give the lanson place hong kong a try 0

Posted on December 29, 2008 by dorisch

When I travel, I enjoy staying with luxury accommodations. Actually luxury can be represented in many ways and it doesn’t have to be the most expensive. During our stay in Hong Kong last month, I was well impressed by the small luxury hotel we stayed in. The Lanson Place Hong Kong still left many fond memories in my memory tank and I can’t wait to be back there again.

I know some people go as far as to examine every detail of the hotel room. I read in some travel forum and some reviewers even go on to talk about the Grohe faucets or luxury amenities used by the hotel! Though the Lanson Place is not a five star property, it is a small luxury hotel that is personal, friendly, professional, casual, comfortable and pleasant. So if you are heading to Hong Kong next time, why not give The Lanson Place Hong Kong a try?

have an enjoyable christmas 0

These days, I find it hard to travel with my laptop cos’ it’s got everything I need to keep in touch with friends back home. Perhaps, a lightweight laptop will be helpful and useful since it will take off the bulk of the luggage weight away. Thus, I am hoping for a 10″ Acer or Asus this Christmas. This would mean that I can be more connected and portable whenever I’m up and about in some parts of the world.

It’s Christmas eve so it’s another time where I’m wishing everyone here a blessed Christmas. Have a enjoyable one.

online hotel search tool 0

Posted on December 19, 2008 by dorisch

One of the great ways to save on hotel accommodation when you travel this festive season is to search at one site and get multiple results at one go. I first started using online hotel search tool when a friend who was searching for Ephedrasil hardcore happened to stumble upon a hotel search site.

What’s great about hotel search tool is that you can compare rates of more than 30+ sites without navigating around too many windows. You can search and find the lowest rates in your travel destination and find out more about the desired accommodation while making the booking online instantly. How convenient especially if you need last minute hotel accommodation this festive season.

another trip to Hong Kong, I hope 0

It was hard shopping for the right Christmas gifts while I was in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Though Hong Kong’s toys were alot cheaper than Malaysia and the toys were in abundance, I personally prefer personalized books or gifts for my little boy.

Being a lover of books, I took him to Page One in Harbour City after a trip to Toy R Us in Ocean Terminal. What I loved most about the Toy R Us in Ocean Terminal was the numerous capsule machine available at the entrance of the store. It was amazing! I bought several of the Cars series and that got my boy so excited too. Now that we are back in Malaysia, I can only look forward to another trip to Hong Kong next year.

thankful for a wonderful vacation 0

It has been a wonderful vacation so far. We are thankful to stay with some of the nicest hotels in tokyo and hong kong which add memories to our family vacation.

I’ve always enjoy quality hotels and apartments when we travel. I like to enjoy vacation and experience a home away from home feeling. Isn’t it great if you can have a home theater seating in your room in a small scale and relax in front of a good movie after a long day from walking and shopping.

We will be checking in to The Venetian Macao tomorrow and I hope that this suite experience will be a sweet one!

hong kong fine food and people 0

Posted on December 06, 2008 by dorisch

Besides fine dining and gourmet delicacies, Hong Kong is an interesting place to watch for the latest trends. When it comes to a grand occasion, the people put in great efforts to put on their best including a fine gown and tuxedos for the sophisticated individuals.

You can expect to pay a little more for fine food in restaurants even if they are located amidst the old buildings. The HOng Kong people love food and care to find the best to satisfy their gastronomic cravings. I am indulging in a new dessert everyday before heading back home. It feels sad to know that I will be missing all the unique dessert varieties at Hui Lau San, Honeymoon dessert and Lucky dessert stores!

missing the lanson place hotel hong kong 0

I am feeling a little melancholic as this is my last night at The Lanson Place hotel. Though it’s located at a quiet corner next to a door hardware shop and a couple provision shops, it is so near to all the action and activities.

The Lanson Place is one hotel I would strongly recommend for anyone who is planning to visit Hong Kong. The staff is friendly, helpful, sensitive to the guests’ needs and very professional. The service is fantastic though it’s not a 5 star hotel. Near to Jardine Bazaar where all the good food is, it is so convenient to taste all the local delicacies in an unpretentious setting. I felt kinda sad that we are moving to another hotel tomorrow. But then again, I will be back again to the Lanson Place hotel the next time I visit Hong Kong.
