Hello, I am Shiori, the corespondent of Hong Kong.
Food photography is now very popular around the world especially in Hong Kong. This trend is beginning with the rise of using smartphone and also SNS.
Nowadays, Hong Kongers always take the photo of the foods before they enjoy the meal. Almost all of the Hong Kongers share the food photo to the SNS like Facebook, Instagram, etc. Some of them just upload the photo to share with their friends while some of them may also include some descriptions or comments of the foods.This kind of action let other Hong Kongers feel interest on that restaurant. Recently, Hong Kongers always use the “TAG” functions when sharing things to SNS. This can let more people easy to find the things or topics they want.
Besides SNS, there is popular website of Hong Kong’s restaurants. This website includes plenty of information of restaurants in Hong Kong. You just simply choose which type of cuisine you may want to eat and also the area you want to go then there will be many choices of restaurant resulted. And some of the Hong Kongers also write down their comments after they go to the restaurant, some of them even act as a professional food bloggers too. Hong Kongers are always looking for the newest and interesting food and also they will first searching for the comments of the restaurant they plan to go. So it means “Word of mouth” is extremely important in our daily life or even doing business.
If you want to open a restaurant business or other kinds of business in Hong Kong, I think the most important thing is how to build up the brand name and how to promote it well by using SNS platform. If you have any questions on it, please always feel free to contact Asiaclick.
