Did not meet our expectations. Its too expensive and not worth the price tag. They don't care about you once the payment is made and are very arrogant.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
