Thanks to TravelSkills reader R.S. who responded to my request for good restaurants in Hong Kong on our Facebook page! She suggested Yardbird (In SoHo, near Central), where we went last night and had a delicious, fun meal (chicken yakitori) and mixed with some interesting locals. We are also taking her up on her tip to visit Ozone on the 118th floor of the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong where we are currently holed up watching Typhoon Mujigae roll in from our room on floor 113. Wow!
Our fave comment on TravelSkills this week comes from B.L. about signing up for PreCheck- we always like it when readers take our advice! “I just signed up for TSA pre, and it took only five business days to get the trusted passenger number. I was one that was randomly selected for TSA pre before.”
A few newsy nuggets from other sources that we missed on TravelSkills this week:
