H O N G K O N G

 








We have departed Bali

Now onto the final 21 hours in Hong Kong!

A night out in Lan Kwai Fong! Late night eats at Tsui Wah, a traditional Hong Kong tea cafe for dumplings and spicy chicken soup.

A good night sleep on the 25th floor at hotel 2 MacDonnel Road located in Central - Western HK. 

A walk through the Botanical Gardens. Breakfast at a local coffee shop. No real plan, just wandering! Through Hong Kong Park, then into a luxury mall. Malls are outstanding here, I was in awe of the restaurants, food stalls, shopping etc. Taxi to the harbor where we took the Star Ferry to Kowloon. Gorgeous city views from the water, then more aimless, happy wandering in Tsim Sha Tsui - a shopping and nightlife district with neon lit streets and more of those fascinating luxury malls. Tsing Tao beers and ground pork + seaweed soup for lunch at Chuan Po Po. A couple more beers in the neighborhood. Train to Hong Kong International Airport. 14 hours back to Boston on Cathay Pacific. 3 movies (Lion, Why Him and Snatched) and a lot of sleep!
