The models around the world attracted the attention of the guests, as they showcased the charm of high-end sportswear.


时装 Fashion in HK


I was told by a number of friends that Hong Kong is a "dress up" city so I began to put together stylish ensembles in preparation for the trip. A few days before the we left, Colby checked the HK weather report and found that with soaring temperatures and humidity levels near 90%,  HK was hot as 他媽的 ! Hence, I re-styled my looks, thankfully! [As did Colby]

Thats not to say that Hong Kong is not a fashionable city. They sure have an impressive [and plentiful] collection of fashion houses.


Welcoming you to Harbour City Mall is this Roy Lichtenstein inspired mosaic mural.


Notice the lines to get into LV and Gucci... really... Prada, Hermes and Armani were the same.


It was unreal just how much high end shopping is available. For example, in Atlanta, if you replace all the Starbucks between Midtown and Buckhead with Louis Vuitton, it would be the equivalent to the ratio from Hong Kong to Kowloon. Hey, that wouldn't be all that bad?



7 Nights in 香港 [Hong Kong]

novotel-century-hotel-hong-kong-accor-vincent-martinez-colby-winters-travel-fashionadoIf New York is the city that never sleeps, then Hong Kong is one of its many Asian doppelgängers. After spending seven nights in the Chinese region which is populated by seven million, I have returned with too many images to feature in just on story... so I have decided to break up my Eastern experience into categories: downtown, streets, shopping, temples & Macau.

This was the first picture I snapped upon arrival to Hong Kong.

Its of our hotel, the Novotel Century located in the heart of downtown. The service was impeccable and our concierge main man, "Sherman" kept us in the know every morning. I was traveling with Colby Winters and it was our first time in Hong Kong.

After strolling around the lively, brightly lit streets for 90 minutes, Colby and I decided it was best to get back to the hotel and (try) and sleep. We were planning on hitting it hard the next day. Which we did!


Colby is a map wizard, thank goodness, as I am "mapquestionable!" After breakfast on our first day, we walked a couple of blocks to the tramway, locally known as the "ding ding." For about 50 cents, we rode along the downtown streets. The ding ding was very user friendly and in our opinion, the best way to see the city, especially from the upper deck.



About two minutes into our ride, to our right was this! My heart skipped a designer beat. We were clearly not in Kansas anymore.


I hadn't stepped foot in a 7 Eleven since my childhood in Miami. Well, they are everywhere in Hong Kong and Colby and I kept ourselves hydrated in the 100 degree temps by purchasing water and juice at 7 Eleven, often.


The architecture is bigger than life. The dated style of some of the building are overshadowed by their mammoth presence.


A typical downtown street... I would not object to billboards like this in my city!


This breathtaking view was taken from the 43rd floor of the Bank of China building, designed by renown architect I.M.Pei.


We were quite impressed by the architectural spiderweb of pedestrian walkways that connected buildings to one another, hence, facilitating foot travel through busy downtown streets. Many of the walkways were air conditioned, a welcome treat from the heat and humidity.



Yep. They're everywhere!



Hong Kong is electrifying after dark, literally. The entire city is twinkling, sparkling and generating saturated neon lights. Its a spectacular visual overload.


Day 1 was a long 10 hour adventure... it was overwhelming, but we loved it... day 2, the jet lag grabbed a hold of us...

I have many more pictures to share over the next week or so... 再见 [goodbye]
