From high on Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island, there is a spectacular view of the city below. The nearby skyscrapers seem surprisingly striking for this cloudy April day. On the other side of the harbor, shapes on the Kowloon peninsula fade in and out of the midday mists. The faint outline of the mountains looms in the distance.
Hong Kong Harbor can feel bustling, yet peaceful, depending on where you are. Generally I’m not a big fan of huge cities, but I like Hong Kong. It really is a place that has something for everyone. The city itself has everything you can imagine, and when you want to get away, town and rural areas are only a short metro, ferry, or bus ride away. It is also ridiculously easy to navigate. Hong Kong gets points for having one of the best airports and metro systems I’ve ever seen. My first time ever traveling alone was in Hong Kong, and it didn’t take me long to get comfortable exploring the city.
