HONG KONG - Part I of IV


Hong Kong doesn't need much of an explanation, especially on forums where skyscrapers are the topic of the day (everyday), but I'll do a quick intro of my Asian-trip.

Unlike Beijing, Hong Kong is a lively place that goes about its life without snearing and contempt; a template for the 21st century Asian city.

Unfortunately I did run into a spot of bother when I visited Yuen Long (New Territories on the West Line) when I accidently wiped my memory card. You might think what a dolt, but it happens! Unfortunately the loss of quite a few pictures meant that I lost all of my Yuen Long pics which give a greater insight into Hong Kong.

I took well over a thousand pictures and don't tend to group the pictures in moods/styles/geographies, so what you see is pretty much a chronological order of my entire trip. You might actually wonder why pics 1-6 look odd, but these were on a previous memory card, so all arrival pics and random walk around pics have been lost. Picture 7 represents the new story of Hong Kong.

Part I - Arrival, Causeway Bay Ramble, the Memory Wipe, and Christmas

Part II - Aberdeen, Central, Ngong Ping 360 (note: most tacky experience in HK - avoid), Wanko

Part III - Randoms, Repulse Bay, Stanley, Happy Valley, Intercontinental desserts

Part IV - Happy Valley, Korean, New Years, Drive to Shenzhen (<shiver>), Bus Jam, Exclusive Drinks, Airport Express
