I’m not sure if it’s because I don’t drink, or because I stayed in the completely wrong area of Hong Kong, but my week here was not as fun as I had expected and super expensive. A lot of my friends completely love Hong Kong, I’ve friends that were born and raised here then moved to the UK, friends from the UK that moved out to Hong Kong to live for a few years and then I know other nomads that love travelling here. So there must be something about it that’s awesome. I was hoping for a super fun, sexy, James Bond Bottoms Up club vibe, but what I found was basically a super corporate, concrete city reminiscent of 80s London with the price tag twice that of 21st Century London!
One (two really..) of the awesome things about Hong Kong is the parks, it’s super cool to be walking around a beautiful woodland scene to see massive skyscrapers poking out from behind the trees, a hybrid of metropolitan city life and artificial countryside. There’s also lots of interesting things to find, like the teapot museum and a massive aviary that was definitely modelled after Jurassic Park 3’s Pterodactyl pen!
