There is a Chinese proverb that goes:
“It is better to travel ten thousand miles than read ten thousand books.”

Once again I took the suggestion literally, packed my stuff (which is not much) and went to an exploration trip in the series of discovering the world’s financial centers. This time my destination was Hong Kong.

Hong Kong 2014 Pics from my adventures in the Asia’s World City Kristi Rohtsalu February 2014

„It is better to travel ten thousand miles than read ten thousand books.“ − Chinese proverb Amsterdam, 22 January 2014: I’m leaving Europe. Adventure begins.

Welcome to Hong Kong!

A city that celebrates light... A Symphony of Lights

... and life A Sunday night in Victoria Park The sad story behind: Many of these Indonesian and Filipino domestic workers are in debt slavery.

Where you can follow the crowd... A major shopping street in Causeway Bay (I tried to avoid it because it was too crowded.)

... or go on your own... A hiking trail in New Territories (On my walk from Tsuen Wan to Tai Po)

...or together with a group of like-minded people A Saturday leisure hike of Hong Kong professionals

Walk between modern glass buildings... Warning: Beware of falling bankers! During my stay, one JP Morgan employee committed suicide in Central.

... or try to get around construction works... Construction of the coming high-speed rail terminal next to International Commerce Centre (ICC)

... or use long subway tunnels... ... which are as long as eye can see

... or do shopping while walking... ... Lots of shopping (there are many „streets“ like this)

In Hong Kong, one may live here... One Island East

... or here... Tai O (Lantau Island), the Venice of Hong Kong

... or here... (NB! Lower housing costs!) A village in Lamma Island

... or maybe this way An unknown person sleeping in an unused subway entrance

If not then some buildings seem to be available there on Sunset Peak These buildings were once used by monks.

One may be regarded member of a yacht club... Going to the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club

... or one may grow bananas A banana field in Lamma Island

What a tourist may confuse for a toilet...

... turns out to be a holy place

Ready to see how the Year of the Horse arrived?

A celebration is also an advertisement: Ocean Park’s wagon Chinese New Year: A pic from the Night Parade

A celebration is also an advertisement: Hang Seng Bank’s wagon Chinese New Year: Another pic from the Night Parade

A celebration is also an advertisement: MTR’s wagon Chinese New Year: One more pic from the Night Parade

Getting busy... Crowd in a Professional Networking Evening (7 February 2014)

... with an ambitious goal... Climbing to Victoria Peak

Looking at the maps... Just trying to locate my next accommodation

... and taking (photographing) notes... ... to memorize when and where I might go

Learning about automated trading systems... Presentation & training & promotion of Mirror Trader

... and studying Hong Kong’s pension system A class of the Continuing Education Program for Financial Planners in Hong Kong

Listening to the founders of StartupsHK... First event of the Startup Grid Hong Kong

... and finding out about Science Park

Learning about Hong Kong dollar... Exhibition and guided tour in the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA)

... and hearing more about Bitcoin They were talking in Bitcoin HK 20 February meetup

Keeping an eye on global markets... A big screen in the HSBC main building in Hong Kong

... and trying to find out what’s going on here People Power radicals are disrupting Democratic Party's Occupy Central event.

Wondering what to have for lunch... A typical menu in fishing towns such as Sok Kwu Wan

... or where to have it A restaurant in World Trade Center

Seeing others meditating... A Saturday morning in Kowloon Park

... and attending a Yoga class... A Sahaja Yoga HK meetup

...and taking a picture of Buddha Big & famous Tian Tan Buddha in Ngong Ping as seen from Section 3 of the Lantau trail

Climbing to the highest accessible top... „Like“: Landscape „Dislike“: Pollution

...and buying my ticket to Tung Lung Chau Temporary „ticket office“ in Sam Ka Tsuen Ferry Pier

Here they go... Mass of runners in Hong Kong Marathon

... and they go... Traffic on Connaught Road Central

... and we are ready to go Going to a hike in Tsuen Wan / Sham Tseng (I’m the one with blue hat in the middle.)

By ferry... This one here is ferry to/from Lamma Island, but it’s not the only one.

... and by MTR Metros in Hong Kong Island are looking good indeed. Waiting for train in Causeway Bay station

Hinting my next destination: Lo Wu border crossing: Just got through the Hong Kong immigration
