I am a traveller and I have visited a lot of cities in the world. However, I donít have the right words to express how it felt like to be in Hong Kong. I didnít know that one can fall in love with a place until I got there and nothing can perfectly capture the magic in this city.
I will always love this city, time and again!
How I fell in love with Hong Kong
I did not expect leaving this city to be as difficult. It felt like breaking up with a man that I had been in love with since childhood and the yearning to go back to him kept weighing me down. It is impossible to imagine that a place can be so amazing.
The food culture
I loved the food in Hong Kong
. They mostly prepare Chinese or Cantonese meals and there is nothing better in this world. You might not understand what I am talking about until you taste it.
I got the chance to dine in several restaurants and sometimes, from pack and carry joints. At some point, I even found myself wishing I was born there.
I have shopped in many places but nothing compares to Hong Kong. I am the type that shops because I have to but this time, I really had fun. You can find anything there! I mostly enjoyed the street shopping. The Ladies Market
that is known as Tung Choi Street is most interesting.
I found the prices unbelievably friendly and everyone was so kind. It felt like home.
Lantau Island and Big Buddha
I decided to go for a hike through Lantau Island. If you love hiking, you should really try this place! It is actually the largest island in Hong Kong and I took some really amazing photos that I intend to keep.
Guess who I found on this island? The Big Buddha! I felt like I was in a dream. All my life, I only saw Buddha in photos and this time it was real. How could I not love this place?
The energy and vibe
I fell in love with Hong Kong because it is a crowded city full of amazing people. Itís like they are always in a festive mood. I found affection everywhere and of all the places that I have been to, this is the only one that felt like home.
I love the way the systems in Hong Kong are efficient. I used public transport and despite the fact that there are so many people, it was always available. The escalator system was also good!
The fashion parade
Like any other girl, I love fashion. However, I felt like I was underdressed because everyone else there looked stunning regardless of their occupations. I once saw a teenage girl in stilettos that I cannot even wear in my own house.
The Sala Raj Thai massage
One day I decided to get a Sala Raj Thai massage. It is a traditional hong kong massage
that I would easily die for! I felt like a totally different person afterwards.
Why havenít you visited Hong Kong already?
