We booked a hop-on-hop-off bus tour.

Pickup point was about a 10 minute walk. Had some time to kill before the first pickup. We walked over a street and found this very typical market street. Lots of fresh vegetables, fish monger sand butcher shops. Lots of people. Exactly what you would expect to see.

Started the "Blue Loop" tour. Lots of interesting sites. Drove past Sky 100 tower. Too overcast to go up for a good look around. Continued to the harbour to catch a ferry to Hong Kong Island.

Now onto the "Green Loop". Around many skyscrapers. Some interesting architecture. The road system is amazing how it winds around up and down between them. Some advanced planning! Traffic moves pretty good. Mass transit is very popular so there are not that many cars. Tour leads us to Repulse Bay. Very expensive area since there are great views and beaches too. Drop off and turn around is Stanley Plaza. A short walk around then on to Aberdeen for a Sampan ride around the harbour. Some very interesting boats here. One notable landmark is the Jumbo Floating Restaurant. Very famous (I guess). Continued back to the harbour for the ferry ride back to Kowloon and hop back on the Blue Loop to get back to the hotel.

A very interesting city. Glad we came!
