Thanksgiving in Beverly Hills

This year my family and I spent Thanksgiving in Beverly Hills (a.k.a. one of my favorite cities!)  Although LA is only a 1 hour flight away, I never spend enough time down in beautiful SoCal!  Beverly Hills is my favorite place for 2 main reasons: 1) shopping  2) the atmosphere.  We stayed at the Montage Hotel which was perfect because it was only a 2 minute walk to Rodeo Drive!  Let’s be honest and just call Rodeo Drive the shopping heaven of California!  With a plethora of designer boutiques and department stores I spent all 3 days of my trip on Rodeo (besides Thanksgiving day because everything was closed!)  But that’s only part of the reason why I love it so much down there.  The lavish hotels, spectacular food, and roaring Ferrari’s are the other reason.  The entire vibe of Beverly Hills just screams “luxe” and that’s why I fell in love with the place.  Let’s just say that I went home with 1 extra suitcase filled with Dior, Versace, Chanel, Miu Miu, and a few too many things from Barney’s!  This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for everything that I have, especially my parents who are so generous, loving, and supportive in all aspects of my life.  Keep reading to find out more about how I spent my Thanksgiving holiday!  And please excuse the lack of photos as I was too excited about all the shopping and forgot to take photos (oops!)

Last summer, I took a trip to Taiwan to visit my grandparents whom I haven’t seen in over 4 years!  After landing in Taiwan, we stayed there for a few days and then the three of us (me, my mom, and my grandma) flew to Hong Kong from Taiwan.  In addition to the plethora of malls, shopping, and designer boutiques which was basically heaven on Earth for me, the food fell nothing short of amazing.  I have to admit that I was never a fan of Chinese food in the United States, so I was not too thrilled with having to eat Chinese food almost every meal for the next week.  But, I was pleasantly surprised as the food at EVERY restaurant we went to in Hong Kong was so incredibly delicious and tasteful (even the sushi and pasta was amazing!).  So, if you love high-quality, Instagram-worthy, chic, and inventive dining experiences, check out the list below and Hong Kong should undoubtedly be at the top of your list of travel destinations!
