I spent a week in Hong Kong over Christmas. It was WONDERFUL. The sights and food were amazing, I LOVED IT! It is one of my favorite places I’ve visited. I will be posting many photos from it.
Despite being Winter in Japan and my home in the US, Hong Kong was about 24 degrees c. (~74 deg. f). These photos are a bit dull because it was overcast this day, but it shows a very interesting ride I took!
There is a ridiculously long cable car on Lantau Island that takes you to a mountain on which there is a giant Buddha next to a monastery. It was really awesome! The cable car is so long it takes half an hour to reach the destination. I will post photos of the great Buddha in the next post. Hong Kong is reasonably priced too with my 2 way tickets for the train from Kowlook to Lantau and the cable car only being around $20 if I recall. It was a nice break from Japan’s annoying inflated prices!
