Thanksgiving Break

Last November Taylor and I spent our Thanksgiving break in Hong Kong, and now I would have to rate Hong Kong as one of my top favorite cities behind Paris and New York. It has everything a big city has to offer for half of the price, not to mention the public transportation is exceptional! You can get almost anywhere on the subway or the ferry for under $1, and if you for some reason need to escape the city of Hong Kong you can take an hour ferry ride to the territory of Macau, which has an almost exact replica of Vegas. Hong Kong is definitely the place to be if you are looking for a fun time!
