5 things to do in Hong Kong in September

Hong Kong, CHINA – Hong Kong has recently become a major crypto hub of the world. Here we have some reasons crypto enthusiasts might want to mark their calendars and head to Hong Kong in September 2018.

  1. Feel the cyberpunk vibe. 

Did you know that futuristic cityscapes in “Blade Runner” and “Ghost in the Shell” were modeled after Hong Kong? It is a high tech metropolis with a very distinctive aesthetics, embodying the spirit of cyberpunk. Walk around the city in the night to appreciate its noir urbanistic beauty. Even the rain (which is a likely event in September) doesn’t annoy you, it adds a final touch to the surreal dystopian atmosphere.

2. Celebrate Mid-Autumn festival, one of the most important Chinese festivals.

Celebrated on the full moon during the 8th month of the Chinese lunar calendar, it is one of the most beautiful Chinese festivals. Millions of Chinese lanterns will light up the city and the sky to worship the moon. Fire dragons up to 67 meters long and made with 70,000 incense sticks be paraded through the streets. The moon is heralded as a symbol of unity and has been the object of many romantic Chinese poems, one of which being: “May we live long and share the beauty of the moon together, even if we are hundreds of miles apart.”

3. Try the cheapest Michelin restaurant in the world. 

Michelin-starred restaurants tend to blow your mind not only with the food quality but also with the prices. But what if we tell you that there is a Michelin restaurant with prices below US$3? Well there is one in Hong Kong. It also happens to be located at the train station. Tim Ho Wan is reportedly the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world. Specialising in dim sum – a Hong Kong traditional cuisine – they deliver a great taste at extraordinarily cheap prices.

  1. Visit the biggest casino in the world by crossing the world’s longest sea-crossing bridge. 

Yes, its a lot of superlative descriptions in one sentence. What can we say, China is known for its ambitious projects. Macau – another Chinese special administrative region – is known to be a Las-Vegas of China with an addition of a charmingly odd cultural mix of Portuguese heritage with its Chinese present. It is also home to the biggest casino in the world: “Venetian”. Let’s admit, we all have a gambling edge to us (otherwise we would never invest in a cryptocurrency). Those of us who bought it back in 2008 know how sweet the winnings taste. Try your luck in Macau. And also try out the new bridge. Macau will be connected to Hong Kong and Zhuhai with the longest sea-crossing bridge which spans over 55km in the sea and has an estimated construction cost of US$17 billion. It is already completed and will be open for public traffic any day now.
