Travel Hongkong Haiku - The Real Stars

mountains, hills and the sea
Hong Kong, Hong Kong
they are your real stars

mountains that spirit
my heart away
first sight at Kai Tak

Somehow, the mountains and hills around Hong Kong make the island a very appealing place. Take them away and you are left with
a pariah island with merely buildings and some urban parks. In fact, I heard the mountains are what give Hong Kong its good fengshui.
The name Kowloon in fact means nine dragons. And their powerful chi is said to be centred around the mountains around here.
Hong Kong is filled with talented people but somehow without those mountains and sea, the place will not be as magical as it is.
