I was born in Hong Kong but raised in Canada, so I find
Hong Kong thoroughly exotic. Yet, it also resonates with me
deeply. Perhaps that's because like it, I am at the same time
both East and West and neither.

I landed there at night; it was my first time in Asia.
The skyline was mesmerizing -- more arresting then other superb
skylines I have ever loved.
Jennifer Hile, Irvine, California
In Hong Kong one is constantly seduced by the juxtaposition
of incense-clouded temples and mirrored skyscrapers, stimulated
by an almost frantic urban energy and soothed by the peace
and beauty found in its vast expanses of lush countryside.
Frances Bartlett, Toronto, Canada
Boy, do I love Hong Kong!
Susan Spano, LA Times Travel, USA
Hong Kong is the safest city for women I have ever lived
or worked in. On the streets, midnight is as bustling as midday.
Christine Smith, Ritz-Carlton Hotel,
Crossing Victoria Harbour on the Star Ferry was for me
a classic travel experience.
Jan Morris, Travel Writer, UK
Hong Kong is much more than the sum of its parts. It blends
the can-do spirit of the Cantonese with all the
best attributes of a truly vibrant international city. I am
immensely proud to have the honour to call it home.
Judith Love Eastham, Hong Kong
I've been living in Hong Kong for three years, and can
vouch for what a great city it is - -interesting things to
see, good shopping, great food, and very safe. A woman on
her own can walk around at night in most areas and feel perfectly
Michelle Cohen, Hong Kong
Hong Kong is the supermarket of Asia.
Eleanor Coppola, USA (Notes, 1979)
Ive been back to Hong Kong four times now and each
time I see and learn new things. Last time I stayed for ten
days and left still wanting more.
Evelyn Hannon, Toronto, Canada
Hong Kong is a place I absolutely love to visit!
