Review: If you love Hong Kong or ever always wanted to visit then this is the film for you. It is almost as if the Hong Kong Tourist Board commissioned this film themselves as it is essentially an 80 minute showcase of what there is to love about the city from the quintessential Star Ferry and Avenue of Stars to the touristy fortune-teller bird.

Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung are engaging together and it’s nice to know that despite the film’s ambiguous ending, the real-life couple got their happy ever after in reality.
