Hong Kong

Day 58 – 61 (15. – 18.3.2013) Hong Kong

Hong Kong  – the last stop of my epic trip – and also the last post for this trip.
Again I was able to meet some friends from the MBA – was good to catch up after such a long time :)Hong Kong – China with a british attitude. On every corner you are reminded that Hong Kong was a British till in the not so far past. For example I’ve seen only in UK & HK people queuing for the bus in neat lines.The whole four days I spent there it was very misty or rather the smog which made it look like it was misty. There is an unbelievable number of buses & taxis in the streets.

Everyone knows double-decker buses (also from London 😉 but who has seen double-decker trams?
On Hong Kong Central everything is easy to reach by foot. There are seemingly endless walkways – but not alongside the roads but several meters up in the air which makes convenient crossing without continuous ups & downs of flight of stairs. Also there is a unique thing called the mid-level escalators, an set of outdoor escalators helping people to move through the city center.Thanks for reading this time – I’ll keep you updated on my next journey to be documented in my blog!
