Edmonton is one of Canada’s fastest growing cities with over a million residents and is also known to be Canada’s sunniest city (yay!). Being located in Alberta, Edmonton is a big city with country side roots and offers a cool mix of old vs new. I got to spend 5 days in there back in September and here are my top things to do in Edmonton.
Amber is a 2 Michelin star restaurant in Hong Kong, ranked No. 24 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and No. 3 on The Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants List. Chef Richard Ekkebus is the star behind Amber, my culinary highlight in Hong Kong (hands down!).
When visiting Hong Kong, I had it on my list to visit a good quality Chinese restaurant. Of course I tried the street food, the dai pai dongs and a small Sichuan restaurant, but I wanted a real sit down experience to add to my restaurant list. Having heard great things about One Harbour Road, I paid a visit during lunch time. One Harbour Road is located a short walk from Wan Chai station, very close to the exhibition centre. The new chef Chan Ho Cheong has added his own unique twist to Chinese cuisine which I got to try.
As a part of my 2 day trip to explore Macau back in May, I stayed at the MGM MACAU for one night. MGM MACAU is located on the older part of town along with some of the most classic casinos and is only a 15 minute walk into the town centre.
MGM brings a whole new meaning to the word Grand. It’s the kind of hotel which you don’t need to step foot outside of because there’s literally everything under one roof. At MGM MACAU you’ll find great food, indoor and outdoor pools, spas, casinos, shops, an art gallery and everything else that you’d expect from a 5 star establishment.
