We had Tea at the Hong Kong Ritz with the Alaskan Travel Guru , the wonderful Scott McMurren who was on his way home at the end of his 2017 ‘Rush Around the World Tour’ via Indonesia. He was great to chat with whilst watching the ships sailing by in Victoria Harbour, 103 floors below us! Our interview took place high up in the ICC (International Commerce Center), Hong Kong.
Scott McMurren is passionate about travel. He spent 30 years in the travel industry and has been writing about his travels at Alaska Travel Gram since 1999. We chatted about markets, the famous Star Ferry and some of the quirkier Chinese New Year traditions. Have a listen to the interview between Scott and Amy on his podcast here. Alternatively, you can also read his article for the Alaskan Dispatch News. It’s titled “getting high in Hong Kong“!
It was great to catch up with Scott McMurren again as he whizzed through Hong Kong. This time he was on his “Good Morning Vietnam” tour. We visited the Canal Road villain hitters and enjoyed dim sum. Despite a few drops of rain (okay, we got soaked), we managed to roam Mongkok and explore some of the markets there. The rain brought a whole new meaning to going to a Wet Market!
