Images Of Hong Kong

Enjoying a spectacular waterside setting, and home to one of the world's most famous skylines, Hong Kong is one of the most vibrant, dazzling, and electric (literally) cities in the world. Neon signs advertising everything from restaurants to foot massages decorate Kowloon islands' streets, while it is the skyscrapers that provide the sparkle after dark on Hong Kong Island. It's also one of the busiest places on earth with a population of 7 million people sharing a very small land mass.

    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
