Hey remember that time I went to China? Cesar and I went on a whirlwind, super exhausting but fantastic exploration through Hong Kong, Beijing and Macau. We allotted approximately 3 days for each city and were literally running the entire time.
If you can’t tell from these pictures already, Hong Kong consisted of a lot of looking and sensational views. From the Peak (pictured at the top) to Victoria Harbor (above), Hong Kong is just beautiful, and somewhere I could absolutely see myself living.
The Chinese culture is still so rich in HK even though it is a very international city. We walked through the Temple Street night market in Kowloon and loved exploring all of the open air eateries and little shops.
This is downtown Kowloon (the side of the harbor we stayed on), and we were pretty taken aback that it looks somewhat like New York. Very bustling, lots of cabs and people. The Hong Kong side of Victoria Harbor is even more so like Manhattan.
Perhaps the most exciting thing for me was the emphasis on shopping in the city. There was literally every brand you could ever want and so many malls I couldn’t even keep track. I kid you not I saw nearly 10 Chanel stores while there and could barely contain myself. The picture above is of some bags displayed at Maud Frizon, a brand I learned about from Tiffany Ish!
Oh, and Cesar casually walking through a fountain. Cuz guys, it was HOT.
