    Default HKG travel intel

    Greetings, I'm thinking of going to HKG for a class and had some questions. First, are the protests affecting the airport anymore? I saw that they apologized and moved the protests into a business district.

    I'm originating from California - what's the best non-rev hop to HKG? I'm w Delta, so I can get to NRT, HND, ICN, PVG.

    Is it hard to get around? Metro, cab, "Uber"?

    How do costs compare to American cities?

    What are the 5 things I "must do" while I'm there - I'll have down time during the day.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Can't comment on the first two...

    Getting around is easy with the metro/underground. I'd grab an octopus card, you can load it up and use it for public transport and some stores too.

    Costs are about typical for a big city if not more so. Can also depend on your style, there's street markets to high end luxury in a minute.

    To do's in no particular order:
    DIM SUM - Tim Ho Wan bbq buns to die for. Also love the rest of the selections. (Din Tai Fung in taipei edges them out - we'd make a TPE trip just to eat there.)
    Roast Goose - There's a pretty famous restaurant that serves roasted meats for an affordable price.
    Boba/Milk Tea etc
    HK has so much good amazing food from cheap to michelin stars. Just gotta persevere and yolo.

    Sight seeing:
    Light show on the harbor
    Lots of roof top bars
    Victoria's Peak - didn't get to go cuz it was foggy but i feel like it's a must do if permitting
    Big Budha on the other side of the island
    Hiking trails
    Shopping the street markets - temple street / ladies market
    HK Disney if that's your thing
    Explore Macau

    So much to do, so little time. All depends on your interests.
