#TravelCrush: Hong Kong

Being a true Type A personality, I’m already planning my 30th birthday trip even though it’s a year and a half away.

Thailand has been on my travel list for as long as I can remember, so I’m excited to finally be planning a trip to a country I’ve heard such incredible things about. As part of my trip to Thailand, I’m flying in and out of Hong Kong.

Not only is making a connection there more affordable, but Hong Kong is a vibrant diverse city that’s worthy of a visit in its own right.

With an impressive skyline and captivating culture, friends of mine who have traveled to Hong Kong rave about how many things there are to see and do there. Crowded, fast-paced and a mix of high-rise meets jungle, the city is a beautiful chaotic blend.

Passion Passport says it best-

Underneath the glass and steel of Hong Kong’s commercial persona is a dynamic cultural landscape where its Chinese roots, colonial connections, and the contributions of its home-grown talent become intertwined. Here, you’re just as likely to find yourself applauding at Asia’s top film festival as joining in dawn taichi or reading the couplets of a local poet to the drumbeat of a dragon boat.
