HONG KONG – Asia’s World City

My first encounter with Hong Kong was back in the early part of 2000. It’s the most convenient out of the country experience for me coming from Cebu as there are several flights that flies direct to HK from Cebu for less than 3 hours flying time. It seemed like a totally different country from ours and it’s because it is.  What I mean is that the culture is quite different; there is something quite old and modern to it and there are varied seasons (humid summer, wet monsoons and cold winter).  It’s a vibrant City, it’s as if the City never sleeps at all.
