Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a total one off as a city. It has all the shiny new sky scrapers that mark out it's distinct skyline, but it also has all the hustle and bustle of chinese street markets down at ground level. In comparison to the West with it's half empty shopping malls, their streets are full of bustling shops and stalls, all doing business and catering to the many nationalities that inhabit and visit Hong Kong. The city has it's shopping plaza's too with names like Prada and DKNY, but to experience the real local urban Chinese lifestyle you have to go to Yau Ma Tei or Mongkok on Kowloon Island.

Here are a few photo's from the city :
