Lan Fong Yuen {2 Gage St, Central, Hong Kong}: Our first stop was this authentic milk tea restaurant where I had some of the best tea of my life. I am currently craving it so I won’t be able to write about it without drooling. Just promise me you will go here and wait in line. It’s worth it!

Good Spring Co. {G/F 8 Cochrane Street,ย Central, Hong Kong}: Just down the street from the hotel there is a traditional tea house that’s been around for years. You can grab different varieties of daily teas or speak with the Chinese Medicine doctor {who speaks English} to mix up a special herbal tea just for you.

World’s Longest Outdoor Covered Escalator: Hey, if you’re in Hong Kong, why not? You should take a ride up the world’s longest outdoor covered escalator, located in the heart of Central. It’s fun, it’s silly and it’s a way for locals to get to/from work on a daily basis.

Man Mo Temple {124 Hollywood Rd, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong}: If you are strolling through the Central area of Hong Kong, you should definitely make a visit to this quaint temple that rests in the heart of the city.

Later in the day we strolled around the local shops. Traditionally, Chinese have decorated their houses with colorful flowers and lanterns which display messages of good wishes and fortune. These items along with local fish “wet markets” were all very prominent in the Central area, all within walking distance from The Landmark Mandarin Oriental.
