Our Hongkong Trip: Day 1 part 2

Happy New Year everyone.!! Here's the continuation of our HK trip Day 1.

Straight from the airport with our luggage still in tow we went straight ahead at NGONG PING 360 Cable Ride to save us time and to explore Hongkong right away. We left our luggages at an electronic locker near the Cable car ride for few hours. Being holidays there's a long lines going at the cable ride.

It's not my first time to ride a cable car bec. I experienced it in Sydney when I had my vacay there but I still got excited to ride it bec. it's more steep and with my niece inside the cable car, they can't help scaring each other and it was fun.

We explored the place for few hours eventhough it was so cold especially for my mom who is already wearing 3 layers of clothes. We ate late lunch at Ngong Ping Restaurant but I personally didn't like the taste of the foods there. This is at the foot of the Giant Buddha, unfortunately some of us, including me wasn't able to go to the top because we are so busy taking photos of us hehe.
Around 4 pm we already left the place to go straight at our hostel to have some rest. We stayed at Lee Garden Guest House in Cameron Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon while my sis Joy and her family stayed at Holiday Inn just near our place. Our hostel was perfectly located because it is just so near the MTR station and fastfood joints are easily accessible like McDonald's and KFC. There are many restos and shopping stalls around it. We chose 2 beds where 3 people can share, it has wifi, telephone, a TV eventhough it's not a samsung led hdtv bec. we also didn't have time to watch TV bec. we are out the whole day.

After resting for an hour or so, the girls went for a shopping at Mongkok night market but I was so disappointed because items being sold there are mostly seen here at our bazaars here in the Phils. at much lower price so we didn't buy much, plus they price so much. It's just a waste of time haggling for a lower price. The sellers are taking advantage bec. if you really don;t have an idea how much it really cost then you can buy it at so expensive price.

We went inside Giordano and Esprit outlet and my sis Joy just bought some for her kids.

  1. Seeing your photos brought back so many memories for me. I was there in 2005 and 2008 when I went to visit the giant Buddha as well. I loved it there. We also went to Po Lin Monastery and Wisdom Path all in the same day. I loved it. I look forward to more of your posts on Hong Kong. Happy New Year!
