When Travel & Leisure Magazine and Cathay Pacific Airways asked if I would be interested in heading over to Hong Kong to share my experience with their audience, I had to pinch myself to make sure it wasn’t just a dream!

After our non-stop 15 hour journey from JFK, my photographer pal Alexandra and I were beyond excited to find ourselves in Hong Kong. We landed in the late afternoon and were eager to hit the ground running. Stopping at every corner we let out “oohs” and “aaahs” at the surroundings.

We walked down to Chachawan and just as the jet lag started to hit, we found out that they didn’t serve dinner until 6:30pm. (Rats!). While that would typically be an easy time to eat, on our first day the struggle was real. We picked up a quick bite at the spot next door and headed back to The Landmark Mandarin Oriental where the amazing staff had drawn us each a bedtime bath experience. What a wonderful way to be welcomed into this amazing city.

The next morning we met up with a photographer friend that Travel + Leisure Magazine connected us with named Edward, whose photography skills are next level {seriously, check out his work here. He also took the image above}. I knew we were in good hands as he (quite literally) broke us into an office building rooftop to make sure we got the best of the best views of Hong Kong.

We hopped all around the city that day, from Innovation Tower to the Star Ferry.

My favorite part of the day was heading up to “The Peak” at sunset. Even during an evening that was moderately overcast, the city was still shining brighter than ever.
