In April I am going to Asia for the first time. I'll be in Hong Kong for 3 nights, Bankok for 2 nights, then travelling around Thailand (Chiang Mai, Phuket, Krabi). My question is where to go in Hong Kong and Bankok. I want to make the most of this trip by eating some great meals. I don't have a budget per se, but I appreciate good value and I'd like to eat where the locals would go for traditional food and prefer not to eat at hotels, as they are more touristy (is this a mistake?). Here is what I have on my list. Does this look like a good plan?
The Manor (goose)
Lei Garden (soup)
Sichuan Da Ping Huo Restaurant (Private Kitchen)
Taling Ping (Thai)
Somboon (Curried Crab)
