Out and About in Hong Kong
Walked back to the central part of the city, winding my way through the buildings, shops and back allys. I eventually found my was to Hong Kong park and took in the bird aviary which was delightful.
A short walk from the park to one of the Peak Tram stations, I took to the tram to the very top. The view of Hong Kong is truly impressive, if a little hazy due to the low cloud.
Not wanting to join the 100 odd 'random european tourists' that they manage to squeeze onto the peak tram, I decided to walk down from the peak. Lots of paved walkways have been provided, they wind their way through the rainforest preserves and the mansions on the mid-levels of the peak. I was struck by the contract of being in a rainforest where you can't see any buildings at all but you can hear the roar of the city.
In the afternoon after a bit of a break and hopped on the Star Ferry over to Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) to take in the sunset over the harbour, and to take some photo's of the city skyline. I stayed on till 8pm and enjoyed the lightshow which was quite spectular - syncronised lasers, spotlights, colourful sequences covering entire buildings.
Finished the night with Chili-salt prawn, and a couple of beers at 'Bulldogs' in Lan Kwai Fong. An amzing day.
