We stayed at Holiday Inn Express Hong Kong Soho at #83 Jervois St, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong for 4D/3N. The location is good since it's only a minute away to Sheung Wan MTR station so it saves us a lot of Red Taxi Fare; the most expensive Taxi there, Next is Green Taxi, and Blue Taxi - the cheapest but only in Lantau. If you plan on using the MTR as your transpo during your whole stay then you must download their app or check their site and save the MTR Routes Map.

We love eating at Dim Sum Square just a minute walk from our hotel. there's also a lot of nice restaurants, grocery store, convenience store & cafe near.

If you're visiting HK Disneyland it's best to get vouchers before your trip at KLOOK.COM for discounts. PLUS it include 3-in-1 Disneyland Supreme Meal coupons each ticket (Meals at disneyland costs 80-150HK$ so expensive!).

You MUST rent a 3G pocket wifi at KLOOK.COM (with HK$500 deposit) at URoaming. it will be very very HELPFUL so you won't get lost! The wifi connection will help you getting to your destination using Google Map (or any alike APP) using your smartphone. URoaming staffs are very friendly and helpful.

BUT do not purchase the PEAK TRAM coupons! (again, at KLOOK.COM), even the package with Madamme Tussauds and Sky Pass, because you still have to queue in ticketing booth even buying an E-ticket, the minimum waiting time is 45mins!!! We end up not using our coupons that costs us HKD300 because falling in line that long is a waste of time if your schedule is packed and you only have 3-4days in Hong Kong.

It's best to choose the location of your accomodation carefully and Plan ahead of your trip for STRESS-FREE vacation!

This is a must do in HK.
Travel at a leisurely pace and see the old HK buildings stubbornly holding their ground against looming high rise.

A short walking distance to the west of Central, Sheung Wan retains the flavors and sights of older days’ Hong Kong. It is also gentrifying fast. In a radius of about 300m centered on the Holiday Inn Soho Express Hotel, you’ll find small hole-in-the-wall” restaurants popular at lunch time with office workers keen to eat for around HKD30, stylish bars and cafes, boutique hotels, antique stores, art galleries, the famous streets lined by shops selling birds’ nets, dried seafood, teas, mushrooms, ingredients for Chinese medicine, etc. In terms of population, Sheung Wan has also become kind of a Petite France, so numerous are French expatriates haunting these streets and trying their luck at entrepreneurship with cafes, restaurants, sandwich or wine shops. Just to name a few: Monsieur Chatte (fairly pricy but very good sandwiches), La Rotisserie (excellent chicken from Brittany), La Creperie (popular for set lunch), La Cabane (wine and cheese in a congenial atmosphere), Les Fils a Maman (traditional French home cooking), Man Mo Café (stylish place offering slightly conceptual fusion dim sum)

After visiting the area and Western Market Hall, we took the traditional narrow double decker tram and from upstairs it was interesting to see the traditional Chinese shops drying products in the street
