Russian Portrait: Russian Travellers in Hong Kong

Russian Portrait: The Travellers in Hong Kong

Artem and Anna are from Cheboksary, a city 700 km away from Moscow. They are like other folks I met in Russia who have a strong curiosity about the outside world. When being asked about their memories of the Soviet days, Artem said: “I only remember the Russian soviet uniform was everywhere. I like where we are – at least we can travel to Hong Kong, Spain or Egypt, and realise that there are other places better than Russia.”


About Brian Yeung

Growing up in Hong Kong, pearl of the orient, I have been exposed to many cultures throughout my upbringing, from Sushi to British Top Talents and Tetris. And yet, after my stay in Europe, Russia and Southeast Asia for study and work, I realise a lot of cultural perception and presentation are just myths and stereotypes. Exploring the real accent of a particular country and its culture becomes my agenda of traveling. I value travel as a way to discover the diversity of life choices. After all, life is just the consequence of our many life choices; the one who is aware of its diversity is the luckiest person alive.
