Hong Kong is possibly one of the most beautiful places I’ve been too and trust me I’ve been to many places. I’m sure for a lot of people if you’ve never been there it just seems like another one of those cities like New York or London. While I can’t speak for New York, I think Hong Kong is very different. I’ve been there before but at the age of 5 you don’t really take much in and realise the beauty of a city or country. There wasn’t one place that I went in Hong Kong that didn’t impress me. The architecture in a place so different from my home is astounding and it really is a gorgeous place.
It was beautiful but the one downside was the two flights, one being twelve hours. Although flying as you guys may know is one of those things I prefer not to do I’ve come to the realisation that there is no point being scared as I take roughly six flights a year. I also think that is such a privilege to be able to travel as much as I do and I don’t want to not be enjoying something when some people would kill to do it as much as I can.
The second I stepped out of the airport I was impressed and the whole taxi ride to my aunt and uncles home I was looking out the window up at all the high rise buildings. One of my favourite things about Hong Kong was that you could go from being in an area with tall high rise buildings and then in an area surrounded by trees and forest.
I our five day stay we did a lot of eating. Where I live we don’t have a lot of asian restaurants which for me, a lover of Korean food, this is very disappointing. Where I live we have like a couple Thai and Chinese take out restaurants but TBH they aren’t amazing. We went to Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Malaysian and korean restaurants in Hong Kong. They were all amazing as my aunt and uncle have been living there for about ten years so they know where to go and what to eat.
If you ever get the chance to go, go there is something there for everybody and it is somewhere that I could see myself living. I don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a trip as much as I enjoyed this one. I hope to go again one day.
