Hong Kong Japanese Pop Culture Stores Re-Visited

It's been 8 years since I last wrote about where to find import Japanese pop culture/otaku Anime goods in Hong Kong so I thought I'd write about it again. Not much has really changed since that post in 2009 but there are a few new shops I discovered that I didn't mention back then. Import Japanese goods are pretty much everywhere in Hong...


Hiking in Hong Kong - Trail Section 8 Dragon's Back

Hong Trail Section 8 AKA "Dragon's Back" is referred to as the "best hiking trail in Asia" by a lot of English travel guides so I had to see for myself after tackling Wilson's Trail Section 2. It's longer at 8.5km instead of 6.6km but supposedly easier. I chose to go during the weekdays when it's less busy and it was 24C - Pretty much a...


A Tour Around Hong Kong Wetland Park

I decided to go to the outskirts of Hong Kong, Tin Shui Wai to visit the Wetland Park because it looked like an interesting place to visit. To get to the park you can take the metro to Kowloon Tong Station before switching to the overground trains to Hung Hom. Then you can take the tram and if you get off at Tin Sau Station instead of Wetland...


Hiking in Hong Kong - Wilson's Trail Section 2

I go to Hong Kong quite often so I've pretty much been to all the tourist traps. Since I usually hang out in the shopping centres (or plazas as they call them locally) I decided to try and find something different to do this time. Hiking. Originally I wanted to cover the more notable "Dragon's Back" first because it was supposedly easier...


Makoto Shinkai To Appear at Comic World in Hong Kong ::

It appears Makoto Shinkai has been busy traveling around the world as his latest movie, "Children Who Chase Voices from Deep Below" is being screened in various countries including Mainland China, Korea and now this month in Hong Kong. Comix Wave is really pushing his works to a wider international scale. Don't miss this opportunity...


Acid Throwing Suspect in Hong Kong Held ::

Looks like they may have finally caught the man who has been throwing acid into the streets of Mong Kok from high buildings, one of the most busiest places in Hong Kong. I just happened to be there the day before it happened once. Hope this is the real culprit and there are no more such attacks....


Back in the UK

Got back to Glasgow seven in the morning. First thing you'll probably notice is all the greenery here as you're landing compared to in HK. Then once you get off the plane, you feel the cold biting in. I'd rather be in the heat than in the cold which appears to be what the majority of people on Everybody Votes seem to prefer too. Time to catch up...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part VII, The Rural Areas

Well well, time flies. It's almost time for me to return to the UK so this will probably be my last post before then. If the urban surroundings of the "concrete forest" (as Hong Kong people refer to the high rise building surroundings) or tourist attractions don't tempt you, you could always visit the rural areas where the shops are a...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part VI, Tsim Sha Tsui

Tsim Sha Tsui's a place that I always visit at least once whenever I'm in Hong Kong on business. Probably because of the view there. I carried the same mini tripod I used at The Peak so the pictures are fairly sharp but it's hard capturing the shapes of all the bright neon light signs. Making my way to the harbour. Lots of roadblocks set up so...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part V, Victoria Peak

This is Central where another of the tourist "traps" are, Victoria Peak. I've visited the place before as a kid but didn't really appreciate the view at the time so having taken an interest in photography, I decided to go again for the view and some night shots. Dropped by Cafe de Coral for some chicken beef burger sausage rice . It's not...
