You could be enjoying the rains, tapping your feet gently to the music of a couplet of poets, relishing the beauty of the local cuisine, witnessing the spectacle of the symphony of lights at the Victoria Harbour when the feeling of not having to live here forever would start gnawing at you.
Here, I was welcomed by a rain shower followed by a perfect rainbow which I think was the best possible start to my trip.
(Also, it’s quite intriguing that wherever I have been to till now in my life, it has rained at least once.)
The city has something or the other in stock for people with different interests. Po Lin monastery, Wong Tai Sin Temple, Sam Tung Uk Museum are some of the places where people get a chance to delve into the history of the place and gain more about the culture and tradition.
The beautiful fusion of past, tomorrow and fantasy can be seen in Ocean Park and Disneyland which are among the top theme parks in the world.
Hong Kong is also home to various shopping hubs and malls comprising of elite brands as well as little china towns.The people of Hong Kong are very well updated with the newest fashion and the latest trends.

Ahh, I can shift here right now.
