Work Life Balance in Hong Kong

Relaxing in Hong Kong Park
Over the past six years I've spent a great deal of time traveling throughout Asia on business and personal trips. I've genuinely enjoyed the time I have spent in most countries, yet in particular I have a fondness for Hong Kong. So much so that I now have an office in Hong Kong and spend a great deal of time here. While HK is not home, it has become familiar and welcoming in many ways. 

For anyone who enjoys city life, Hong Kong is real gem. For me, it offers many things that I value and enjoy. In particular, Hong Kong is visually stimulating with a spectacular skyline, sweeping harbor. views, and an interesting blend of Far East and Western elements. 

One of the things I especially enjoy here is the ability for a healthy work-life balance. Hong Kong Park is a great example of a place I go to relax and unwind. It is a stunning park, with beautiful foliage, garden structures winding paths and calming water features. I often walk through Hong Kong Park on my way to or from meetings. Yesterday I stopped to enjoy this waterfall and the koi pond, I almost forgot I was in the city. When I got back to my office I felt so refreshed and relaxed...and grateful to have the opportunity to be able to work here every so often. Hong Kong may not be my home, but it sure feels like it whenever I am back.
