The Many Markets of Hong Kong

The reason for Andy’s business in Asia was to learn more about the various Asian investment markets.  Given I am not working and the children are not in school, we get to come along on trips.  Our first stop is to Hong Kong…

This is actually my third trip to Hong Kong.  The city’s beauty never ceases to amaze me every time.  At eight every night they light up the buildings with neon and lasers while music highlights the beauty across the harbor.

While Andy researched the stock market.  The children and I explored a few markets of our own.  First was the bird market lined with beautiful cages…

and birds…

and of course bird food…

Bird Food That Wiggles

Jumping Bird Food

Down the Street a bit was the Goldfish Market.  There we dozens of shops filled with fish, aquariums, and aquatic plants.

The Flower Market was busy with everyone buying mandarin orange trees and decorations for Chinese New Year that starts on Monday.

Aidan and Sydney saw many animals they would like to invest in but alas travel and more living creatures to care for does not exactly fit in well to our plans.

  1. Wow….there is more to this wonderful wide wide world than just restaurants and food courts….I feel enlightened and reassurred that Indonesia and S.E. Asia has not gone the way of Kentucky Fried Chicken…. yet!!! 😉

    Thank you!

    P.S. do not let the children touch any dead chickens!

    • There is KFC, McDonald’s, Subway, Popeye’s Fried Chicken and a Dunkin Donuts across the street. Fortunately there is much more than that as well. No dead chickens except what they eat on their plate.
