Razgled je posebne vrste turizem. Razgledni turizem. Če se ga lotiš kot je treba, potem si prvo vrsto v baru Ritz Carltona rezerviraš mesec v naprej, a vam povem, da če tega ne storiš, tudi druga vrsta ni tako slaba. Razgled je v obeh primerih lahko enako siv, cocktail pa enako sladek.

HK ponuja nešteto točk za opazovanje tega veličastnega prizora, od najbolj turističnega vrha, pa do takšne, ki jo poiščeš v enem izmed nebotičnikov, ko se povsem naključno znajdeš v njem. Bolj priljubljena mi je tista, kjer igra klavir in kjer se cocktail po izbiri imenuje Sweet Life.

There are so many ways to enjoy the view of the HK skyline. And if you take it on like a proper tourist, you make reservations months ahead and don’t mind quaying forever to ride the tram to the Peak and back. But it pays to cut loose from what the guides tell you, because the view from the second row seats is of the same shade of grey as that from one feet from the window.

Most importantly, the cocktails taste just as sweet, the piano tunes wave the same and a little less magical taxi ride cuts the quay time, so you can enjoy at least a minute of what’s supposed to be a glorious sunset.

Sheung Wan je v trenutku postal moj najljubši predel Hong Konga. Ponudil mi je prijetno pohajkovanje po ulicah. Takšnega, brez pretiranega vrveža, s prijetnim pogledom na umirjeno barvite hiše, in celo klopco za posedanje. Slednje se za HK zdi prava redkost. To mesto zate želi samo eno, to je hoja v nakupovalnem tempu.

Sheung Wan instantly became my favourite part of Hong Kong. The tranquil and cool streets put their charms on me.  There was even a bench to sit your tired feet on and see a little of the local life pass by. I considered it to be a gift, since in HK, all we did for first few days was walk. And shop.

Konec počitnic! Tudi če šola že dolgo ni obveznost, je september vedno dober mesec za nove začetke, nov delovni zagon, nova objava. Za lahkoten prehod iz počitnic v veliko dela, je tu nekaj objav iz Hong Konga, od začetka tega julija.

In kakšen se mi je zdel Hong Kong? Uh. Mora biti, da je ves shebang tega sveta doma v HK. S tem mislim, da je tam vse, kar si lahko zamisliš in še več. Vse pomešano med sabo in vse pospravljeno po nadstropjih visokih stolpnic. In enako zmešana kot sem se odpravila tja, sem se tudi vrnila domov. Z vizualno sliko vsega in seveda, z lepimi spomini.

It been a while. And let me come back to blogging with some sweet posts from the beginning of this July, when I visited Hong Kong.

I was quite nervous going to HK. It’s the same nervousness I would have visiting any city that offers so much to see and do, that is beyond my imagination and ability to search it on the internet and having relatively limited time to do it all.  And how to squeeze as many things to see in one week and still be as leisurely as possible.
