Additional Information

Spurred on by a childhood dream, anxieties about raising a family in London, and a job offer, Sam Olsen and his young family decide to up sticks and seek out a new life in Hong Kong. On the hunt for child care, employment, and a social life, Sam chronicles their first year in Hong Kong with a great sense of adventure and an even greater sense of humour.

Sam looks past the Hong Kong travel guides and shows us what everyday expat life in Hong Kong is really like. The excesses and opportunities of wealth contrast with mundane daily problems and the clashing of Chinese and Western cultures provide ample opportunity for comic relief.

Sam combines anecdotes from the present with fascinating stories about Hong Kong’s past, highlighting the historical events and personalities that have shaped the city as it is today.

Seeking East is a witty and eye-opening memoir about expatriate life, for anyone wanting to move abroad, for anyone already there, and for those who are just passing through and want to know more about what Hong Kong is really like off the tourist trail.

After one year in Hong Kong, where will Sam and his family really call home?
