Katie Tacito was one of the JBU MBA students who completed an international studies trip to China in June. This week, Katie will be serving as a guest blogger, sharing her experience of learning about the Chinese culture and economy.
Sunday, May 25 – Hong Kong
Our Chinese adventure began last night around 11 pm. However, due to almost 24 hours of travel and less than five hours of sleep, I am going to begin this journal discussing our first full day in Hong Kong.
We visited a Chinese temple, which was interesting and showed us how the Chinese people worship. The intense smell was pretty powerful, but kind of nice.
Next, we got some shopping time, where I had a lot of luck. I loved the time to shop and ended up buying a lot of items I could use throughout the trip. After shopping, we went to a dry seafood market, which was extremely interesting, but really bizarre.
The city was the most western of all the places we went. The night ended with a great view of the city and a good dinner. We were exhausted by the end!
