For our second trip let’s pack our bags and discover the city of Hong Kong. Took a short trip around Mong Kok and the rest of our tour is arrange by your guide. That includes Victoria Peak, Madame Tussauds, Water Front, and Disney.
Day 1. UP TO THE PEAK. Fresh from Manila we went straight to our hotel’s in-house resto to take our late lunch. Took a short nap before 6pm call time then head out to Victoria Peak via tram, still arranged by our guide. The tram took the stiffest possible climb to the peak that almost made me feel sick. Got some issue with heights.
Around the Victoria Peak you can find souvenir shops, resto, and specialty stores. For photographers or photography enthusiast the peak got one of the best vantage point overlooking the Hong Kong’s skyline.
Day 2. DISNEY. Our guide took us first to the water front with the good view of the towering buildings. Then they took a detour to some crappy place full of useless goods. Last stop before Disney Land is TSL, a jewelry company. ‘nough said.
Still lucky, our guide told us that the park will give free meal for every ticket and the fireworks display will start 8:30pm instead of 8pm and the deal is we’re to leave after the fireworks. After taking our late lunch we rode first the Space Mountain, my personal favorite, watch Disney Parade, rode the space mountain again.
Suggestion, bring a tumbler. A bottle of mineral water inside the park cost triple and there are a lot’s of water fountain where you can refill your tumbler and because that is what the locals do.
Day 3. SHORE LINE. After breaking my fast for the last in Hong Kong I went out to scout the place and found this place where I spotted a couple having their prenuptial shots.
If you have to check out of your hotel and flight is still hours away, afraid be not, Hong Kong International Airport got everything you need so I suggest check-in as early as you can. Lot’s of food to choose from and specialty shops like HERMES, EMPORIO ARMANI, etc. and they also have McDonalds inside.
And that’s that. Will be back here next summer to include Macau and Ocean Park, if possible and blog about it soo. Let’s go back to Manila for now and get my Bachelor’s Degree.
