HK: Staying in HKUST

During the stay in HK I stayed most nights with Wen and KangWei at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).

KangWei is Wen's old highschool class mate. Anyone that manages to get into Peking University can choose to obtain a scholarship to study in HK. He choosed to go, Wen choosed to stay in Beijing.

As long as you are not caught you don't have to care about signs like these :) Same as everywhere else where there are rules for rules sake, e.g Singapore.

A good guess would be that this room belongs to a mainland student...

HKUST is a really nice university located next to the sea.

They have a beach just outside the campus!

Just like so many things in HK, this campus reminded me so much of NTU in Singapore. Students half-asleep in the library.

My stay in China has made me better understand the parts I didn't like and appreciate more the parts I did like. I miss Singapore and I wouldn't mind at all to live in HK!
