Pearl of the Orient – Hong Kong Photoblog

Hong Kong is a city of infinite possibilities, it is a place that I hold very dear to my heart not only because it is where my family is from, but also because it is an incredible display of culture and nightlife. I remember when I first set foot in Hong Kong International Airport, after it had been renovated, and saw the lines of people moving efficiently towards waiting taxis and metro terminals. There is something for everyone Hong Kong whether you are looking for bar hopping or just want to relax on the beach.

Residing off the coast of China, Hong Kong established the “One Country, Two Systems” arrangement which eased the transition from British to Chinese rule. The food, people, and culture of Hong Kong are shaped by the city’s landscape, check out the photos below for a look at this bustling city.
