Samantha Brown's Places to Love

Hong Kong, China

Traveling to a city with so much to see is often a challenge, but not for Samantha! She starts her journey through Hong Kong by first visiting PMQ, a venue for local arts and design. After visiting various shops, Samantha meets designer Douglas Young at his popular Goods of Desire shop and learns how to play the generational tile-based game, Mahjong. Taking a stroll through the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, Samantha takes in the unusual sights of this unique street, seeing all the exotic birds and ornate cages. Continuing on, Samantha visits the Kung Wo Beancurd Factory in the Sham Shui Po neighborhood, where she samples cold soy milk and other soy-based dishes, while learning about the process of making tofu. When visiting a foreign city there is something about frequenting a familiar place, and so, Samantha choses an East meets West tea shop to continue this ritual, where the customary breakfast often includes eggs, ramen noodles and a hot lemon cola. Venturing outside the busy city, Samantha takes a tranquil hike in the Sha Lo Tung area with a local hiking group and takes in the beauty of the lush woodlands. Samantha finishes her trip off when she takes an architecture tour with a Feng Shui Advisor, who discusses energy, the importance of its flow, and how it is the primary design focus for many prominent buildings in the financial district.
