  • Hong Kong Holiday


    I’m definitely a little late on posting these photos, but a few weeks ago I took a little last-minute solo journey to check out Hong Kong. Being so busy all summer long, I managed to take a week off before the fall (our super busy season) starts up and get out of Shanghai for a bit.

    After securing a fairly cheap round-trip flight and booking a room in Causeway Bay, I was only 48 hours away from one of my best 72-hour vacations to date. Most people who visit Hong Kong for such a short period do so for visa renewals; I was just late on figuring out what to do with my week off. Oops, silly me. My trip was purely for pleasure.

    I wanted to do so much during my visit, but didn’t want to bite off more than I could chew. I had plans of checking out bike shops too but just ran out of time. Next visit, I’m definitely going to go see Brian at RDFX and hopefully find someone/somewhere to lend me a bike for a few days and get a real feel for the city.

    I just got back to Shanghai late last night after a quick 72-hour jaunt to Hong Kong. Seventy two hours isn’t even close to enough time for such a city, but then again, the trip was a last minute decision.

    I spent a lot of time wandering around, eating seafood, shooting photos and even got to skate for a couple hours. Here’s a photo of the city and bay from Victoria Peak. I plan on sorting through the mass of photos from my short trip this evening, so stay tuned for those in the coming days! Who else has been to Hong Kong? Any tips or ‘must-sees’ for my next visit?
