The Blog

The Meraki Guide is a Hong Kong-based food, lifestyle and travel blog. 

Meraki (verb) is a Greek word meaning to do something with love, creativity and soul. I started this blog because I have a penchant for sharing recommendations and a fondness for creating visual content, so The Meraki Guide is the result of bringing together two of my greatest passions. 

If you're a lover of aesthetic visuals and are keen to discover hidden gems, then The Meraki Guide is for you. Whether it’s a new brunch place to catch up with old friends, a quaint cafe for an afternoon of reading, an outdoors workout to try or exciting ideas for your next holiday getaway, I hope The Meraki Guide inspires you to continue exploring, experiencing and living life to the fullest.
