I mentioned last week that Holly and I had decided to make a day out of visiting Hong Kong's Lantau Island. It takes a while to get out there via public transportation (but fairly easy to do, thanks to this guide we found) and so we figured we might as well see what...read more
If last week's Quarry Bay Apartments, and high-density housing are on one end of Hong Kong's spectrum, then the Tai O fishing village is on the other. While still cramped living, Tai O's famous buildings and homes built on stilts feel a lifetime away from the busy...read more

Alright, back to Asia as Promised! I was doing some thinking about my series on Hong Kong (I actually do try to plan these things out) and I want to highlight some of the more rural places we got to visit there this time around. However, you'll recall that last year I...read more
