Hong Kong Calling 

When we think of Hong Kong, the first things that come to mind are the busy streets of Tsim Tsa Tsui or the loud nights at Lang Kwai Fong. But in addition to these, what I have seen is a very different side of this metropolitan city. A half hour’s drive away from the mainland of Hong Kong lie the silent streets of the New Territories, specifically Tai Po. Surrounded by vast areas of lush greenery, encircled by looming mountains and scintillated with clear oceans, this suburban area is sure to remind you of urban European cities. Accommodations themselves are more spacious and the air is less polluted. The pure white sculpture of Lady Buddha is unmissable! You can also take a drive through the deep forests to Bride’s pool, where you will find many refreshing waterfalls or head over to Tai Mei Tuk where you can stop by to enjoy the beach and even rent cycles to explore the landscape.

On a personal level, Tai Po has a very special significance as it is the place where I will be living with my partner after our marriage precisely three months from now! It is the place where I will be starting a new chapter of my life and I cannot be more thrilled. The idea of embracing a new culture, learning a new language and exploring a new vicinity, all the while having my partner’s support, sends chills down my spine. Marriage itself is such a crucial rite of passage, one that allows an individual to travel into a new phase of life and grow with each new bond. My new adventure is just around the corner and I know in my heart that these peaceful streets of Tai Po are where I truly belong.
