Shan-Yuan - 2018

I chose this experience because it allowed me to gain credit for the equivalent of International Finance at UQ. I also was keen to spend time in Hong Kong, as I have always had a fascination for its unique culture and incredible lifestyle. There was always something to do/explore/eat. Since the metro lines are extensive in Hong Kong, most places are accessible without a car.
