After all these years in Hong Kong there are still areas and university campuses I have not been to. One such example is the Education University of Kong campus, up near Tai Po Market. It is only recently that I made my way up to the northern part of Hong Kong to finally visit that […]

1 Dec, 2018 in HK Places

After so long of living in Hong Kong there are very few places I have not yet visited. Strangely enough, western HK island, between Kennedy Town and Pok Fu Lam, was one of them, so I never got to see the new large business area with the big complex of residential buildings and shopping malls […]

30 Nov, 2018 in HK Hikes

I’ve visited Hong Kong’s Lamma Island several times in the years I’ve lived in Hong Kong (example1, example2), but the last time was over 7 years ago, and it was mainly on the same path crossing the island from north to south-east (Yung Shue Wan Ferry Pier). This year, I went back to revisit, and […]

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┬áPlover 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
