Today’s advise of the day is especially for those few geeks of the 42 Million (!!) anual visitors to Hong kong, that, no matter what roaming costs involved, will keep their soial life streams, Instagram uploads and Facebook updates running for the full 24 hours of each of their precious vacation days! get a break guys, here is why!
1. You are loosing a full day of Holidays
Reasearchs have shown that per 1 week, that we keep our gadgets running and “occasionally” check our online status and duties, will add up to a full day of starring into your small screen. That’s a full day of eating, drinking, Disney Landing (boooh!) or whatever other activity you might prefer on your Hong kong holiday (gambling and massage anyone?)
2. Give yourself a break
You are here for what? Exactly, holidays, not exploring the depths of the Apple Apps store. Breath the (not fresh) air of Hong Kong, try the massive amounts of delicious food, walk around and take pictures (if really needed use your iPhone), but don’t stick your face into your screen and waste your precious time off!
3. Chances are high you will fly home without your iPhone
Yep, I can tell countless stories of friends having lost their phones, gadgets and anyting else small and electronic in the black holes of Hong Kongs taxi backseats and hidden trapdoors of dining tables. Keep the online consumption restricted to your hotel room and enjoy an offline holiday instead.
4. Real 3D for Free + Unlimited Downloads of LiFestream
Whatever is happening outside the frame of your 3.5 inch screen is with 100% certainty better, bigger and faster than your online counterpart of impressions. Especially Hong kong will be able to deliver a nonstop stream of fantastic impressions that it counts to be taken in and consumed directly and raw, not through the lense of your iPhone camera of Youtube Video.
5. Do what you can do while you can do it!
Not much to add here, enjoy while you can, while looking at your iPhone screen doesn’t require any special abilities, hiking up to the peak, driving rollercoasters in Ocean Park or roaming Mongkoks busy streets can only be done with a certain portion of healthiness!
