    Best Country Ever

    Hong kong negara yang indah dan modern. masyarakatnya mempunyai pemikiran yang terbuka dengan begitu banyaknya jajanan pinggir jalan yang menggugah selera. Tempat yang sangat indah di antara perbukitan dan bangunan-bangunan tinggi

    HK has a great train system (MTR) making it easy to go around. Buy an octopus card and you're good to go!

    Insider Tip:Buy tickets for Disneyland, Ocean Park, Madamme Tussauds or Peak Tram from China Travel Services (CTS). They have lots of branches around HK. They offer tickets in lower price and sometimes with meal. Aside from CTS, you can buy tickets online and take advantage of discount promos on sites. There are lots of phone apps you can download for easy navigation on MTR.

    Beautiful Island with a concrete jungle

    This island has beautiful panoramic views, and with a twist of rat race and business suits at every corner. Since HK, has a strong Financial market, and since the colonization of the British years ago, its very westernized. Its filled with lots of people with money and fancy cars left and right. Sadly, Hong Konger that are lower in status have a difficult time making ends meet. Real Estate has gone higher every year and there's too many high end retail stores. Too me its another concrete jungle.

    Insider Tip:MTR is very easy to understand and to use. taxi are conveniently cheap. Hotels are expensive. food is moderately cheap.

    Hong Kong

    I made itinerary before I go, even about the transportation routes. Everything I made was very detail. But... Oo! Hong Kong is not as easy as you thought! I was lost couple of times. And every time I lost, it brings me excitement! Communicating with locals is quiet easy as well. Do zeh sai Hong Kong! :D

    Insider Tip:If you buy something at Mong Kok, offer 50% and dont give up! Dont believe at cheap foot massage, after they bring you to their massage center, the price was a lie. Debate and leave them if they do not want to follow the price they offered. :p

    Just a city

    It's quite expensive and not an awful lot to see, kinda like an Asian New York but without the charm.. It's just a city and it's worth seeing for a coulple of days but I wouldn't go all that way just for HK
