Lion Rock: another view of Hong Kong from above Hong Kong The fact that I love Hong Kong will not be news for long-time readers of this blog. Every time I try to find something new for myself here, and so far there have been no problems with this. During a recent two-day visit, I climbed onto Lion Rock. This is a great climb, which for some reason I did not know about before (otherwise I would have gone a long time ago!)
Moving around Hong Kong Hong Kong I was surprised to learn that most of my readers prefer the wicked Los Angeles to Hong Kong! I’m probably clumsily describing Hong Kong charms, and the Hollywood PR machine is too good in business. Well, I'll try again.
Incredible Hong Kong. What to see in three days? Hong Kong Usually in Hong Kong I am a savage, but this time I ended up in a group that was organized in the most interesting tourist places.

But there is another Hong Kong, in which (almost) no skyscrapers. In some places it even a quiet, green, and a little deserted. Today I'll tell you about it.

Hong Kong in 3D: stairs, terraces, tram Hong Kong

Having arrived in Hong Kong early in the morning, I walked along its slopes, and then remembered that I was in it so attractive. Let me tell you, and for that I am so in love with this city. In short, due to its three-dimensionality.

483 meters above the sky: the tallest hotel in the world Hong Kong

Over the choice of places where to throw the dice in Hong Kong, I thought no longer than 10 seconds. Here and only here has the highest hotel in the world - The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, and other alternative means for crazy fan of skyscrapers is not there. Stay in this hotel for me - as a visit to the highest waterfall or climb the highest mountain.
