Dim Sums in Hong Kong
In ancient Chinese custom, it was considered inappropriate to mix tea with food. Once, a famous 3rd-century Imperial physician claimed that this would lead to excessive weight gain. As they found out that tea has the ability to aid in digestion and cleanse the palate, tea house proprietors began adding a variety of snacks, and that's how the tradition of Dim Sums in Hong Kong was born.
There are also snack-sized portions of pan-fried, deep-fried, and baked foods served in bamboo containers, which are designed to be eaten communally and washed down with tea. Therefore going for Dim sum is sometimes referred to as yum cha, which means drinking tea, and together completes a full tea brunch. When it comes to snacking in Hong Kong, Dim sums are the first thing that comes in mind.
Still, it took several centuries for the culinary art of Dim sum to develop. Today, Dim sum is served throughout China. But, the best chefs for this snack are found not in China, but in Hong Kong. These days, this snack itself is a main player on the culinary stage.
The diversity and a sheer number of Hong Kong Dim sum restaurants are stunning. From noisy Cantonese joints with madness in the air to hushed dining rooms where waiters anticipate your every move. Today, most restaurants have dispensed with the cart system. Instead, when you are first seated the waitress will hand you a menu and you use a pencil to mark off, which items you want and the number of orders.

Trip to Hong KongWould like to specially mention Ramandeep of Airwings who responded promptly and immediately every time we had a query We went on the trip because of him and had a nice time Vegetarian food is a problem and perhaps you can arrange food boxes for travellers as an option
Trip to Hong KongMust say very professionally managed booking experience and better than other more known portals I have booked earlier with. Would book again for next holiday. Things which could be better 1) recommendations of itinerary, hotel, travel insurance and SIM card option, and 2) better coordination (Was not bad) at destination country. Definitely Desert Safari with night camp dinner and Ferrari World are mandatory inclusions.
Trip to Hong KongThe trip was well organised...only thing was that after booking the quotation was changed...in macau ..the driver was a bit late to pick up us from the hotel..n before leaving no one could clearly say how to get into the ferry from the airport without luggage collection...anyway it was easy in the airport... It was a memorable trip...the best day was at disneyland...my kid had an amazing time....

Trip to Hong KongIt would be a great pleasure if you include lunch and dinner in the itinerary since there is limitations for indian food in some destinations. Even though the trip was awesome and your service was excellent.
Trip to Hong KongAwsome trip at Hongkong. But make sure client arrived at airport your travel agent should be their on time bcuz we land early and no one at airport time pick. With our name standy your agent should be their before timng.
Trip to Hong KongTrip is overall excellent apart from the Bangkok stay provided. We got stay at ibis Sukhumvit 50 which is 10 km far from the Bangkok main location and will take 1 hour to reach in usual traffic , also there is no restaurants near to the hotel , also some road construction was going on and was very difficult to reach. Hotel is good and clean , but is not idle for tourist since the local cab drivers can’t navigate there because of the road construction. Travel triangle must need to check the convinience of the travellers before booking to such locations. Only Bangkok stay made us upset , other everything was excellent.
Trip to Hong KongOverall it was a good experience. I appreciate the way my agents (Raman) helped me when I was stucked in HongKong during the protest. I recommend Air and wings to all. And whenever I plan my next adventure holidays I will contact them again.
