Between meals, planning more delicious meals and fields trips related to food, I have found a little bit of time to also appreciate Hong Kong for its many innovations in urban planning. During one of my days off from my Global Food Cultures course in Hong Kong I was able to visit three public housing estates that contained wet markets owned by the Housing Authority and stalls leased by small scale vendors. It has been fascinating to observe how how much planning from the central government has gone into the placement of these wet markets and supermarkets within public housing estates. Here are a few pictures from my travels so far. I will be sure to post more on the wet markets later.
