In 2003, I went to Hongkong on a three-day pleasure trip with some friends. All we did was roam around the city, nothing was planned, it was a "come what may" type of a thing. We joined few tours which had cost us a lot, mostly due to miscommunication! We hardly understood each other as most locals don't speak English and we don't understand Chinese so we were like communicating through sign language. Another problem we encountered was food. We starved for 3 days too because we couldn't read the menu in the restaurants and when we tried to ask what was it, they couldn't explain to us because they did not understand. One time I asked for one order just to taste what kind of dish it was, we were given one order each thinking I meant one for each! My friend ordered chicken but she was given a napkin, which really drove us nuts! Even the tours were poorly planned. We could have done a lot better had we planned our trip including the city tours earlier.
