Breaking up is hard to do - Hong Kong, China

Our last day in Hong Kong was really great. We wanted to try Crystal Jade (a restaurant Lizzy's friend recommended) for lunch so we headed over to the IFC mall. I was crossing my fingers for an amazing Chinese meal (because I had been highly disappointed in the food thus far) and boy did we hit the jackpot! This place was so amazing. By far the best Chinese food I have ever had in my life. In fact, it was so amazing that we went back for dinner before we headed to the airport. Oh, and yes, the hostess did remember us from earlier in the morning. Embarrassing? Yes, but oh well, it was worth it. We just might be addicted to the pork soup dumplings. Best dumplings ever!!!

After lunch we headed over to the Bank of China Tower for a nice view of the city. Then we headed to the ladies market to do some shopping. There were a few good finds, but most of the stuff was junk. After shopping we went to the Tsim Sha Tsui harbor to watch the nightly light show. Then we had dinner at Crystal Jade and then it was magically time to go get our stuff from the hotel and head to the airport. We were quite sad to leave!

We LOVED Hong Kong and would highly recommend visiting. It's an international city that it very easy to get around and is packed with things to do. So, do yourself a favor, come visit this amazing city


  1. The picture of those dumplings is making my mouth water! They were amazing!

  2. Yum, dumplings! I love the photos and being able to follow your tour. Melanie

  3. I wish there was a way to go to the Crystal Jade without having to fly to Hong Kong.
