Oh boy, Hong Kong—have you been? It’s been one of my favorite travel destinations ever since I packed my bags, moved to China to work as an ESL teacher, and began my trek across East Asia. I first fell in love with Hong Kong during my initial 4-day visit back in 2012, and since then I’ve returned nearly several more times on solo trips and with family and friends. Here’s my list of 15+ reasons why I love Hong Kong and why you need to visit ASAP.
One of the more popular and inexpensive places to stay in Hong Kong is at the Chungking Mansions, which is a building jam packed with independently operated hotels, hostels, guesthouses, shops, and boutiques. You’ll find boatloads of locals and international tourists staying in Chungking Mansions, as well as a large amount of Hong Kong’s ethnic minorities, including Africans, Indians, and Middle Easterners, presiding in the building.
Hong Kong’s Chinese New Year Parade is definitely a must-see event if you’re in the region to celebrate the Lunar New Year. I actually stumbled upon the parade back in January 2014 after spending a few days in Taipei, Taiwan, and I couldn’t believe what I saw.
