East HK Island, West or East Kowloon. Basically stay away from the Harbour and popular districts like Central, TST and Mongkok
euug2mo
although there is some lunch time drama, arguably, if you stay in areas like Central, Admiralty, and Wan Chai, youโ€™re already within the city and those areas tend to recover quickly
ipec2mo
so you wonโ€™t get โ€œstuckโ€ like you might in Kowloon
nblq2mo
I donโ€™t think it will descend quite as far as it did recently, though
oelnblzz2mo
Thanks for the input!
plzwxyej2mo
Ended up booking a place in Wan Chai. Planning to mostly work while there so I'll be stuck in cafes most of the time anyway
kmfaocazsnrk2mo
i'm flying in to Hong Kong tomorrow, just for a few hours
hiiulwavwngh2mo
airport => airport express => ifc mall (apple store) => airport express => airport
kcdvqqejgkuh2mo
but not sure if I should go somewhere else for a few hours
wbzliqhxabuc2mo
maybe Yat Lok Roast Goose for lunch or something, if anyone wants to join (probably around 11:30 - 12pm)
ougx2mo
ywsvsmyquhnvj but your airport express ticket rt in klook
eriz2mo
Itโ€™s cheaper and you get a QR code
qarw2mo
Plus they can charge in your local currency
hyqyvvbxfkku2mo
oh thanks!
mbch2mo
As far as food goes, it depends on what you like
wwmd2mo
Thereโ€™s a Tim Ho Wan in HK station which has the Michelin star char siu buns
ncio2mo
Personally, I think itโ€™s more HK to go for something like ๅ’–ๅ–ฑ็‰›่…ฉ than goose
sauv2mo
But if you want goose, for sure get the goose
qpnjnwigvfcx2mo
thanks for the suggestions! actually i might check out Tim Ho Wan
imlkndphkqtx2mo
the curry looks good too
ibcbpbsdkldv2mo
and the Klook app is awesome! I didn't know about that before
zavk2mo
theyโ€™re based in Hong Kong, lwvxrictbkrer but have a lot of asian coverage
oswd2mo
itโ€™s my go to for transportation
kqpw2mo
one trick Iโ€™ve learned is to hire a personal limo service through Klook for airport runsโ€ฆtheyโ€™re almost always independent drivers, and you can use them as personal drivers in the future
nmzu2mo
I have a personal driver on call in ~40 countries using this method
kdhpzrvkbrys2mo
this is really good! Thanks U0ELL0DV4!
qthe2mo
right-facing_fistleft-facing_fist glad you enjoyed it
lchj2mo
Their char siu baos are delicious
niiddw2mo
How are things in HK at present? Looks like the protests have died down somewhat? What's the situation like on the ground?
dtqe2mo
Itโ€™s up and down. Thereโ€™s a large march thatโ€™s approved for Sunday
xzqp2mo
Why are you asking? The answer is going to depend on why youโ€™re asking, since itโ€™ll explain what youโ€™re concerned about
dzyhawvgi2mo
heโ€™s a dark tourist
oxgixa2mo
hahaha - no, was just curious, that's all. I'm flying in next week so just wanted to know what to expect, how much disruption (MTR etc) there's likely to be...
hnkizttmgdi2mo
It depends on how it goes this coming Sunday
zwgasogacap2mo
Hey ๐Ÿ‘‹
Going to HK on Dec 17th, is it safe to stay at Causeway Bay Area?
bnwz2mo
Yes should be find axauysnkruks
ilqiznrph2mo
hey everyone! in town tonight and tomorrow night. anyone want to get dinner/tea/hang out?
xlkxxrgns2mo
going to disneyland tomorrow if anyone wants to join
tldruecy2mo
Iโ€™d rather go to ocean park, heard that Disneyland in hk is mediocre
suhoequw2mo
had so much fun there!
vvsqmxuru2mo
iโ€™m sure disneyland is lame af, but... no lines!
wpwrounyv2mo
so now that nomadlist is dead what do you all use to meet people when you travel?
rhaq2mo
is it dead?
tglg2mo
I think HK might just not be a super popular destination right now because of the unrest
xtbg2mo
(if you're talking about putting out feelers and not responding)
jhih2mo
as well, I've found that most "digital nomads" are pretty introverted
znxmcdq2mo
I agree, plus I'd say it has never been a popular nomad destination even before the protests
swexase2mo
the foreigners here are mostly bankers
rwmfson2mo
flmjzptcjc I'd have joined you to disneyland (as i've already been in oceanpark) if you stayed for one more day (tomorrow morning I'm free)
cugjpzfwy2mo
i remember back in the day getting groups of people together the night of to go out in Osaka, back when there was a dedicated Osaka channel.
jqstavbxg2mo
i have a feeling there are more people in HK now than there were in Osaka then, but ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ
inuk2mo
I think the type of people in Osaka are different
hlvq2mo
Hong Kong attracts a different crowd
khwbktfbizu1mo
vjljlujgmwdk just arrived in #hong-kong #china
bgoxvaddrjvg1mo
Hey guys!, im planning to go in january but just for 2 weeks. Anyone knows a good hostel ?
methgxuyczgh1mo
also, is there anyone in shenzhen ?
cjzkcwtc30d
ovdlctogxmvsb I'd recommend Wontanmeen in Prince Edward. They have a nice coffee shop downstairs and a few coffee shops nearby to work remotely
tyiuniuwuqwt30d
cool thanks!, hope the situation in hong kong improves by january
xhrcejqyeco30d
Stay tuned with the protest on 1 Jan
noiqaylx30d
jocthjutdmsc Whatโ€™s about to happen ?
ddekzvvuzuxm29d
tnsxqjmxkuxo shit that sounds bad
dgwkkvuksli29d
Not necessarily bad. The recent bigger protest after the election was quite peaceful. So it depends, especially youโ€™re planning for trips after this
cuesksbajpd29d
pxkcxxuxh Search for HK new year protest and you will find lots of information
wxirjatgjvpg29d
bkwzcqsgbwrj i see, if it gets bad i'll make a short stay then ... i guess my only worry is getting trap in the airport because of protestors, happened to me in barcelona
qotaplskpuj29d
Not likely for airport these days. I have been going in and out Airport a few times over the past year, all smooth
wphsnfzoyqw29d
Just in case, the airport express direct to HK station is always open too
wofysgommwlv29d
awesome, thanks for the tips!
cywjnno29d
I also want to go to hk, get visa then spend a month in shenzhen. Any obstacles you guys foresee?
bjtufgq28d
what area is safe to stay in hong kong next week?
fzuheou28d
IME any area is safe
ysszxwmnxc26d

juiphaeimhp24d

eginqlzw24d

lbjxofrxeqot24d
qcqimheu The Coffee Academics is very good, seems like a new place, very close to NOC
orbuuplkkimmps24d
Mmmmm - they make a fine ham & cheese croissant
xhhgzw24d
norpyegs I used to go a lot to the one in Causeway Bay. Pretty good, with plenty of outlets. It's a bit expensive, though (HK prices)

azqxspnayoz10d
gwvaxwtoyiaxg have you considered Singapore instead?
ehccvvhccp12h
Good idea or bad idea to come to Hong Kong for a weekend trip 7-11 Feb? Afraid theyโ€™ll take more drastic measures soon regarding the corona virus
kirikzo11h
bad idea, I'm escaping HK myself for a few days
cnzomyzkqf10h
Yeah I figured ๐Ÿ˜• too bad
fqswvnaiziloth4h
