Our last trip from Singapore was to Hong Kong in early December 2009. I was curious to see a major Asian city and so we caught a plane to another small island. Hong Kong was decked out in kitschy Christmas decorations and felt even more busy than Singapore. We took a bus tour through the city in the afternoon and saw a glimpse of the sunset between all the skyscrapers. After nightfall the city puts on a spectacular lightshow, that makes the natural sunshine seem rather pale.
