Hong Kong: Why not visit the oldest district?

Hong Kong, in many travelers’ mind, is either a busy commercial city or a paradise of shopping and eating. It’s somehow a fact and you must have great experiences for your holiday here. But, would you like to explore this tiny and beautiful city beyond that? Sham Shui Po, my growing up district, is situated in Western part of Kowloon Peninsula in Hong Kong, might be a “new” sight for travelers who love historical and cultural exploration. It is a place where alternative groups can be reached, heritage sites can be found, and typical food can be tasted.

Hong Kong: New Territories

Hong Kong can be a daunting location to visit, as it presents many logistical challenges, especially for Westerners, as many Asian countries do, but one need not be intimidated by the language and cultural barriers visitors expect to encounter. Hong Kong’s population is predominantly Chinese, as the mainland is a mere bus ride away from Hong Kong’s northern regions. As an Asian who resides in Manila, Hong Kong has always been an easy destination, as it is only three hours away from the Philippines, and is a relatively easy country to get used to. This is especially true for Hong Kong’s primary tourist destinations and transportation hubs, Hong Kong Disneyland and Hong Kong Island.

Everyday Hong Kong: A Stroll through North Point and Quarry Bay

Quarry Bay and North Point, two neighboring stops on the MTR map, are a community in Hong Kong that is best visited during one of the city’s coldest days, when its aged streets are coated with a layer of the grayish dust carried here by the north wind. Though regarded as two separate stations, the distance between the two places is pleasantly walkable and strangely therapeutic. Therefore it is never a surprise why the famed poem ‘midday, Quarry Bay’, written by one of Hong Kong’s most important poets Leung Ping Kwan (1949-2013), is set right in this location. In the poem, the persona states that Quarry Bay is a place where he goes when he wants to escape the boredom at work, and that the vibrant street scene is what cheers him up and ultimately inspires him. If you are a city stroller who takes pleasure in mindlessly wandering on the streets and being inspired by your new discoveries.

Hong Kong: Kowloon Island Instagram worthy itinerary

Hong Kong does not fall short in a variety of Instagram worthy places. I am not referring to the usual Sleeping Beauty Castle shot at Disneyland or the one with the skyline for a backdrop at The Peak. Although, I am not dismissing that these are beautiful images. But we have to go beyond the usual tourist shots.
