Ah, TripAdvisor.

If you’ve ever wondered what the worst TripAdvisor reviews have to say about Hong Kong, read on.

RECOMMENDED: If you want to know what makes real Hongkongers mad, you can find that out here. Maybe we should add TripAdvisor reviews to that list.

Knutsford Terrace

Knutsford Terrace

This irate reviewer described TST’s premiere drinking spot as a ‘stinking alley’ and ‘a cesspool of fetid environ’ pandering to triads. Let’s hope they never went to LKF.

They’re kinda right. What real Hongkonger actually takes the tram? It’s Bus 15 or the Morning Trail for us.

We love the Star Ferry here at TOHK, so it’s a shame this reviewer sees the service as old and busted rather than appreciating its old-school charm.

Hong Kong Tramways

Yeah, taken at face value this review is right about the tram system. Still, that misses its historical and cultural meaning and even its sheer affordability as a means of transport for everyone in Hong Kong.
