The Sleepy Side of Hong Kong

It doesn't matter how big and bustling your city is, the clever adventurer can always find a quiet corner of serenity.  For expats living in Hong Kong, that place is on the other side of the island in the enclave of Aberdeen.

Seen here from atop The Peak, the town is a haven for people who need a break from the cacophony that is Hong Kong's Causeway Bay, Mid-Levels, and Admiralty neighborhoods.  While those areas are all about making money and life in motion, Aberdeen is about sitting back, drinking a beer, and watching the sun slowly sink into the South China Sea.  It is a peaceful place, unknown to most people who don't live in Hong Kong, and it is no wonder so many people from around the world choose this location for their homes.
