Every day you meet people from all over the world during an HKUST exchange, and it has taught me so much about their culture. Hong Kong was really the perfect place for this experience due to its identity as a truly international city. It also offers students the perfect opportunity to discover all the Asian countries. The memories will last a lifetime. This was definitely the best decision I've made in my entire life.

I had an absolute blast living in Hong Kong for 5 months. When most people think of Hong Kong, they think of tall skyscrapers and a large financial district. Hong Kong is so much more. It is a mix of a bustling city center that never sleeps and is surrounded by mountains with an ample amount of hiking opportunities. This truly offers the best of both worlds and there’s always something to do no matter what your interests are!
