W Hong Kong Hotel Review

Written by , Posted in Hong Kong, Hotel Review, Luxury Hotel - 5 Star Review, Photography, Places Visited

This Easter we decided to not fly out one of the many destinations in Asia that are just a hop, jump and skip away from Hong Kong, and stay put. Even though we’ve lived in Hong Kong for three years, there are still so many places that we still haven’t visited in this world city. One place that we’ve always wanted to check out a bit more was the W Hong Kong Hotel in Kowloon. I’ve used the W Hong Kong Hotel for training courses and had breakfast there. On both occasions, I was extremely impressed by the modern chic decor, facilities and superb service.

Haitang Bay Gloria Hotel Review, Sanya – Highly Recommended

Written by , Posted in China, Hotel Review, Luxury Hotel - 5 Star Review, Photography, Places Visited, Resort Review

haitang_bay_gloria_review_sanya-11

This is the first hotel / resort review for this website and it’s based on a cracker of a place: the amazing Haitang Bay Gloria Resort in Sanya, China!

Considering I get most of my (currently) traffic from the United States, I can positively say that most of you, my valued readers, probably have not even heard of Sanya. In short, Sanya is one of the most southernmost cities on Hainan Island (neighbours Vietnam) and is dubbed as the Hawaii of the Orient, mostly for its white sand beaches and tropical climate. I did a quick run down of Sanya and some tips and advice on a previous post. Being only one hour and 20 minutes away from Hong Kong, it’s now a top location for us to get away to. (more…)

Sanya, China’s Hidden Secret

Sanya, China - Haitang Bay Gloria Hotel Resort

Sunrise in Sanya. April 2013

If you’ve been following my tweets or instagrams (@mr_gadget), you may have noticed the hashtag #Sanya mentioned a lot. It’s because we’re currently on Easter vacation for a week here, staying at a gem of a place I found on TripAdvisor – Haitang Bay Gloria Hotel, which is currently ranked #1 out of 700 hotels. The hotel review will be completed after the duration of our stay, but I have to mention how splendid this place is.

Sala Thai Restaurant Review – Hong Kong

Written by , Posted in Food Blog Hong Kong, Hong Kong, Restaurants Hong Kong

Sala Thai Restaurant Review Hong Kong

This is my first food blog post on this humble little blog of mine. That should set the scene. I will improve and get better at this!  I’ve posted about food before, such as the Michelin Star rated Pierre at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong on my Mr.Gadget website, but this is where I’m going to try to be a bit more serious. What better place to review first than one of our favourite local restaurants that we frequent quite often, Sala Thai Restaurant.
