TFG Webmaster here. In October of 2010, I took a trip across the globe to "little" place called Hong Kong, China. I was accompanied by two of my best friends, Jet & Shelly. Without further adieu, check out some photos from our awesome trip! and scroll down to see a 3-part video series!

Hong Kong: A city harmoniously in touch with both technology & nature.

Jet has family over in Hong Kong and frequently traveled there since I've known him. He's always come back with stories of high-tech arcades & gaming culture, food/drink spots, great shopping and 24-hour non-stop good times. He's also come back with literally handfuls of badass & rare fighting game memorabilia (some of which can be seen at the TFG Showroom)... stuff that is simply impossible to find in the states. Needless to say, I've been waiting patiently for the day to take the 15-hour flight with him to see what all the fuss is about. 2010 was my first visit there, and all I can say is... I can't wait to go back. We spent 11 days in Hong Kong and damn it was amazing.

Good sake!

To document some of our Hong Kong adventure in motion, created a 3- part video log of our trip. Rather than write up a novel on how awesome it was... just enjoy the videos!

No smoking... makes Jet sad. :(

Truly a beautiful city... and an amazingly clean one at that.

Final Words:

If you ever get a chance to travel to that side of the world, I definitely recommend stopping at Hong Kong... especially if you're a gamer and appreciate Asian culture (and love Asian food). Hong Kong is a truly amazing place... a city that never sleeps. There's just so much to do, and literally 24-hours a day. I spent 11 days there, and I have to say it was the perfect amount of time. Any less, and the trip would've felt too short. Any longer and I might've spent all of my savings.

The HK airport is pristine. Lots of good food too. ;)

The 15-hour flight is brutal though (and we had to do it twice of course). If you can get past nearly 2 full days of traveling, Hong Kong is a place you need to visit before you die and makes where I live seem pretty damn boring.  ~Frank Joseph / TFG Webmaster
