There are many favorites of mine for various reasons. I love Mong Kok, basically any cooked food center, and Temple Street in Jordan because I love seeing unbridled capitalism at work. Only the barest regulation applies, and even that is skirted.
I love the hill on which I work, Tao Fung Shan for the frequent monkey visits and views from my office, especially after a rain, where the Shatin Valley looks like. Fairy tale.
I love Kadoorie farm for the gorgeous nature and agriculture mixed together. I like the whole area around Yuen Long because it is the only place in Hong Kong with undistirbed flat space. It reminds me of a desert or moonscape, especially around Kat Hing Wai. I love Stanley for the waterfront. It is a place one can always escape to for a brief reminder of life in the west.
I love sitting out at DecknBeer in TsT waterfront watching all the traffic in HK harbor passing by.
I don't especially
Like Discovery Bay. I don't like Ma Wan. I don't like the midlevels, but the last only because my entire time in HK has been spent pushing a stroller around, and it is extraordinarily difficult to both get to and navigate the area with one.
