Explore Hong Kong on Foot – A Guest Post
They say, travel makes you richer by experiences and I couldn’t agree more.
With my recent visit to Hong Kong, I have many stories to share. There are experiences etched in memory and I don’t want them to fade away with time.
When you visit a new place not as a tourist but as someone who has more time to spend than a tourist would, you get to see things that take you closer to the heart of the city. This is what happened to me in Hong Kong. I had an opportunity to visit Hong Kong twice over a period of four months and each time, I stayed around 3 weeks. While over weekends, we roamed around checking off famous attractions of our list, on other days we sat in trams and local buses to reach farther corners.
We walked from one locality to other and saw how even a city transforms within. The branded glittery showrooms transforming into small mom and pop stores and the multi-storey apartments into small studio rooms. From ornamental trees to the wild ones that grow on a wall and keep it strong. From private offices to government buildings. From office goers to the non-English speaking locals. Everything changed.
Well, that set me off to write about exploring this city on foot. When in Hong Kong, just walk was my idea of something different to do when visiting Asia’s world city.
