We had only been in Hong Kong for 1 full day and had not yet visited the core area of the city before traveling to Bangkok for a 4 day visit. The sheer mass of people was a bit of a shock to my system having never been to such a densely populated city. I was a bit overwhelmed at first but amazed at the same time. By concentrating on my photography I was able to ignore the little bit of ‘crowd-panic’ I was feeling at first. By the end of the 4 days, I wanted more and wished we could have stayed longer. I was amazed at how luxury and poverty were literally next door to each other and also the sheer number of sidewalk food vendors everywhere I went. The dynamics of this city was amazing.
