In a Nutshell

I have been going to Hong Kong on and off for the past 18 years. I'm quite lucky in that I have relatives living here.

To tell you the truth I actually hated Hong Kong when I first came off way back in 1994, but since then I have grown to love this great big lovely city :)

Old and new

Where in the world can you see the old and new transforming before your every eyes.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:the public transport
  • Cons:The mossies, the crowds and noise/traffic pollution
  • In a nutshell:It is a city full of life and soul!

    Some really great tips here, many thanks. Are most of them still accurate? I mean you did write them a few years ago.

    Your page is very useful because you have included the MTR station and the direction as well! I'm going to HK for the first time at the end of this month and I'm very excited. Thanks!
