Hong Kong Sojourn

The famous view of Hong Kong with its buildings

I was invited by AirPhil Express to join them in their maiden flight from Cebu to Hong Kong and stayed for almost a week to explore, photograph and get to know more about this beautiful place south of the Chinese mainland. It’s now my second time to be in Hong Kong, this time, longer and I got to explore most of the touristic places including the newest, Sky100, walked Nathan Road end-to-end, rode a tram, the Star Ferry as well as ‘trekked’ the mid-level escalators up and down.

I also got to sample the great variety of food, enjoy different kinds of architecture as well as meet Filipinos during my stay with two other bloggers, Edcel of and Irene of As much as possible, I will be blogging about different aspects of Hong Kong but concentrated mostly within Kowloon, Central, Mongkok and a few on Tsuen Wan in the New Territories.

Until my next travel to this place.

This trip was made possible by AirPhil Express. Like their Facebook page to keep updated of promos and other updates.
