Dining with views
Qantas's Travel Blog included my tweet in their 'Dining with views' feature. Aw, thanks guys, glad you liked my tip.
The article was based on a question they sent out on Twitter:
@qftravelinsider it's that delicious time again... question: your restaurant pick with the best views? (can be anywhere) #foodfriday
to which I replied:
@e_ting imo HK's skyline is one of the best views in the world - Lobby Lounge @ InterCon or Aqua Luna junk boat (or a private one).
I felt I had to reply because 1. I love Hong Kong's skyline (as you can tell from the picture to your left) and am really proud of it despite the light pollution; 2. too many people would automatically suggest Hutong, which to me, is utterly overpriced and has unforgivably bad service (though Aqua Luna also belongs to the same owner - I think the junk at least makes it a more unique experience); 3. visitors to Hong Kong aren't often aware that the best (and most iconic) view of Hong Kong is looking at Hong Kong island from Kowloon side.
That's a lot of justification for a little tweet, but anyway, thanks again Qantas. Nice for an ex-Melburnian to be quoted on an Aussie website :)
