Hong Kong is an amazing city that, to its’ core, exemplifies where “East meets West”. Vestiges of the former British colony remain, such as colonial buildings dotted throughout the city and bilingual street signs with vehicles traveling on the left side of the road. In addition to cultural juxtaposition, Hong Kong is a place where modern intersects traditional; where new meets ancient. The city truly stimulates the senses and encompasses you in its’ vitality.
Lora’s dad is from Hong Kong. Because of this, she has been fortunate to have traveled to Hong Kong several times throughout her childhood and adult life.
