Hong Kong

Back in Asia after 5 years, in Hong Kong now under Chinese law. Hong Kong still has a very british flavor with coffee houses everywhere, cars driving on the left side of the road and metro that definitely looks like the London one.

From Budapest covered with snow, Hong Kong with 20C was a great change... The weather was gray... but I would not complain

Taking the very modern airport express was quite a change from Budapest metro...
The hotel was on the border of Central district, the core of Hong Kong business and finance industry. Huge office buildings everywhere

Concrete is everywhere and you can feel the density of the place. Every square centimeter is used and space is clearly an issue. Central is squized between the sea and the mountain, built on a small strech of land.
