🍟🍟HONG KONG = WHERE EVERYONE THINKS I’M FROM BUT THEN THEY CAN HEAR MY FRENCH ACCENT
🌃 HK’s skyline is truly outstanding; even more at night on a 0,277140€ ferry trip (approved by XE Currency) or on a 32,4km/h elevator trip that brings you on top of the ICC – the tallest building.
👣 But… Hong Kong is much more than this picture. It’s the cheapest MacDonald’s and most expensive coffee in the world, it’s the best social-tech start-up accelerator So In So Good, it’s not-house-but-rooftop parties, it’s random police checks because you are eating a donut, it’s foot massages with happy ending, it’s eating mountains of dim sums on Sunday morning, it’s Club 7/11 & M. Wong’s toxic beers, but most of all, it’s hiking a different trail every weekend.
🐍 Please, please & please, come to Hong Kong and realise that 75% of the country is nature & biodiversity; crazy monkeys, giant cockroaches, wild bamboo snakes, everything you can dream of! Of course, everything is reachable within 1-2h and it’s CHEAP (but it’s still more expensive than a BigMac menu). And then you can board a local Ferrari-bus or Ferrari-ferry (say it 8 times) to go back home.
🍔 But on the way home, your friend Alexandre calls you out for dinner and as it’s pick-randomly-from-the-Chinese-menu Sunday, you end up with fried fish bones. But (fortunately?) there is a MacDonald’s nearby (there is always), so you order a Hokkaido Salmon burger not to starve – and then realise it’s already the 5th time this week!
😘😘 Bye bye Hong Kong & see you next year ❤ (because I forgot to spend my HKD)
