Hong Kong exhibits, Hong Kong travel guide, Hong Kong travel guide for family and kids


Hong Kong is one of the places in Asia that is very close to my heart, and it is also my regular hangout place to celebrate each year’s long weekend.

Each time I travel to Hong Kong, there is always something new and I couldn’t help but to snaps some photos, and wouldn’t mind if I always go out alone. Hong Kong is a very lively place – both day and night, for all ages.

Aside from affordable foods, cheap shopping (yes, I know some of the vintage shops in Hong Kong) and beautiful skyline – I also enjoys visiting numerous colorful exhibitions in many parts of Hong Kong malls and public parks.

So for those of you planning to have a weekend in Hong Kong with your family, friends, lovers, or even going solo – check out these kawaii exhibitions you’ll truly love!

PS. Don’t forget to bring your camera, with fully-loaded battery energy and lots of spaces on your SD-Cards for more fun selfies and wefies!
