It’s typhoon season so the weather is characterized by lots of rain and high winds. Sights, sounds, smells of Hong Kong Island are impeccable! There is no such ting as a bad meal, and so much to see. I am staying on Hollywood Road located in SOHO (south of Hollywood) so there are lots of things that mimic American culture here. All of the ads are familiar, Gucci, Prada, Rolex, H&M, Gap and of course McDonalds; they didn’t miss a capitalist beat. From Victoria’s Peak (highest point in Hong Kong located above 428 meters above sea level) you can see just how majestic the skyline truly is.
Tucked into the bustling city are antiques, Chineras guarding doors, Buddah, dragons, and other traditional relics remaining from Pre-colonialism. It’s is exciting to see beautiful artifacts made of jade, stone, and other traditional materials. What a rich culture hidden within this city of lights!
