HK2NY Ep 1: Backpacking in Hong Kong & China

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:
