Three members of our creative team had the good fortune to travel to Hong Kong recently, to experience the modern and contemporary work displayed at Art Basel—as well as all the architecture, cuisine, culture and style they could manage to absorb during five 16-hour days of intensive sightseeing. Last week, we offered a glimpse of their first day on Chinese soil; below are the Instagram’d highlights of the rest of their trip.
