    Lovely pictures! I’m from Hong Kong! For now, #41 should be the occupied areas (Admiralty, Mongkok and Causeway Bay). Those are very beautiful sights!

  • My home! Hope you’ve enjoyed it.
    It has changed a lot since I was there, but some traditions remain. I hope you got to enjoy the best of it.

  • This series of posts is one of my favourites on your blog 🙂 Especially when it’s about a city that I completely don’t know! Hong Kong seems to be a very interesting one 🙂

    The old photo is the most interesting. The one thousand Budhas are probably not so many. The patience in the past to make so many Budhas, but patience is not enough for the occurence of a real Budha.

  • Interesting selection – but you’ve missed a few important items: The Star Ferry, Seafood restaurants on Lamma Island, Chinese New Year celebrations, Dim Sum, all the national parks and hikes you can do… there’s so much to see and do in HK, check out my website http://www.bluebalu.com
