Hong Kong Guide to Sydney: join the discovery with travel vloggers Nick and Helmi

Helmi Hong Kong cake

This is the year we turn more of our travel focus inward, looking in our own backyard rather than our favourite ‘overseas’. But that’s not a bad thing!

The Hong Kong Tourism Board has teamed up with Aussie travel vloggers and passionate foodies, Nick and Helmi, to recreate a Hong Kong experience without leaving Sydney. We caught up with them to reveal Nick and Helmi’s top spots for readers to enjoy a taste of Hong Kong.

Kowloon Cafe

Located in Sydney’s Chinatown the Kowloon Café brings authentic Hong Kong cuisine to Sydneysiders. Delivering a “cha chaan teng” (Hong Kong style) vibe to diners, you’ll be transported to Hong Kong while consuming local favourites including curry fish balls, spam & egg sandwiches, and Hong Kong Style milk tea.
