Arrival and a Walk around Hong kong island
After two flights and 16 hours of traveling, I arrived in Hong Kong. I hopped on a Double Decker bus that runs from the Airport to Causeway Bay. The ride usually takes 25-30 minutes and, is the cheapest way to travel from the airport at $40HK or $5.19US.
With no sim card for my cellphone, I had to ask locals where to find the hostel. I picked the Comfort Hostel HK due to price and location. The hostel is 1 MTR stop from Wan Chai, and 3 MTR stops from Central. Both neighborhoods are the most popular party areas in Hong Kong.

I called my friend Waleed to meet up. We met at Raw Hookah with another mate who's from St. Martins in The Caribbean. We ordered the Double Green Apple shisha with two shots of Jose Cuervo Tequila and a Corona. We then headed to an Egyptian restaurant, The Nile. Here we had chicken hummus with round pitta bread. It was the best hummus I'd ever had, hands down. The Nile also has great shish from what I hear. I will have to stop by again to try it.
