Hong Kong

I started 2019 doing what I love – traveling to a new place.

Without getting into whether Hong Kong is a unique country, China says it isn’t, I tried to see as much of it as I could over a few days. Using “the book” as my guide, these are the sights I enjoyed.

Victoria Harbour

I hung around the harbor one night for the famed 8 pm light show, but I wasn’t very impressed. And it wasn’t easy to photograph, so mostly this is just another night picture of the harbor.

Victoria Peak

I wouldn’t recommend waiting in a three-hour line to take the tram – there are other ways to get to the peak when it is busy, but everyone should see HK from here.

Chi Lin nunnery garden

My favorite place in HK. I already did a separate post on this fantastic garden, but here are more pictures.

Hong Kong museum of history

This is a nice museum that walks you through the history of HK.

The museum also included an exhibit on carved wood that is then covered with gold foil. I can’t imagine learning such a craft.

The Ladies market and Temple street night market were not worth seeing. I can buy the same junk in Shanghai. The Temple street market also had lots of street food options, but we had already eaten so we didn’t try any.

I treated myself to an afternoon tea at a beautiful hotel.

The NYE fireworks were great. So many people!!
