Wow, what a cool city. I still can't believe this is actually China...sure doesn't seem like it though:

-Different politics
-Different language
-Drive on opposite side of the road
-Different plug-ins
-Different money
-Need to go through customs to get your passport stamped

I really felt like I was in another country. Even the same Chinese characters make different sounds in Hong Kong, so just when i think I am starting to be able to read some Chinese, they go and change it on me!

We only had 2 days here, I prolly would have liked at least 4. The Hong Kong territory actually encompasses over 1000 square kilometers, of which only 15% is urban. This leaves plenty of room for national parks, jungle filled hillsides, and lots of monkeys. The city is LOADED with skyscrapers, and the views of the skyline from Victoria harbour and Victoria peak are the coolest I have ever seen. I really liked this city!
