We flew into Hong Kong last night after a wonderful holiday in Greece and another wedding celebration in The Netherlands. We arrived in the afternoon and the drive home plus walking around today has made me realise that Hong Kong IS an attractive city.
The drive from the airport to the city I think is one of the best I've seen. I have travelled a fair bit and can't remember when I saw such interesting views in a 30min drive - city scape, mountains, interesting bridges, harbour views, islands, cute boats on the water all in.
And then today the mountains in Kowloon were peaking just enough through the buildings to make me think of Cape Town. And wow the sunset. The sunset in Oia, Santorini in Greece is meant to be the best but I don't quite agree. The Greek sunset is great, but Hong Kong provides a mood and setting that evokes something more in my opinion.
