Monoliths of glass and steel rising above a starkly contrasted backdrop of green. Streets packed with color and chaos. The painstaking brushstrokes of tradition set against the sharp corners of the future. These are just glimpses of Hong Kong, one of the most densely packed and culturally dynamic cities in the world.

This Thursday, Apr. 28 at 2pm ET, we and our friends at Cathay Pacific and the Hong Kong Tourism Board want to reflect on #LifeWellTraveled by focusing on this vibrant epicenter of Asian culture. Bring your most poignant stories, mouthwatering food shots, and little tidbits of Hong Kong know-how to the conversation — you might be surprised by what you remember, and what you find!
