7 days in HONG KONG Nov.19 - 26 What an incredibly enjoyable and exciting experience.
Our 8hr flight from Brisbane Australia to HK on Qantas was enjoyable.
On arrival in HK the processing procedures were without delay and transportation to our
Hotel was a relatively straightforward process.
confusion of shuffling for positions in the traffic of Manilla in The Phillippines.
I think the three of us were so overawed by the multitudes of people, honking horns on jam-packed busy streets with the flashing of neon signs everywhere.
The staff at The Park hotel greeted us enthusiastically and took care of all procedures efficiently. This was Saturday evening.
Bordering now on 8pm (10pm ours) we took to the streets for a quick familiarisation and a
morsel to eat we eventually retired to bed at 10pm (12mid ours) exhausted after the full day of travel and 2hour time difference.
I was awake at 1:20 (3:20 ours) so took to the streets to tire myself out and check out our surroundings without the masses of people getting back to the hotel at 3:30am
I must say that I was surprised that as a 70yr old to be confronted on a couple of occasions by madams that wanted me to wander off with them.
Fortunately for us our first full day is Sunday so hopefully the pace of life around these parts
might be a bit more tranquil.
I do have 5 pages of exciting and exhilarating coverage of our stay....too much to bore anyone
Shenzhen was a MUST for bargain hunters.
Octopus card..get it, get it, get it.
Taxis, cheap, cheap cheap.
If you want a thrill...top deck, front seat, left hand side of the double decker bus coming down from the peak.........Really something you will remember.
Wing Shing Photo Supplies 91-95 Fa Yuen St Mongkok Kowloon (3 different stores there in
Mongkok) was the ONLY dealer that
(a) Had the lowest price on the product I was seeking
(b) Was the ONLY dealer that would negotiate on price.
Had a GREAT TIME
PEOPLE...friendly, hospitable, helpful and HONEST...that’s how we found them.
