What’s your favorite large city in Asia for vacation and/or biz?
I’ve been fortunate and blessed to have visited:
Harbin (worked there for two years), Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Xi’an, Kunming, Wuhan, Taibei, Tokyo, Atami, Yokohama, Kawasaki, Daqing, Singapore…
Mine is Hong Kong, because of the transport – Star Ferry, Subway, taxis; the restaurants – lots of high quality restaurants because there is lots of competition; hotels – I’ve stayed at a wide range: the YMCA Kowloon to the Peninsula (the latter with Chia, the former during my teaching gig in China) and the exciting atmosphere! Honorable mention – Shanghai has good western-style bakeries.
How about you? send me a message – firstname.lastname@example.org and I will publish the best responses.
