Paso Robles Dr, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405, USA
All my life my mom was trying to drag me and my dad on a trip to Hearst Castle, and we always told her no. I probably wouldn't have appreciated it anyways in my younger years. However, before I moved to Hong Kong for work, I took a trip with my...

The Golden Gate Bridge is probably the most photographed site in California, but this vantage point never gets old. Explore the hollowed out fort, learn some history, and marvel at the view from the top floor.

Monterey, CA, USA
My mom and I went out on a whale watching charter boat early in the morning and saw so many whales! It wasn't very much money either. The water wasn't too choppy, so we had really good luck and saw a dozen whales. I was lucky enough to capture...

CA-1, San Simeon, CA 93452, USA
These zebras on the San Simeon ranch are the remains of Hearst's last herd of zebra, some of the many exotic animals Hearst once had on his lavish estate. It was so cool to see zebras roaming about on the California coast. You can also see giant...

Tehama, CA, USA
It was so beautiful to canoe the Sacramento river with my dad in the summer morning. We began at dark and finished by lunch. There are so many different beautiful waterfowl out there!

2218 Mission St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060, USA
My mom had a garden tour book of Carmel. It sounded kind of silly, but Carmel has some very interesting gardens and fairytale/storybook houses, as well as other interesting architecture and the houses of other famous people such as Charlie...

Stockton St Tunnel, San Francisco, CA 94108, USA
San Francisco lays claim to the largest Chinatown outside of Asia. A walk through the busy neighborhood bombards the senses with vibrant colors, fragrant smells, and loud chattering. Start your tour at the imposing Chinatown gates guarded by a...

Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA, USA
Golden Gate Park was formed out of an expanse of sand dunes to the west of the city in the nineteenth century—a history that is still discernible in the rolling topography of much of the park’s more than 1,000 acres. Over 13 million...

Pfeiffer Big Sur Rd, Big Sur, CA 93920, USA
This view is so gorgeous; it looks unreal. My mom saw this spot near the highway in Big Sur and we pulled over. If you ever have the chance, take the scenic route and drive the California coast line!

My dad took my mom and I on a drive to Anthony Peak, near Chico, CA to see the stars and sunset one evening before I moved to Hong Kong. The view was breathtaking.

So I went to high school in Chico, so this isn't exactly a trip for me, but it had been so long and rare since I had been home, so in a way it was. Before I moved to Hong Kong I made sure to hit up all my favorite places, and I'm glad I did...

118 W 2nd St, Chico, CA 95928, USA
So this is my favorite cafe back home. They have this delicious chamomile tea with frothed milk and honey. The drink is called bowl of soul, and the cafe "The Naked Lounge." ...or as locals and pretentious people call it, "The Naked." It is so...

1 Telegraph Hill Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
Since it was constructed at the top of Telegraph Hill in 1933, Coit Tower has been an integral part of San Francisco’s downtown skyline. Named after a 1920s patron to the city’s firefighters—but not designed to resemble a firehose, as the urban...

Ok, Chinatown isn't exactly Hong Kong, but they have some pretty nice dimsum in SF Chinatown, if you go to the right places. Also, the eats are cheap, so if you like dimsum, or if you've never had it, be sure to try it in SF Chinatown, the biggest...
