Living the High Life in Hong Kong
When I managed to pull myself out of bed, sometime late morning, I was able to take in my surroundings, and fully appreciate the grandeur that is the Four Seasons Hong Kong. I never thought that I’d get to stay at such a fancy hotel, but Jenn’s friend hooked her up on a great deal, and she kindly let me tag along. Still feeling a little lethargic and under the weather, it was a luxury to have such a comfortable bed!
I somehow forgot to take pictures of the room, but here’s a shot of the fancy bathroom.
Bulgari bath products after months on the road… it’s almost too much!
The Four Seasons HK is just stunning inside and out. The real show stopper is the Infinity Pool. So so pretty. It also happened to be one of those places where, the minute you sit down in a lounge chair, you are immediately attended to by staff providing you with a mist bottle, a cool towel, chilled water, and a fruit tray. Funny, they don’t offer those services at the Holiday Inn! It certainly wasn’t in line with my whole “see the real city” mindset. But it sure was a nice perk to live the high life, if only temporarily!
I was surprised at how humid and muggy it was. My camera kept fogging up!
But I still got a few good shots.
Onto more pressing matters… like food! Hong Kong is quite famous for it’s delicious cuisine, and after an intermittent diet of Choco-pies and Pringles, I was ready for a real meal. Luckily, several of Jenn’s friends had given her restaurant and bar recommendations. We started off at a reasonably priced Dim Sum restaurant. Again, I somehow did not take photos of all the amazing dishes we tried (I’m chalking it up to sleep deprivation), so you’ll just have to trust me. But the drink concoctions (non alcoholic, gasp!) and the pumpkin sesame cake were outstanding! All fueled up. Time to see the town!
