Far From The Maddening Crowd: HK Edition

If you live in Hong Kong, especially as a non-Chinese speaker, you know how hard it is to find that one place that sells that one particular thing. Unfortunately, small businesses in Asia’s international city tend to be swallowed up and lost amongst the intense hoard of mainstream advertising and tall buildings. Because of this, smaller independent businesses find it hard to survive in such a competitive economy and market.

I want to break through the clutter and help you find the needles amongst this cluttered, concrete haystack. All posts in this “Far From The Maddening Crowd” section will allow me to share the whereabouts of special and unique places in HK that I discovered while growing up, and still visit to this day. Hopefully I can save you the time and effort of what I used to go through as a non-Chinese speaker to find these places, and together we can help them pay their ridiculously high HK rent. Sometimes people want a change from the stereotypical Chow Tai Fook that appears to be as common as 711 nowadays, and I want to bring this to you on an easily accessible platform.

If you know any cool places that I should check out and you want to see mentioned on this page, get in touch and let me know!
