The Smart Way to Travel

Harbour Ferries

Studies routinely rank Hong Kong as the city with the highest IQ scores.

Twilight in Kowloon

Twilight in Kowloon

Nathan Road on the Kowloon Peninsula in Hong Kong is a major shopping thoroughfare. At twilight, there is a rush to work, home from work, or out to meet friends. Fewer tourists visit this area than neighboring Hong Kong Island. The picture was taken from the second floor of a double-decker bus whose route terminates at the Star Ferry pier on Victoria Harbor.
