Feel the vibe for it is alive in HK

Feel the vibe for it is alive in HK

Hongkong for me means vacation and adventure! There used to be a time when I stayed in the crown colony for two weeks(!) But, I stopped going there after the turn-over because I thought that it would never be the same again. They will be fond memories for me.

I had the chance to go back there recently and its time to make new adventures in this city. Wow! The sights were amazing. Aside from the romantic way of traversing the islands by way of Star ferry, everything was within reach because of the MTR.The lights and sound presentation along the harbor every night at around 8 in the evening is something to watch. The incence rings in their remaining temples can be mesmerizing. There was one temple where I had to take a ride from one mountain to another just to reach that place. The shopping and nightlife of course are top of the list but a lesson can be learned with overdoing it. Rode a bus that my friend calls the “red devil” and had the ride of my life. Had some street food in their side street and main ones too. The tall buildings standing next to each other are breathtaking. Aside from these buildings, there are heritage buildings scattered across the islands. The vibe is still definitely alive. So, come with me as Ill show you why!

I'm a civil servant who has the spirit of adventure in my blood. The last time I did some writing for my travels abroad was when I was in my teens. My class would make some newsblogs which became notorious and funny for most of the faculty of my school. Ive always like adventure and see what it can teach me at the end of the day. So,tripping here I go!
