Wonderful! ? . Via @charlies_wanderings – After spending only 2 days in Hong Kong I already know I will come back one day. There’s just something about this city that made me fall in love with it as soon as I landed. The crazy architecture, the contrast between old and new and especially how friendly and helpful everyone is, truly has me amazed. • Take this place for instance, every little square that you see is someone’s home, someone who has a story in this crazy and unpredictable city. It’s the perfect example of Hong Kong architecture: a concrete jungle with a twist • ?: @veggiewayfarer • @ritzcarltonhongkong #RCMemories #RCPartner #RitzCarlton • #travelandchill #lensbible #speechlessplaces #sheisnotlost #dametraveler #wonderful_places #iamtb #sidewalkerdaily #wearetravelgirls #bestvacations #femmetravel #nowdiscovering #beautifulseasia #travelasia #mrwonderfulcities #hongkongig #hongkongtrip #hongkongview #discoverhongkong
