I've never travelled before but I'm planning to for the first time next year and I think the first place that I'll go to is Hong Kong since I have a friend that's from Hong Kong and he'll probably go back there next year and it'll be good to have a local there to show me around. Is this a good idea? Would Hong Kong be a good place for a first-time traveller?

    Probably. You can easily get by with English and it has a modern transit system. If you're not used to big cities though, maybe take a trip to whatever nearest one in your country is.

      I live in a big city and Australia is pretty close to Hong Kong, plus, like I said, I'll have a local with me so I don't have anything to stress about.

        >so I don't have anything to stress about when it comes to getting around and communicating with anyone.

        Is what I should've said.

    Be ready to pay through the nose. HK is by far the most expensive place I've ever been, and I've travelled a fair bit in Asia and Europe. I went on a visa run with cash and by the end of it I was scrounging for every cent. I recall beer on tap for 30 USD a glass.

        That's genuinely absurd what the frick. Even the NFL stadium I went to yesterday wasn't that pricey

        Imagine paying $30 for a drink only for a local to slip a bag of hard drugs in your bag and call the cops on you. Enjoy jail

          I have drugs reshapes to look like a prescription to take into the country. Then I crush it into baggies once I’m in, at the airport I place it in the pocket of locals. I do it in the bathroom tho so no cameras to catch me.

    My first time travelling alone and first time outside of Europe was Hong Kong. It was great tbh, super convenient transport everywhere, good food, and if you'll have company it's even better. Don't stay on Hong Kong island, go out on the mainland. It's a lot more varied than you might think, you can even do hiking and shit.

    Hong Kong is a great place! Went there fore friend's wedding and able to explore the markets for cheap shoppings and local restaurants.
    If you have local friends, it would probably be not a problem, but there is.a site called AutoReserve: https://autoreserve.com/en/
    They will make reservations by calling the restaurants on behalf. They looks like Japanese company but have extensive listings for Hong Kong restaurants. Happy travel!

    In case you’re new to the SighSee board: the posts about drugs being planted on you are a meme, it’s funny to mention drug-planting at every opportunity. Also spine-snapping, but that one is more obviously satirical. So in seriousness: As a first time traveller keep an eye on your possessions and you’ll be fine. No need to worry yourself sick.

    As for going through airport security it’s the same anywhere in the world. Just notify the agent you are nervous because it’s your first time and request they use extra lube. You’ve got this champ.
