GP’s Hong Kong Guide


I spent just a few days in Hong Kong in October while on set for a film. The city is frenetic and crazy but has an incredible energy. It’s a magical place and I hope to visit again sometime soon. In the meantime, here’s my list of great spots for a whirlwind visit.

Love, gp

  • We arrived on National Day and there were some spectacular fireworks.
  • A boat ride is a wonderful way to see Hong Kong and get
    away from the city—it’s so busy it almost vibrates. I was
    lucky to catch a ride on a friend’s boat.
  • Red Lanterns in
    a street-side marketplace.
  • Hong Kong hosts a pretty major lightshow on the buildings facing the harbor every single night.
