Yelp Rises To The Occasion in Hong Kong

Yelp 將於香港蓄勢崛起

香港擁有世界上最多的摩天大樓、世界上最長的戶外行人扶手電梯,以及世界上最大的快速渡輪船隊,在這繁華活躍的海港襯托下,不愧為一個充滿活力、變化多端的大都會。今天,Yelp 很榮幸地能把香港加入我們不斷擴展的國際級城市大家庭。

這個前英國殖民地是世界上人口最稠密的地方之一。要容納超過七百萬人口,香港人自然要奮勇向「上」——對,香港有一千二百六十八幢摩天大樓,不僅是全球最多,而且是紐約市的雙倍!

如果你是公共交通工具的發燒友,你很快便會愛上香港。超過九成的香港人每日上下班都會乘搭巴士、小巴、渡輪、電車或者地下鐵路。你也可以看到人們在全球最長的戶外行人扶手電梯上熙來攘往。但不要認定這裡是個石屎森林,因為香港有四成土地被規劃為郊野公園,所以敬請準備好地圖、指南針和手提電話以及一副探險精神!

說起探險,就一定要到旺角或者深水埗,感受一下蓬勃的本土街頭文化——不論是跳蚤市場歌舞表演、還是中式寺廟咖喱魚蛋。而無論是對於點心大排檔或者私房菜,每一位香港人都是食家。這裡擁有亞洲區內人均而言最多的餐廳,故此在Yelp上令人垂涏欲滴的評語必定能大派用場。

Yelp Rises To The Occasion in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is the city with the most skyscrapers in the world, the world’s largest escalator system, and the world’s biggest ferry fleet; this bustling harbor is a vibrant and versatile metropolis. Today, Yelp is proud to include Hong Kong in its growing family of world class cities.

This former British Colony is one of the most densely populated places in the world. Accommodating more than 7 million residents forced Hong Kong to grow up, literally. HK boasts 1,268 skyscrapers – the most in the world and over twice the amount in NYC!

For aficionados of public transit, it doesn't get any better than HK. Over 90% of Hongkongers’ daily commutes involve buses, mini-buses, ferries, trams, and/or trains. You’ll also see locals hopping on and off the world’s largest escalator system! But it’s not all concrete jungle as 40% of Hong Kong’s land is designated for country parks, so don’t forget to bring your hiking boots and your spirit of adventure.

Speaking of adventuring, hit up Mong Kok or Sham Shui Po and you’ll be rewarded with a thriving local street culture — from flea markets and live bands to local temples and fish balls. And whether it’s dim sum, dai pai dong, or private kitchens, Hongkongers are bona fide foodies. Boasting one of Asia’s highest concentrations of restaurants per capita, that surely means a lot of tasty Yelp reviews on the way.
