When I went to Hong Kong last year, it was like a big race. My friend Jen and I were determined to cover as much ground as we could in four days and three nights we were there. We have shown that doing a lot of walking.
If you ever find yourself in Hong Kong and wonder why most of the natives of Hong Kong are thin, it is probably because they are always on foot. In fact, most women in a position to run longer distances are fashionable high heels. For the occasional traveler, here are some tips on how to survive non-stop walk-a-thon in Hong Kong.

In Hong Kong, I saw so many beautiful swinging umbrellas, some with sequins and embroidery. Unfortunately, the language barrier prevents me know where I can buy a fancy looking.
Or excess baggage behind
