Hong Kong has always been my second home. Well, it was really my first home. Born in Hong Kong, my family immigrated to Toronto when I was 4 years old but the sights, sounds and love for Hong Kong remained with me. After my first year in university and savings from my first part time job, the first place I visited was Hong Kong. And shortly after my career began, Hong Kong was the first city I vacationed. Once again, I recently returned from a 2 week trip in Macau, Taiwan and Hong Kong, the city skyline never fails to take my breath away.

I’ve been a pretty dedicated @CathayPacific flyer and have had positive experiences – it’s important for a 16 hour flight! Their meals are good for what it is and I’ve scored pretty good deals on most of my flights. This year they had a sale on Valentines day YYZ > HKG for only $1200 which is a similar deal from my flight 2 years ago. From HKG > TPE the ticket was around $230. The seats were comfortable for my size and had a great selection of shows and movies to occupy my time for 16 hours.

It was unfortunate that it rained every single day that I was in Hong Kong but we still managed to do what we wanted. The weather in May is usually quite rainy (averages 13 rainy days) and around 25C (77F). Humidity is also really high so you’ve been warned!

As a tourist/past local, and with some help from @HongKongTourism , here are the top places I would recommend:

While others refer to Paris as the City of Lights and New York as the City that Never Sleeps, Hong Kong, to me is all encompassing.  Hong Kong is a place that has me going back for more.

Review of www.cottagerental.com

For many people, booking/purchasing online with your credit card can be nerve-wracking.

This summer I wanted to take the opportunity to spend some time with my family away from the city. While my parents wanted to go to Cuba, I wanted to opt for somewhere…

Facing Racism while Traveling

The older I get, the more aware I am of my surroundings.

I reside in the Greater Toronto Area which means I never feel like the minority – I live inside the welcoming Canadian bubble where (majority of the time) we embrace different cultures. Growing up,…

Just a bit.

A love for the open road, and anything that comes along with it.

Must love roadtrips and coffee.

Value experience over materials.
