Unique Identity

Recently I came across an interesting article in a local newspaper. It was about small villages or towns across the world that are known for their uniqueness. In this case, the towns and villages mentioned in the article were known for their appearance.

I was fascinated by this unique identity of these places. It has history attached to it as well. And most importantly, their uniqueness made them famous.

I haven't visited any of them (yet!) but I'd like to share them with you. If you are interested, google them for more information.

JUZCAR - Spain

IZAMAL - Mexico



JAIPUR - India

PIODAO - Portugal

Hong Kong City Tour

Earlier in March 2012, I was in Hong Kong on a business trip and as soon as I got some time off from work, I took a city tour. It was a 3 hour tour and it covered the visit to The Peak, Repulse Bay and the Stanley Market.

The Peak is a tall mountain, on top of which is a recreation area. Shopping Mall, Restaurants and a spectacular panoramic view of Hong Kong. 

Stanley Market is a for tourists, just like any other city that attracts tourists, this markets has a variety of offerings. Bargain is the name of the game. How good are you at it will get you the maximum benefit. I know I not good at it.

If you are in Hong Kong, do take time out to see this busy city, it has a lot to offer but it is very expensive as well. Land or space is the most precious commodity, even for burials. Apartments are small and I mean they are really small. So, majority of the population spend their after office hours or evenings outdoors till late night.

Enjoy the assorted pictures of The Peak and Repulse Bay.
