Hong Kong!

Hong Kong!

When I went to Southeast Asia for the first time in 2012, I flew through Hong Kong. When I went back a year later, I flew through Hong Kong. And when I went to the Philippines two years after that… yup, I flew through Hong Kong. I wasn’t trying – I just really like Cathay Pacific (HK national carrier) and I had found good rates. Each time flying in and out, usually in a little-to-no sleep, post-ambien/booze daze (I’m a health-nut!), the city skyline combined with the landscape was just mesmerizing to me. Over 70% of the city is comprised of mountains and sprawling parks, yet it has 7.4 million people and the highest concentration of skyscrapers in the world. Each time I saw it, my curiosity just grew.

Then over the winter, a couple of the tutorials I was ripping through concentrated on Hong Kong (and Singapore…) and pushed my curiosity over the edge. I was super motivated for a photography-specific trip and since I was heading to that area of the world anyway (or close enough, I guess…), I figured I’d setup some good layovers and explore one of the most dynamic cities in the world.

And explore I did… Over the course of 5 days, I logged nearly 94,000 steps (approx. 47 miles) and I feel like I barely scratched the surface. Before going, I had big plans to get a bunch of hiking in and get to the New Territories, but with some crummy weather, I stuck to just wandering around the dizzying sensory-fest of Central and Kowloon.

This was all only less than three months ago and I already cannot wait to go back…
