Hong Kong Trip: Part 3 - Weiqi

Part 1 — The Scenery || Part 2 — The Food || Part 3 — Weiqi


After much waiting and anticipation, I’m happy to release the final post on my Hong Kong trip. Since we always save the best for last, it should come as no surprise to you that you had to wait till the very end to hear about my go adventures!

With that said, onwards with my go adventure in Hong Kong!
