8 Hours in Hong Kong.

An 8 hour layover in Hong Kong.

View from Victoria Harbour

Sunrise from the Plane
Landed around sunrise.

The authentic, cheap HK food was supposed to be in the area called Causeway Bay, so I attempted to walk there. Turns out Hong Kong was really hard to get around on foot - the map doesn't tell you where things are connected on land, by bridge, or not at all. Eventually I gave up and tried out their subway system.

Causeway Bay wasn't particularly "pretty" and there were a lot of small constructions going on. Interestingly, a high end mall with stores like Louis Vuitton were located just behind a row of market stalls.

I had some trouble finding food. See, I landed very early in the morning, and turns out that most places don't open until 10 am. So I walked and walked until I found something open and interesting. In the end, I went into a hole in the wall selling fish noodle soups.

How can I say no to a pieces of tripe and intestine hanging on a window display?
