In Pics: Yami Gautam’s latest pictures from Hong Kong can put any travel blogger to shame – Yami Gautam recently spent over five days in Hong Kong and by the looks of it, she had the time of her life. The actress went to districts like the Old Town Central and Sham Shui Po. Yami, who has always loved fashion, interacted with traditional artisans and designers to understand the techniques and methods that go into weaving Chinese outfits.
She even wore the traditional Qipao that was made for her. She headed to the Po Lin Monastery and Big Buddha and managed to visit a few ancient temples in the central city too. As someone who is adventurous and doesn’t mind an adrenaline rush, Yami took to Kayaking in Sai Kung and dining on the Aqua Luna too.
On the food front the actress tried traditional dimsums, iconic egg waffles that have now become a craze in India and drank many cups of delicious Chinese tea.
Speaking about her latest travel, Yami said in a statement, “I never realized how beautiful and fun Hong Kong is as a holiday destination. There is so much to explore here and it’s been absolutely thrilling to discover Hong Kong as a local would. I’ve truly enjoyed. The people have been so warm and welcoming and all the discoveries I’ve made from chic, charming districts to temples and monasteries, secret markets and fashion spots to delicious local food have been beyond impressive. I would love to come back to explore more of this vibrant city.”

The egg waffle, one of Hong Kong's most well known and loved street snacks. These fluffy, mouth watering golden cakes can be found all over the country. You can either try the classic egg waffle or something with a modern twist. After roaming the streets of #ShamShuiPo , I have realised there is something for everyone 😃 @discoverhongkong #traveltales #YamiInHongkong Styled by @mohitrai Hair and make up by @loveleen_ramchandani Pics by @mann012
The liveliest night market in Hong Kong, Temple St is a place to shop for reasonable clothes, watches, electronics, footwear, cookware and everyday items. Any marked prices should be considered suggestions – this is definitely a place to bargain 😉 One should not miss this experience for sure when here. @discoverhongkong #traveltales #YamiInHongkong Styling by @mohitrai Hair and make up by @loveleen_ramchandani Pics by @mann012
