 “You can leave Hong Kong, but it will never leave you!” says Nury Vittachi in Hong Kong: The City of Dreams

Hong Kong is one place that stole my heart in just a few days. I entered Hong Kong 8 months ago, and the life I’ve experienced in Hong Kong is worth sharing and experiencing. Studying in the City University of Hong Kong, I have gained an experience that is of a lifetime.

The hospitability and the friendliness of the local residents of Hong Kong is one important thing that made me feel at home here. For any international student, staying away from home is such a big challenge but this stay has been made easier and comfortable by the amicability of Hong Kong. A right blend of the beauty of nature in the form of green stretches and the urban beauty in the form of a beautiful skyline and tall sky scrapers makes Hong Kong a place that everyone would crave to live in.

In the beginning, although I had a little trouble in getting used to the place and the environment, now when I’ve been accustomed to this place, I feel like living in an urban paradise.  My day starts with me gazing through my window at the beautiful skyline and the world-famous IFC. The night world in Hong Kong is vibrant with lights shining and glimmering on the tall sky reaching buildings and apartments.

Hong Kong attracts many tourists too. Best places to visit in Hong Kong are the Victoria Harbor with breathtaking views of the skyline, Ngong Ping 360-Cable Car Ride, the Victoria Peak, Stanley, Repulse Bay, the Big Buddha, Disneyland and Ocean Park. Busy markets, highly developed malls, street walks filled with tiny shops are some of the sights very common in Hong Kong. One shouldn’t miss the fun in travelling in the flocked MTR trains. All these are just a few things why I like Hong Kong. In fact, the life that I’ve experienced here is worth it.

努雷·维塔奇在《Hong Kong: The City of Dreams》一書中說道:「你可以離開香港,但是她永遠不會離開你。」

八個月前,我來到香港。用了不到幾天,我就被這個地方深深地吸引了。我在這裡的生活值得去經歷,也值得我和大家分享。在香港城市大學讀書的日子裡,我獲得了一生中十分重要的經歷。

香港本地人的熱情和友好讓我感覺這座城市就如同自己的家一般。對國際生來說,離開家鄉是在外求學一個很大的挑戰。然而香港用她的友善讓我在這裡的日子變得輕鬆而舒適。綠色親切的自然風光與摩天大樓的城市美景,這樣一種恰到好處的混合讓每個人都渴求能夠在香港生活。

起初,我也是花費了一定功夫來適應和熟習這個地方和周圍的環境,現在我已經可以完全融入這座城市,并感覺在這裡的日子猶如人間天堂一般美好。當我透過窗戶,一瞥美麗的地平線與世界著名的國際金融中心的時候,我便知道我在這裡的日子真正開始了。直插雲霄的大廈和公寓的燈光隱約閃爍著,香港的夜景充滿了生氣。

除在這裡生活的人們,香港也以它的獨特色彩吸引了世界各地遊客。香港值得一去的景點有很多,維多利亞港、昂坪360纜車、太平山、赤柱、淺水灣、大嶼山寶蓮寺大佛、迪士尼樂園、海洋公園等等。忙碌的市集,現代的商貿大樓,小店林立的狹窄街道,這些都是香港的大街小巷中常見的景象。來到香港,你更不應該錯過和眾多上班族以及男女老少一同擠港鐵這樣一種有趣的經歷。這些文字不夠描述我所喜愛的香港的方方面面。但我知道,我深愛著香港,以及我在這座城市的生活。
