Good night, Hong Kong
I love a city that doesn’t turn in too early, that stays up with me. Stores are open past ten, signage lights up avenues and streets. Tourists and local shoppers entering fine watch and jewelry shops that sit among merchant storefronts of electronics, cosmetics, bags, even main streets interspersed with little alleys lined with bazaar vendors. Restaurants are open late, and Starbucks branches are fullest at night.
Though I’ve been here twice before, this for all intents and purposes is my first time here. And it has the best energy I’ve felt in Asia.
