Born and raised in Vancouver, I grew up speaking Cantonese and conveniently picked up Mandarin along the way. Having studied in both Hong Kong and Canada definitely helped to put faces and perspective to the stories of what you read and learn.
For me the best way to see a city is through our 5 senses, or for those who are talented enough your 6th.
Start by seeing the city in a way that makes it relatable to you, whether it’s in the eyes of a local, or a transient visitor. Then slowly allow yourself to tune in to the audio symphony of conversations and buzz-iness in a city that is best represented in its absence in silence. Now take a deep break and along with it, a whiff of what this city has to offer, from the dried seafood on Des Veoux Road and stinky tofu in Prince Edward, to the sea breeze of Repulse Bay beach and the citrus aromas of the Yau Ma Tei fruit market. Brush shoulders with strangers in this city of 7.8 million while hurrying your feet through bespoke alleys, nature trails or stepping on and off the city’s mini buses, double deckers, bikes, ferries, MTR trains, trams and taxis. And of course, sandwiching all of the above with bite sized meals, street snacks, local delicacies in building up your own taste of HK.
So allow me to take you around Hong Kong and hopefully give you a reason to visit this old friend, time and time again…
