Finally, some Hong Kong content! While I took an absurd amount of photos in Japan, I took very little in Hong Kong. I’m not sure if it was just because we were shopping a lot, or I just wasn’t feeling it, but the photos I took were minimal. You’ll see a few more next weekend and the following, but you’ll find it just doesn’t measure up to the photos I took in Japan! With that said, I did take some good ones.
After doing the AirBnB thing for 10 days in Japan, Jess and I were ready to stay somewhere a little more luxe, and featuring a few more of the amenities we’re used to: standard showers, a fitness center, etc. I’d never stayed at a Langham hotel before, but Jessica just raved about them, so we decided to go for that. We were told by a bunch of reliable sources to stay on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong, which luckily, is where The Langham is! The rooms were lovely – comfy beds, white marble bathrooms, Nespresso machines and fresh fruit each morning. We were in heaven!
We were both in need of a relaxing afternoon after spending so much time on our feet, so we made a reservation for afternoon tea downstairs! It was the perfect break from the warm, muggy weather outside and a nice escape from the typical Chinese fare – to be perfectly honest, there weren’t many restaurants we liked while we were there… but this one was GREAT! We treated it as a late lunch vs a snack, which was perfect. There was lots to eat! The tea sandwiches were all very yummy, but definitely different from what I’ve had in London.
My favorite part of the Afternoon Tea was actually the tea, which I can honestly say I’ve never said before. I believe I ordered the Palm Court Exotic Blend, but I could be wrong – Jess and I ordered different ones, but that name sounds familiar. I was surprised and pleased to see my tea was pink! So fun. And it was absolutely delicious – lots of sweet, floral notes in it. I even asked if I could buy some to take home, but unfortunately they don’t sell it. Sad face.
If you’re traveling to Hong Kong anytime soon, I highly recommend booking your stay at The Langham – it was amazing!
