It’s summer time and that marks the time of long long summer holidays in school or colleges. And those in jobs are probably so tired and consumed with life that they can’t wait to escape! So basically, what is everyone doing in summers? Cribbing about life, planning vacations, going for vacations, and coming back from vacations only to live in the holiday hangover. Exactly in that order.
Where are you heading to beat the chill this time? The grapevine and the swagerazzi say that Hong Kong is the hottest holiday destination this season. And why shouldn’t it be. It’s a developed and organized city, offering the perfect mix of urban cityscape and cultural vibrancy.
For those of you not familiar with this side on the map, Hong Kong is an autonomous territory lying on the southern coast of China at the Pearl River Estuary and the South. Known for its iconic skyline and its deep natural harbor, it is one of the three most important financial centers alongside New York and London, and the world's number one tourist destination city. After becoming a sovereign nation in 1997, Hong Kong has positioned itself as a major commercial hub in Asia.
So, convinced much to do Hong Kong this summer?
Hong Kong brings with it a fine flavor of China topped with cosmopolitan capitalistic hues. Great place to shop and to enjoy sumptuous international cuisines. Take the century-old tram up to Victoria Peak, and look out over the towering city skyline, visit historical temples, like Man Mo Temple and Po Lin Monastery, ride the Star Ferry to immerse yourself in the beautiful views of Victoria Harbor, Hong Kong won’t disappoint. Famous travel attractions like Disneyland Park, Lantau Island, Repulse Bay and the likes are waiting for you with open arms.
If you are going to explore Hong Kong this time around, I suggest you do it right and do it stylishly. Own the place with your great style, as the place deserves it.
Here are a couple of essentials I suggest you must pick for your wanderlust vacation.
The thumb rule of travelling remains that you pack a lot of layers. And that holds true for Hong Kong too. Coz you will be juggling between air conditioning and outdoors very often. And this place can get unpredictable with rains.
Make sure you carry at least one or two smart shrugs that can go with a variety of outfits.
This season, boho shrugs are quite in. It would be great to experiment with them.
A black dress is an essential when packing up. You could have a clubbing scene or an elegant affair to attend. A black dress will come in handy for these occasions. Or just a casual day out shopping. There are literally 50 shades to accessorize and style around a black dress. You can’t do without one.
Distressed Denims and Easy Tee
Coz travelling in jeans and tee is so easy. And they come in handy at all times.
Sporty Tights/ Sporty Dress + Sneakers
At leisure is a hot hot trend this season. Also, it’s very easy to strut around in and very easy to ace!
Bright and fun and all things nice, a maxi dress is a safe pick that will take you places. A maxi is a great way to cover up while looking all statement-worthy (and picture worthy).
A woman in heels is a woman on a mission. But a woman in flats is a woman on a vacation! Flats are the way to have fun! Go easy, go around places in flats. Just keep your edge with that style factor up and intact.
So, are you ready to stand stellar and cause ripples in Hong Kong yet?
