- Hong Kong is truly a city of levels. Despite walking almost everywhere, we were rarely at street level. We were either walking below ground, or a few stories above ground. Public paths often went through the lobbies of private buildings. Escalators and elevators were everywhere.
- The city wasn't nearly as "Asian" as I expected. Not sure what I was looking for, but I was surprised at how Western everything was. Specifically, everyone dressed in Western and American styles - people even wore shorts. The city was modern. No bikes or tuk-tuks on the roads. All in all, just a very modern Western city.
- Lots of green in the city as well. Surprising how many parks there were in such a crowded city. But, we walked through quite a few of these parks and most of them had an aviary or small zoo or botanical garden. All very nice places for a stroll.
