Today was a very special day, not because it was our last day in HK, but because it was Hatti’s birthday! Although there was a good bit of traveling ahead of us later in the day, we checked out at a responsible time and hit the streets to soak in a little more of the vibrance!
Starting slightly later today after spending the morning picking up laundry and organising for the next leg our our trip, we wanted a more chilled out wander round Hong Kong for our last full day here.
Today we ventured back onto the Kowloon Peninsula, to roam around the various galleries and museums that populate the North bank. How to cross the vast South China Sea you ask? Fortunately the brief 1km stretch can be navigated on another ye olde service, the Star Ferry.
After yesterday’s mountain climb we wanted to take today a little easier, it turns out we didn’t. We decided to stay on the mid-levels and explore just a little further east on the Island today, and see what else there is to see.
Today we embarked on the journey to Victoria Peak, some 554m above sea level, to step back and view the metropolis from afar.
