We all have funny travel stories to tell after travelling. That is part of the fun of travelling to any part of the world.
Yesterday my husband got me thinking as I was getting ready to go out for our Valentines meal to a local restaurant and he said, ‘don’t do a Hong Kong’.
Only him and I know ‘what a Hong Kong’ is! But I thought it would be fun to share.
Our Funny Travel Story
We were travelling around Asia for a season (this was when I was still working onboard the cruise line too) and we were in Hong Kong for few days, so we went out for dinner.
My husband asked the port agent where the best place was to eat seafood. The guy gave us an address and organised transport to get us there.
So, in the meantime, I get dressed up to the nines in a beautiful black dress and high heels. I was ready for a lovely evening out and it was very near to Christmas.
I’m ready to go, our transport arrives and off we go. We are driving past all these very nice hotels and restaurants, but we keep going.
Where are we?
By this point, we have left the hustle and bustle of the city and end up at a market. It was a fish market!
We got out of the car and thought there must be a nice restaurant inside the market.
It was a fish market where you pick your food and then choose one of the little restaurants within the market to cook it for you.
The food was fantastic and not cheap! But, I was just very overdressed for this type of night out!
Anyway, we had a good night and we always laugh about it now. I like to check the dress code now when I can.
In the end, I did get my night out in a fabulous restaurant in Hong Kong at the Renaissance Hotel and I got dressed up I felt great!
