Hong Kong

I happen to be half-Chinese, and have some family in Hong Kong. We had been wanting to take a ski trip to Hokkaido, Japan for a few years now, so when were were planning a trip to Japan for late February 2012, we thought we'd take the opportunity to visit Hong Kong first.  Hong Kong is truly an amazing city, and is surprisingly easy to navigate since almost everything is in English.  We spent a few days sightseeing, eating excellent food, visiting family, and exploring!  All told we were there only 3.5 days (we took a redeye flight from Hong Kong to Sapporo) but it was a great time.
