I had a great time in Hong Kong, especially considering that it was during a pandemic.  Public transport was unrivaled and made it easy to explore.  The whole region is beautiful and had many unexpected, hidden gems.  Before coming to Hong Kong, I had no idea about all the hikes so it was a pleasant surprise.  Some of my favourite hikes were Dragon’s Back and Kowloon Peak.

I stayed in the Four Points by Sheraton in Tung Chung.  I would recommend it to other students for quarantine.  It was clean, food was relatively good, and I had a comfortable stay there.  Staff was attentive and helpful.
