We're getting on a plane for Japan tonight, so I thought I'd throw up a few more shots of HK before we leave. We loved wandering around the artsy neighbourhoods of Soho and Central (pictured in the last post) and checking out the bird and flower market. I was surprised to feel right at home in the Stanley market area. It felt just like North America. I know most people wouldn't desire that during a trip to Asia, however, it's been six months since the last time we were home, so it just felt so good! Give me a boardwalk and a patio and I'm a happy woman.

Check out all 3000 of our Hong Kong photos in four minutes over here! (Nicely done, Mike!)

  12. I moved to Hong Kong when I was 23 and lived there for two years (I'm 32 now), and went back to party with my friends there for my 30th birthday. I absolutely LOVE that city - it's got an energy like nowhere else. And I lived about a 10 minute walk north of the flower market, in Tai Kok Tsui :)
