I personally like the variety of Hong Kong. The people around Chungking Mansion are from every corner of the globe - Russia, Ukraine, Pakistan, India, Kazahkstan, Turkey, Sierra Leone, Nairobi, Brazil, United Kingdom, Canada, and the U.S. There are many solicitors pedaling fliers, tailor services,...More
