Hong Kong

 

Hong Kong is an exciting place to visit and to stay for just a weekend doesnt do the place justice.

Try Tai O - the village on stilts near the airport on Lantau Island, or the Big Buddha.

Go to Sim City in Mong Kok to find the dodgy software shops. Beware, the place gets raided and the shutters close down regularly.

"Dusk till Dawn"

Jaffe Rd, WanChai. An exellent bar that does food in the early evening, stay for happy hour untill 10pm then watch the first live band play. After that its either time to catch the last train back to the hotel or stay for the second live band. Another popular bar is "Joe Bananas" which is on the corner.

Julia brings the Boddingtons.
Jumbo Floating Restaurant

Jumbo Floating Restaurant

An impressive place to eat. Take the bus from central to Aberdeen. Watch out for the prawns.

Sea front View

The classic must see view of Hong Kong with the added bonus of fireworks celebrating Golden Week. The only problem is there will be thousands of people at the weekend.

Temple Street Night Market

Temple Street Night Market

Stand at this junction looking hot and sweaty and a resourcefull shop owner will offer you the cheapest price for beer in town and some good food besides. Sit by the road to be cooled by the wind caused by the passing Taxis.

Duk Ling

The regular tourist junk that can be seen on Victoria harbour.

Peak Tram

The peak

Take the peak tram up the hill in the afternoon and stay untill dark to see the change as the light come on.

View from the peak

Not best day for photographs as it was a bit misty but here is a day and night view.

A better day and a good view to Tsim Sha Tsui.

10,000 Buddha's

The temple of 10,000 Buddha's at Sha Tin is worth a visit, although it can be a bit steep and long walk to the top.
