.
Yeah, I don't care about.
I don't care about the stars.
Don't you want a picture with them? No.
Well I want a picture with them so you're going to have to take loads of pictures of me.
We are just enjoying some local beer – imported beer – I don't know if it's local.
We're just enjoying some beer and reading our books on the Avenue of Stars and making the most of the lovely weather Hopefully we stay here and see the sunset andthen we're gonna try and find some dim sum because we're hungry.
[Inaudible] It's what? Miss.
Glass we're ready for you in two.
This is the director.
So we've had a few beers, now we're gonna go have some dim sum.
Hopefully all you can eat dim sum.
I'm not too sure – I couldn't really understand the menu – we'll find out.
We're in a shady lift.
This looks bad.
That looks terrible.
This look like a Sweet and Sour meal that you would get at home.
Like a meal for one? Yeah.
Poor, Poor, Sad.
This is chicken and shrimp fried rice.
This is? These are the real deal, these ones.
Are they like chicken bao buns with roe? crab roe? They're not chicken.
Are they pork? What's the dipping sauce? Soy? [Laughs] [Laughing] Are they really hot? Don't put that in for god's sake.
Well that's going straight in the bin.
WHAT!, I'll eat it.
Yeah, where is it gone? Where is it?It's in there.
I've literally just burnt my top lip.
Don't be so ridiculous, get it down you.
No, I'm not eating it.
[Laughs] Please let me put that in.
It's amazing [Something, something] bao buns [laughs].
That's chicken with cucumber.
All of this is 100% out of a microwave.
The jasmine tea is good, though.
So our place is just off Nathan Road, which is the main strip here in Tsim Sha Tsui.
So it runs from like North to South and that's where all the malls and the shopping centres and the places to eat are.
And that's where the MRT and the buses run.
We're pretty smack-bang in the center of everything which is good.
Everything so far is inwalking distance which is really nice.
We're just getting out for the morning.
We're up early – gonna be doing kind of like a hike.
It's going to be around 2 hours, we're gonna go to a viewpoint.
First of all we're gonna walk back toAvenue of Stars which is like five minutes down the road, and then what we'll do isget the ferry, which is the Star Ferry, across.
it's about a 30p, so it's really cheap and then we're going to find somewhere to eat and then we're gonna walk up to, erm.
I think it's called Victoria Viewpoint.
I'll have to ask Emily.
To look out over Victoria Harbour and back to TST, where our hotel is.
So yeah, we're going off the mainland to Hong Kong Island to look over towardsthe mainland, and we've seen some shots online and the views were absolutelyamazing so yeah can't wait to hopefully get the same views.
It's fairly quiet, isnt it? What time is it? 8:20, Saturday.
When we were in Boracay, someone said to us, we were saying that we were going to Hong Kong.
and someone who had lived there, we asked him for tips and he said don't go on the weekend, obviouslybecause it's busy, but it's really quiet so far.
So hopefully it's not as busy at the viewpoint that we're going to.
which is called.
Is it called Victoria Peak or something as well?That's near it, yes.
Let's go! It's really coldI mean it's not cold, can we just say.
Well it's cold-er.
than Manila and every over the place thatwe've been.
It's cold to us.
and thenwe don't know whether we should anyone It's 21 degrees.
21 degrees but it FEELS like 7 degrees.
I think the UK have snow next week.
It's not that bad but we wish we would've brought jackets out because we're going to the top of this and think that wemight be cold, I'm freezing already.
I might have to buy a jacket.
Here is Star Ferry, what we're going to be catching across from the mainland to Hong Kong island, which is this over here.
It's nice to just be in a cool environment.
But also be able to walk around, instead of just sitting in the hotel.
It's steep ain't it? You're killing me off.
[Singing] Old peak road, I'm gonna walk until I get a stitch.
[Sighs] Ooh it better be worth it.
[Puffing] This is harder than what I thought it was going to be.
You get some great views, though.
We're basically climbing up a mountain.
but there's like apartments and skyscrapers all around.
God knows how they were built up here.
I think we have got another half hour to 40 minutes.
Ahhh Emily has just stopped, I cannot wait to have a break.
I'm literally sweating profusely.
We've made it to Victoria Peak which is like at the top.
You can look out over to Hong Kong over to the mainland but there's meant to be a nicer and probably a less busy viewpointon Lugard Road so we're just making our way there now.
It's really flat which isreally nice because I'm dying.
In true Asian fashion, we made it tothe top, really sweaty, the views were epic and there's a massive mall on the top of the mountain.
God knows how this was built, honestly.
