  • In my visit to Hong Kong, I have chosen 3 places to see if Hong Kong has changed better after its return-Yau Ma Tei, Sham Shui Po and the observation pond. These are the places where ordinary Hong Kong people live every day. From my hotel, I walk to Yau Ma Tei. In fact, it is a regional area between Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok. Here, I see a lot of medium and low level buildings, many of them are very old, need to be protected or refurbished. When I got there, I found Tin Hau Temple, Temple, the old theater, the oldest pump station, the San nine district court, the fruit market still in motion, and the jade market. I even went to the hospital of Light and attended the Tokyo Hospital Museum. This is an important place because the first SARS patient in Hong Kong, the Chinese doctor who came from Guangzhou, died here. After that, it began to spread from China to the entire island of SARS disease. To sum up, this is a good half-day walk, let me see how the people of Hong Kong live.

  • Local Shimocho style. There are many shops and eateries along Nathan Road, and there is no trouble for shopping and eating. It becomes the neon town at night.
