Oh so modern
Concrete jungles oppress me. Physically it feels like an assault – the first time I stepped out onto the streets of Hong Kong and came face to face with her collection of sky scraping towers (after having just left the magical dream that was Shanghai) I actually felt like something was pushing against my chest and I couldn’t breathe. I think that if one has a great job and social life in Hong Kong, then it is probably a happening, electric and dynamic place to live. But to visit and spend time for a few days, it’s one of those places I couldn’t fall in love with very rapidly. Still, she was a photogenic city and here are some of her memorable quirks.
Though we were there only for a few days and I felt a tiny bit disorientated from it all, it was clear that there was a lot to see and do in Hong Kong which we didn’t get to cover satisfactorily. Hope you enjoyed this very brief visual soundbite which probably didn’t do the city the justice it deserves – if we were ever to return and stay longer, will try to rectify that!

While I am currently enjoying Prague very much, and will always love Prague ~ nothing compares to Hong Kong in my mind. The chaos of the city and then the tranquility of the islands and countryside, a perfect set of extremes. Viewing your photos I feel as if I am back in the beautiful chaos once again 🙂 Great post.

Haha… thank you so much… but I think I stayed too short to truly appreciate…. I hope I can re-experience it the way you describe it if I ever return…
If you ever do make it back to HK, let me know – hopefully I will be able to make it back more often than I do. Cheers!
Oh definitely, I think if I returned I will make sure I plan my itinerary better so I get to absorb it in a deeper way…
