In Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China

People go to Hong Kong for eating and shopping, the people of Hong Kong go to Shenzhen. I got a 2 hour foot massage, brief pedicure, a haircut and shampoo (which actually was a head massage by a sullen-looking girl who lathered my head with one hand, massaged, wringed and not a blob of foam escaped her grip) - all for $15AUD. However, avid shoppers should be militant with their bargaining here. I was almost conned into paying $40AUD for a Burberry copy handbag. Luckily my aunt was more discerning and I paid $15AUD to different vendor.
For anyone heading to Hong Kong, Lantua Island is definitely worth a look. Old and young fishing families still live on stilted houses above water, some are ramshackled-safety hazards made of rusting corrugated steel and used metal. I'm surprised that they're still standing despite HK's typhoon seasons.

An air hostess took the last photo just before I entered the departure section.
