There’s not many cities that evoke more of a sense of exoticism and excitement than Hong Kong. With its link to the British Commonwealth and China, it is such a mixed bag of traditions, food, and people. You can’t help but be enamored with its uniqueness.
I’ve written about Hong Kong before, such as the time a taxi tried to take me out and the fun we had trying to buy some good luck at the wishing tree, but I haven’t told you about the hustle, bustle, and pure fun that is Hong Kong.
From museums to night markets, great restaurants, and friendly people you just can’t go wrong in this city. What we enjoyed the most was just getting around the city. Yes, we rode the rides in Hong Kong Disney, but the tram, the gondola to Victoria Peak, the Star ferry, and the buses….these were the highlights.
It was so fun to first try and figure out how to get someplace, then actually try to do it. I don’t know why. One of our most fun little jaunts was on a double-decker bus careening through the narrow, winding streets with a TV blaring out old Bugs Bunny cartoons. Seriously, it should have been one of the park rides, it was that scary-fun!
