Barbecue might conjure up images of steaks and salad in a backyard, and while this is also common in Hong Kong it comes nowhere near the popularity of Chinese barbecue. Known as siu mei, restaurants serving these barbecued meats -- they also usually serve a delicious type of steamed chicken – are your window into traditional Chinese roasts.
It is impossible to miss this cuisine in Hong Kong because after the highly-seasoned meats are roasted on spits over an open fire or in a rotisserie oven, they are hung inside the restaurant and visible from the street. You’ll see it hanging in fast-food chains, high-end restaurants and supermarkets. It is a sight – and taste -- that is ubiquitous wherever there are Chinese communities.
Dim sum means ‘touch your heart’ and with as many as 150 items on a restaurant menu, and 2,000 in the entire range, it is a challenge to not find something you love. As Cantonese people tend to avoid fried foods early in the day, steamed dishes dominate most dim sum menus. There are also snack-sized portions of pan-fried, deep-fried, and baked served in bamboo containers, which are designed to be eaten communally and washed down with tea. Hence, going for dim sum is known as yum cha, which literally means ‘drinking tea.’ Usually a brunch or lunch affair, it is a common form of family, co-worker and other group get-togethers.
Today, dim sum restaurants come in all shapes and sizes, from straight shooting to high falutin’. Start with one of the large mid-priced eateries where in the midst of boisterous conversations you will see multiple generations gather around the table for a no-nonsense family feed and office workers enjoying a short but effective break from the daily grind. When you enter, let the waiter know how many people are in your group, be seated, decide on what type of tea you want, order your dim sum, and enjoy a quintessential Hong Kong experience!
As Hong Kong’s largest outlying island, Lantau Island is perhaps most famous internationally for being the home of Hong Kong International Airport. But it’s also well known among locals for its unspoilt countryside, lush green valleys and giant outdoor Buddha statue. This tour includes a visit to Ngong Ping 360, Hong Kong's spectacular tourism attraction that features a stunning cable car ride up a mountainside with breathtaking panoramic views of the airport, the South China Sea, lush mountains and the approaching Buddha statue. You’ll step off the cable car into the culturally themed Ngong Ping Village, which incorporates three major attractions: Walking with Buddha, Monkey's Tale Theatre and the Ngong Ping Tea House, along with a diverse array of eateries and shops.
Mandarin is the official language of China and is spoken by most of its population. While most hotels in the country employ staff who are fluent in other languages, visitors cannot count on communicating in English with people they meet outside of tourist facilities. It’s advisable to have addresses or instructions written down in Chinese to show to taxi drivers. All major streets have signposts in pinyin (the Romanisation system for Chinese characters), which make it easier to get around with the help of a map.
Many people in China, especially young people, study English and welcome the opportunity to practise with foreigners. Don't be afraid to ask for directions in English from people on the street. You’ll usually be rewarded with a polite and often heroic attempt to help.
