Since my first time to Hong Kong during grad school back in 2009, I’ve referred to Hong Kong as my favorite city in the World. After a third trip back, I still think it’s my favorite city anywhere. There’s just so much that this metropolis has to offer. From the markets to the vistas to the beaches to the food to the architecture, Hong Kong really has it all, and is a true urban metropolis.
Every time I go back to Hong Kong, I continue to be mesmerized by its iconic skyline that towers over Victoria Harbor. I’m still enthralled with the absurd variety and quality of foods. Hong Kong is basically Manhattan — with a better skyline. But on a beautiful harbor. With mountainous terrain. And great beaches on the other side of the mountains… basically, I think this city has it all.
