Good bye Hong Kong

Many apologies for the delay in getting back to you on this. It got just a wee bit crazy that week, and I am just now catching up on items. I don’t want to censor what he has written because I believe it to be a pretty fair and balanced description of his experience, but ...

The Elephant in the Room

Due to the escalation of protest activities on university campuses, Drexel University discontinued its Fall term programming in Hong Kong on November 14, 2019.

The Final Hike

Another day, another hike. This time round, a couple of friends and I are heading to Dragon’s back trail. This is one of the most easily accessible trails for Hong Kong University students since it is located on Hong Kong Island where the university is. All you have to do in order to get there ...

Lion’s Rock gone wrong

The Treasures of Siem Reap

Our trip to Siem Reap was quite a a special occasion. We took the bus. More specifically the night bus. Even more specifically, we took a night bus that had beds instead of seats! The beds were bunk beds that could fit 4 people in total. They came with small airplane pillows and blankets. They ...

A Day Out On The HK Island

Due to its stunning metropolis architecture, mesmerizing skyline view from various places and closely packed skyscrapers, the Hong Kong island is home to few of the best tourist attractions in Hong Kong. As HKUST is located relatively far away from the island, I didn’t find enough chances to visit and spend some time in the ...
