We were unable to wander around the cathedral at will because there was a service going on when we arrived, but I slipped in at the back to pray and soak up the atmosphere. This is the oldest Anglican church in Hong Kong, a statuesque...More

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
