I asked a local, "What is the best part of Hong Kong for you?"
"Nature," he replied after taking a sip of green tea.
"Nature?" I was surprised given the glitzy and glamorous nature of Hong Kong. I didn't see any room for nature to supplant the concrete jungle.
"Yes. Far from the hustle bustle of this city life, there are mountains, volcanoes, deserted beaches and idyllic villages," his eyes shined with surreal joy.
"Can you tell me about these places?"
"Yes," he put his teacup aside and started describing these places with his hands moving joyously.
I hurriedly took out my diary and a pen.
