We’ve been on the road for 27 days and finally made it to our last destination city on our “amazing race”, Hong Kong.
I’d love to hear any tips from you guys for what we shouldn’t miss while here. Any sites that we can’t leave without seeing? Know of a great hole-in-the-wall tailor shop or place to buy anything else unique here? Hit the comments!
We fly back home Wednesday, so just bear with me a little bit longer and I’ll be updating the site just like before our Round-The-World trip.
If you’re going to do such a trip, definitely save up the extra miles and do it in First Class. It makes the air travel part of the fun and experience of the trip as opposed to something you dread. Qantas even emailed me yesterday before our First Class flight from Melbourne to Hong Kong to ask us when we would like to schedule our complimentary spa/massage treatments before the flight! And while when paying with cash First class can cost 30 times the coach fare, when paying with miles it’s less than double the miles that you need for coach. Beware though, once you fly business or first on an international flight it will be very hard to ever go back to steerage again…I just hope that the mileage game will be around forever!
