"Hong Kong - My Home away from home" Hong Kong by vincentf

Hong Kong Travel Guide: 8,656 reviews and 21,186 photos

Welcome to Hong Kong! This is a shot taken from my apartment just after a rainstorm. Lucky for me, I caught a rainbow right on Victoria Harbour! I have lived here since late-1995. So, I have more or less gotten used to what a hectic life Hong Kong can give you! It is also a good base for trips around Asia too. Hong Kong is a land of contrasts, from urban sprawl to remote wilderness all tucked into an area of Metropolitan Toronto.

This is a shot of Plover Cove Reservoir in the New Territories. There is no sign of human activity!

Here's another natural scenery of Hong Kong. This is Big Wave Bay located near Shek O. The beach is wide and quite clean in comparison with Repulse Bay.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Shopper's Paradise
  • Cons:Be weary of crowded streets and bad air pollution
  • In a nutshell:Experience "East meets West" Culture

    I have a suggestion - Another great dessert place to recommend to others is "B-Jai" Leung Fun located in Yuen Long, adjacent to a large storm sewer.
