On Day 7 of our Hong Kong trip, Kate planned for a trip to Shen Zhen. In the morning, we woke up (stayed at Ah Shan Hostel) and started to look for a typical Hong Kong Cafe for our breakfast. We visited a congee place and had one of the best boatsman congee (艇仔粥)!
Of course we had more than that for breakfast (I mean with Tom around)…
After a hearty meal, we headed to the Mong Kok MTR where we took a 40 mins ride to Luo Hu checkpoint at Shen Zhen China.
The truth is that a trip from Hong Kong to Shen Zhen is very much like a trip from Singapore to Malaysia. Through the higher standard of living, commuters derive a higher purchasing power at the neighbouring city. So likewise, we went shopping!
Frankly speaking, it was relatively mundane and we would prolly not make another trip over if we were to visit Hong Kong (rather use the time to find more dim sum places in Hong Kong!)
We decided to use the night to visit 2 eateries which we found from the recommendations of discoverhongkong.com
Unfortunately, the recommendations turned out to be not as good as we have anticipated. Which prompted us to write the post about “Debunking Recommendations from DiscoverHongKong.com : What NOT to eat in Hong Kong”

And it was with a disappointing heart that we tucked into bed that evening.
But as they say, “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings!” and our Hong Kong trip is still not over yet! Stay tuned for more recommendations (more hits than misses) in our last 2 days in Hong Kong!
