Keeping up with my tradition of going back to China once a year, I only had 4-5 days to spend with family this time so we made the most out of it. Only having been to Hong Kong once when I was too young to remember, I took 2 days for this beautiful piece of land since the island is relatively small and can be quickly traversed. Somewhat disappointed that the food tastes the same as in the US, I think I will enjoy Dim Sum in the US instead of flying across the ocean to get it the next time. Usually, food from the original place should taste better. Originally, Hong Kong was a British colony for the longest time. Recently in the last century, it was finally given back to China but made an autonomous region for free trade and democracy. Many Jackie Chan movies that I grew up watching were filmed here. You can locate the famous landmarks rather easily since they are very much visible from the harbor on either the mainland or the island side. For tourists, one can ride either the ferry or the subway to cross over. I recommend the ferry which takes longer, at 20-30 minutes, but the view is gorgeous whether it be the morning or the evening. Other famous landmarks include the Symphony of Lights, a set of rainbow color lights best viewed from the mainland side at night, the last alley for street food, and the longest series of escalators in the world. One unique aspect when walking around is that unlike most other cities, on the island side there are a whole lot of skywalks and walkways above ground level. More commuters utilize these than the sidewalks underneath.
