Autumn Stroll in Hong Kong - Tim Ho Wan, the Dim Sum Specialist

We left Macau before noon to catch the ferry to Hong Kong. Arrived at Shun Tuck Centre in Sheung Wan after 2 p.m. and the hotel shuttle was already there waiting for us. We checked in Dorsett Regency Hotel, a newly opened 4-star hotel in Kennedy Town, the tip of the Western District. Upon settling down in our rooms, we walked out of the hotel and boarded the tram in front of our hotel. The tram took us to the Central MTR station where we purchased our Octopus card and boarded the train to Mongkok. In fact, there was a mini bus service from our hotel to Mongkok but we would like to experience taking a tram ride since there were still hours before dinner time.

We had our early dinner at Tim Ho Wan, the Dim Sum Specialist which has won the One Star Michelin award for two consecutive years. Dim Sum was decent, fresh and appealing to the eyes. Every time I travelled to Hong Kong, Tim Ho Wan is the only dim sum restaurant I would patronise. My all-time favourite is of course the baked Char Siew Pau with sweet flaky topping.
