Holidays in Hong Kong

Wow. I'm back home now after an amazing week of holidays in Hong Kong. This is effectively my second visit (though technically actually my 4th, not including the trips when I was just 3 and 6 years old respectively, and barely remember anything from those visits).

Having said that, it was a truly eye opening week, filled with an abundance of tasty food, many pretty and interesting sights, and learning to get around within the hustle and bustle of a modern metropolis. There were contrasts everywhere (rich/poor, shiny/scruffy, fast/slow) and often even side by side. But underlying all of the vibrancy was the sheer convenience that comes with abundant availability everywhere you turn.

Some of the highlights of this trip were:
  • Flying on the A380's
  • The MTR System
  • Hong Kong's Architecture
  • Macau (especially The Venetian and Fernando's)
  • Peak Tram
  • Char Leong
  • Tasty Food
  • Spending time with relatives
Details about these and more will be featured in an upcoming series of posts to appear here as I get them written up (and photos checked and uploaded).
