Vibrant, cosmopolitan, and truly iconic, Hong Kong is a city like no other. Described by the Hong Kong tourism board as a “kaleidoscope of life, a sophisticated fusion of East and West, and a city of diversity where new and old meet at every turn.” This description sums up the spirit of this iconic city. With exploration on every turn, and a skyline to rival most cities in the world this densely populated city will capture a piece of your heart. Browsing catalogs of stupendous pictures on the net it’s easy to see why Above & Beyond selected it as the destination for their “ABGT 300” celebrations.
Traveling goes hand in hand with exploring, and exploring and all explorations need an accompanying playlist to add some flair. We give you our “Anjuna” playlist to accompany you on your explorations through Hong Kong.
Hidden among the towers and high-end malls Mong Kok is filled with streets of neon signs. The Mong Kong is one of the bustling areas on the western part of the Kowloon side and is home to the effervescent markets which are best to visit after dark.
