I love cities.

I have come to believe that I was a distressed damsel locked up all alone in a dark and dingy tower (think Rapunzel, minus the long hair) decorated with grotesque gargoyle carvings on the side (think of the castle in Beauty & Beast) in a previous life. In consequence of that tortured past, I have returned with a vengeance.

Glittering skyscrapers, buzzing neon lights & effervescent energy are the brick and mortar of this vengeance!

When in Hong Kong, do not ever, and I mean EVER, miss an opportunity to visit The Peak. This is my 3rd trip to the island, but 1st up the Peak's Sky Terrace, and boy have I missed out all this while!

Having just returned from New York in July, the view of Manhattan's skyline from Rockefeller Center, pales in comparison. Don't get me wrong, NYC is spectacular and in a class of its own. It's the vantage point which encapsulates the essence of a city in all its glory - is where The Peak wins.

Looking down at harbor from up there, I almost cried tears of pure joy. It was one of the most stunningly dramatic views I ever laid eyes on. From distressed, this damsel is now simply de-stressed...

I urge you to log on to (shamelessly plugging!) to book your flight right this instant. You won't regret it!
