Yami Gautam, the Kaabil and Uri actress was invited to collaborate and become the ambassador of one of Asia’s most modern cities, Hong Kong. The actress was invited by the Hong Kong Tourism Board to promote the city and all that it has to offer.
With a large industry, a vibrant expat population and immigrant population, the city has imbibed various aspects of each culture and added it to their vast cultural carpet. Yami is the perfect choice for the same because of her likeability, style and fashion game.
The actress spent over 5 days exploring the territory. She went to districts like the Old Town Central and Sham Shui Po. Yami who has always loved fashion interacted with traditional artisans and designers to understand the techniques and methods that go into weaving Chinese outfits. She even wore the traditional Qipao that was made for her.
Yami headed to the Po Lin Monastery and Big Buddha and managed to catch a few ancient temples in the central city too. As someone who is adventurous and doesn’t mind an adrenaline rush, Yami took to Kayaking in Sai Kung and dining on the Aqua Luna too. On the food front, the actress tried traditional Dimsums, iconic egg waffles that have now become a craze in India and drank many cups of delicious Chinese tea.
Yami truly believes on every holiday, one must immerse themselves into the local culture, that is when a holiday is most enjoyed. She also added, “I never realized how beautiful and fun Hong Kong is as a holiday destination. There is so much to explore here and it’s been absolutely thrilling to discover Hong Kong as a local would. I’ve truly enjoyed. The people have been so warm and welcoming and all the discoveries I’ve made from chic, charming districts to temples and monasteries, secret markets and fashion spots to delicious local food have been beyond impressive. I would love to come back to explore more of this vibrant city.”
