Fireworks over Hong Kong harbour on the first of October celebrated China’s national day. A vast crowd watched from the embankment on the Kowloon side and later there was a long queue for the metro.
You can certainly feel the English legacy in Hong Kong. There is no spitting, less litter and cars even drive on the left. For the first time in five months we were able to cross a pedestrian crossing without fear for our lives! However the cost of living was about three times higher than across the boarder in mainland China.
