Just when I think I’ve visited everything that there is to visit in Hong Kong I accidentally come across a new spot that reminds me how wonderful Hong Kong is. From an unexplored nearly deserte ferry pier next the Chinese University of Hong Kong departs a one hour ferry take goes through beautiful Plover Cove area, […]

Even after so many years roaming around Hong Kong, I still somehow manage to find new spots to cover. Repulse Bay is a beach on the southern side of Hong Kong Island, with big shopping malls and hotels nearby, and a large expat community. To me, not really a sun boy, it was something I […]

Just when I think I’ve seen everything in Hong Kong, especially museum wise, I run into a new surprise. Away from the tourist beaten track in Tseun Wan, just near the MTR is the Sam Tung Uk Museum, a 200 years old walled village turned museum. Will give you a feel for the Hong Kong history, […]

In 2014 I left Hong Kong after living there for a few years. Although Hong Kong and the region are generally in very fast development, the changes are not always noticeable to tourists – the last time I visited there were new MTR lines popping up (e.g., there are now one taking you to Ocean […]

In my last visit to Hong Kong after over two years of being away I stayed in the Shau Kei Wan very local area. That’s where I discovered the Sai Wan Ho ferry pier where you can take ferries to places I’ve never been or rarely visited in Hong Kong before. One such place was Tung Lung […]

On and off I spent over 5 years living in Hong Kong. It’s where I lived the longest out of my home country, and it therefore has a special place in my heart. This summer was the first time I went back to visit since I left in 2014, and – as expected – it […]

Hong Kong University of Science and Technology HK Visions (15)

I recently revisited my old home of Hong Kong and stayed over as a guest on the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) campus at the new hotel next the new buildings for the business school and the Institute of Advanced Studies (Conference Lodge). Although I know this campus and the Sai Kung […]

Tung Lung Chau Island Hong Kong (21)

Hong Kong is my second home. I’ve live in Hong Kong for many years and I’ve had plenty of time to explore most of the places in Hong Kong. Even though Hong Kong is one of the most diverse exciting cities in the world, I did a pretty good job of covering almost everything, and […]

Po Toi Island -  Hong Kong (40)

After 5 years in Hong Kong I thought that I pretty much covered it all. Did most of the hiking trails, been to most of the local islands, did countless boat trips in all directions. What else could there possibly be that would surprise me? But, as it usually is with Hong Kong, there are […]

Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail  Fanling Hong Kong (2)

When people think of the history of Hong Kong they usually don’t think much further than mid 19th century, but the heritage trails in Hong Kong will take you back in time as far as the 13th century. The first heritage trail I visited was the Ping Shan Heritage trail in the western part of […]
