Overall Experience
I gained more courage myself while exploring Hong Kong. I think the city is big enough that you can do a lot by yourself. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
My (Cantonese) language skills improved immensely while I was abroad, which was one of my primary goals before going. I additionally learned to keep an open mind and to not be afraid to put myself out there to try new experiences-- you'll never know who you'll meet and what you'll discover! - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Got addicted to traveling; street food is my vice; international folks are the best; self-realizations come from new environments. Definitely worthwhile--(new) places and people and food are the spice of life. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

My main motivation to study abroad in Hong Kong was to experience the lifestyle here. There might be a chance for me to return to Hong Kong after I become settled in my career so I wanted to get a feel of Hong Kong. I'm glad I came because now I know that Hong Kong is probably a place where I want to start/continue my career in.... - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
I learned a lot of Chinese/HK culture and history mostly through the Urban China class and the Chinese Economy class. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I understand more of the local culture and encounter much more international students. I truly embraced cultural diversity here. Hong Kong is a city worthwhile to explore because it has many sightseeings and food. The fact that it is closer to other Asian countries is a benefit that I get to travel to Singapore and the Philippin... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

It was totally worthwhile! I gained a whole lot of self confidence, learned how to be waaaaay more independent, and figured out the art of traveling in a group and by oneself. Such a great experience. :) - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

I gained a deeper understanding of the people while I was there. I learned so much about the culture in Hong Kong and even learned some of the language. It was a great experience and definitely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
How important it is plan and design travel plans for the region before you depart. It is cheap to travel in SE Asia so take advantage of that. Also be prepared for many group projects, and be aware that kids from different cultures have different study habits. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

I have so much love for this program. It completely exceeded my expectations, I met so many people from all around the world and learnt about their culture while also experiencing the culture of Hong Kong. Some of the people that I met on this trip I now consider some of my closest friends. Hong Kong is a beautiful place and I h... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Met so many international students and learned about their cultures and experiences. Yes it was worthwhile - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I came to understand the meaning of life. 100% worth it, even if it costed 20x as much, I would still do it again. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
This experience is priceless. Every UT student needs to invest in an opportunity like this. This experience helped me grow academically and personally. It really helped me see the big picture in my life. I went to Asia alone and I had to learn to live on my own in a vastly different culture. Despite the large student population... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Learned so much about people from other countries, not just local students, but international students as well. Hong Kong is a great place to get your travel on, and great for food and sucking in culture; completely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
