What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Hong Kong is so cool, I need to pinch myself sometimes to make sure I'm not dreaming that I get to live here. The city is great to explore. It has temples, local neighborhoods, beaches and amazing hiking. - Jun 2020

So many. Get out and explore. Get off at a random subway stop, drive somewhere, check out the parks, go to a beach. Hong Kong is a special place, and hopefully it can stay that way. - Jul 2018

There is always some sort of festival or event happening, as well as fun happy hours and dining pop ups. I don't think I will ever get over the sticker shock but I am doing my best to enjoy it in moderation. The Disneyland is small but very cool, getting an annual pass has been well worth it to have a fun day out of the city. The biggest bonus here is how cheap and efficient public transport is. The MTR, buses, and taxis are safe, clean and very affordable. In fact, the city itself is the safest I've ever encountered. - Apr 2016

Boat trips to outer islands; touring Southeast Asia. - Feb 2015

Taking the bus up and crystal clear cabins down to watch the Shaolin monks perform at Ngong Ping, enjoying the multitude of karaoke bars, clubs, bars. Eating at all the wonderful restaurants (you can find anything your heart desires here). Watching the fireworks on New Year's Eve and then bringing in Chinese New Year a few weeks later with even more outstanding fireworks displays accompanied with the Dragon and Lion dances. There is always something fun to do here. - Mar 2012

Mostly eating great food!Also great are going to the horse races, rugby sevens, Octoberfest, dragonboat, and renting a junk boat for a day. - Mar 2012

The great range and contrast of activities available in Hong Kong - you are never bored. You can hike in the lush vegetation on the mountains, sail boats, go to the beach, or you can stay in the urban setting and shop, eat out. The food is amazing - such variety, and the most amazing fresh seafood. It's so hard to say what the hightlights are, as I love so many things about Hong Kong! - Aug 2010

Dragonboat races (watching and participating), Rugby Sevens, sunday dim sum brunches, Wednesday evenings in the beer garden at the horse races in Happy Valley, trips around the region. - Jun 2010
