These buildings are what I think of when I think of Hong Kong…a little ramshackle, but full of character.

HK is one of my favorite cities in the world because of the contrast between the old & worn and the slick new city life…I love both sides equally!

I have a few books that are worth buying on the topic of buildings in HK:

City of Darkness: Life in Kowloon City

Phantom Shanghai

If you know of other books along these lines, I would be happy if you post suggestions in the comments below.

This is an interesting place…it started out as a park where people brought their birds so they could sing together & their owners could sit and chat or play cards.  While these bird owners still come to do this, unfortunately it has become a bit of a tourist trap.  I guess these places can’t be a well-kept secret forever.  But it is great to come here on a warm Sunday afternoon & listen to the birds; sounds beautiful!

What I love about Hong Kongers is their individual style…they follow the trends, but also put their own unique spin on it.

Many outfits I would never wear, but I appreciate the thought they put into their look.
