Adventures in China & Hong Kong, Part 2


blue girl lager
Blue Girl Lager is the beer of choice in Hong Kong amongst the locals. It tastes pretty good with a deep flavor, but still manages to be refreshing. From what I can remember, it's pretty strong stuff. After a bottle, I was feeling pretty good.

If you're in HK, you also have to visit the International Commerce Center building. There's an observation level on the 100th floor called Sky 100. At 1607 feet, it's currently the 4th tallest building in the world. Way up there it's pretty much a 360° view of HK.

This view gives you an idea of the density of high rise buildings. You can imagine how many people live in HK. This is only a small segment of the 360° view!

This is another view from Sky 100 of some baller apartment buildings. The series of courtyards in the center contain tennis courts, soccer courts, a jogging path, and other recreational facilities. No doubt it's expensive to live there.

There are plenty of container ships pulling in and out of the HK harbor at all hours of the day. The docks in HK are MASSIVE.

And that was pretty much it for my May 2011 trip to Hong Kong. I got to meet some cool people, I had a great time, and saw a lot of cool things. HK should definitely be on your list of places to visit while you're young because there are so many things to do. I was fortunate enough to have Timmy show me around, but there are plenty of guidebooks and websites to guide you to the attractions. Check out HK's official Discover Hong Kong website for more details on what to do.

I'd like to thank Timmy, Paco, Ivan, Calvin, Vincent, and Sonny. See you guys again soon!
