HK2NY Ep 1: Backpacking in Hong Kong & China

  • Опубликовано: 28 сен 2014
  • Ever wanted to quit your job and go travelling round the world? Well that's what we did - and we filmed it all!
    In this first episode of our backpacking documentary series we travel to Hong Kong and China.
    We begin our adventure with a few days in Hong Kong before heading to Guilin, China, where we enjoyed the Chinese New Year festivities and explored the nearby countryside of Yangshou and the Longji Rice Fields.
    Watch the entire HK2NY series here as we travel through 20 countries, across 4 continents in 9 months: yt.vu/p/PLi_ubgzYiPgvxje3qGjE1cVidSsUHajKX

    That's not the Nazi sign, I really hope people already knew this but its the other way around, its a hindu thing, it was a hindu thing that means peace or something, Hitler flipped it to mean the opposite basically. Not Hitler, not the Nazis.

    Everyone's expecting these guys to act proper and cultured on a backpacking trip. You don't automatically get cultured as soon as you get on a plane and land in a foreign country. Not to mention these are just young lads having fun, as long as they're not disturbing locals.

    Nonsense.. Im yet to see ONE just ONE person who did shit like this, and did not have money in the bank.
    I did something like this at least twice in my life, and both times I almost ended up homeless
    Assholes who do this and still manage to have a stable house back home, are asshole who have a family whos got money.
    And /or paid off house on some land, like a ranch in Colorado,etc.. that you can always go back to
    Ive done nothing but live from one apartment to another.. if I did this I would last for about 2 days before Im out of money

    the scene with the man singing on the boat brought tears to my eyes! his song was so beautiful and haunting. He even slowed down at the end for musical effect. China deserves more than one week, for all of us.

    OK I'm American and I'm wondering why wouldn't you learn at least conversational Chinese before you go backpacking through China? No offense but that seems kind of stupid. I would definitely do that before hand because it only takes a week or two to learn basic conversation in Chinese- i've done it

    Hi Karl. Great set of travelling videos. Have watched all your travelling videos and you provide some great advice. I am planning a month trip though China, and I have everywhere pretty much planned out apart from Guilin. Did you stay in Guilin or Yangshuo? I am getting different opinions on where to stay. We plan on being there for maybe 4 nights and arrive and leave from Guilin. We want to do the countryside of Yangshuo, but there are also the caves and rice fields north of Guilin which would make it easier to stay there. Any advice or tips would be great? Thanks in advance.

      Well if someone goes to Hawaii or Alaska, they will say Hawaii + USA or Alaska + USA to differentiate that it is different from the mainland. Or Tasmania + Australia, Northern Ireland + UK, Crete + Greece. Why should HK + China be a problem?
      Also he didn't go to Shanghai or Beijing.
