We visited a few places in day 5 Hong Kong in a slower and more relaxing pace, includes Wan Chai, Time Square, SOGO and Symphony of Lights.
Read more of my earlier days in Hong Kong:
It’s Christmas day and we booked a Michelin Star Hong Kong cuisine inspired fine dining restaurant in Wan Chai – Bo Innovation. We had the tasting lunch menu (cost HKD 900 ++ per person) and it was AMAZING. Such great unique fine dining experience. Read my full review on Bo Innovation Hong Kong.
The last two days in Hong Kong are super chill and relax, especially the last day in Hong Kong. Since we both have visited Hong Kong more than twice, nothing is too surprising for us anymore but we do enjoy the city streets and culture in Hong Kong. On day 5 we visited the following places:
Bo Innovation, Wan Chai
Johnston Rd, No 60 Shop 8, J Senses Entrance on Ship Street J Residence
Don’t forget to check out my full review and experience on Bo Innovation Hong Kong.
Time Square, Causeway Bay
1 Matheson Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Island
Times Square is a shopping centre and office tower complex in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. You can find all your high end retails in this shopping centre such as Louis Vuitton, Channel, Prada, Gucci etc. There’s also a department store in the shopping centre and some restaurant. We didn’t spend much time in here as we both have visited this place before. Unless you’re here to shop, there isn’t a lot to see in this shopping mall. All high-end retails are the same everywhere in Hong Kong.
How to Get There:
MTR Causeway Bay Station, Exit A
SOGO Department Store, Causeway Bay
20 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
If you didn’t know already, SOGO is a famous Japanese department store chain. They have stores all around the world. My favourite part of SOGO is definitely the lowest level, which is the food court and groceries section. You can find all sorts of Japanese groceries and snacks in this level. The rest of SOGO are just another luxurious shopping. So if shopping is not your thing, head down straight to the lowest level and enjoy some Japanese goodness. (I know it’s ironic to enjoy Japanese food in Hong Kong, but who doesn’t like Japanese???)
Walk around Causeway Bay and Wanchai
Symphony of Light in Tsim Sha Tsui
Watch from buildings both on Hong Kong Island and in Kowloon
After a long day walk around in the Wan Chai area, we took the train back to Tsim Sha Tsui. We missed the show on the first day so here we are again to witness the popular Symphony of Light at Victoria Harbour. The amount of “human” is crazy and I’m surprised to see most are actually local HongKians that came for the show, usually families or couples. The show starts at 8pm every single day and it usually last for about 15 mins or so. It’s absolutely free to see the show but you’ll have to come in early to snatch a good view of it. My camera of course didn’t get to capture the whole thing properly but overall it was a pleasant experience, but be prepared for war with the leaving crowd after the show (it’s another show) lol.
- Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade outside the Hong Kong Cultural Centre: MTR East Tsim Sha Tsui Station, Exit L6. Follow the signs and walk for around five minutes.
- Golden Bauhinia Square: MTR Wan Chai Station, Exit A5. Follow the signs, take the skybridge to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, and head for the Golden Bauhinia Square.
- A favourite vantage point for viewing the show is from a boat on the harbour.
Hung Lee Restaurant (Congee)
2 Ahau Fook Street, 2A Hau Fook St, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
We headed straight to dinner after Symphony of Light show. We found this restaurant online and decided to try it out. I would say it’s pretty decent for its price tag. The pork and century egg porridge is a must try (picture not shown here, sorry).
So that ends of Day 5 in Hong Kong. Again it’s a very relaxed travel schedule. Hope you enjoy reading my simple Hong Kong Day.
Thank you for stopping by!
