After breakfast we caught the metro and went to the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. We walked along the water at an area called the Avenue of Stars. This is where the local movie stars have their stars and handprints for people to see. Bruce Lee has a statue there. From there we walked past the famous Peninsula Hotel which was built in 1928. Then it was onto Kowloon Park which was a nice break from the sun. We enjoyed seeing birds in the park aviary. We then took the metro to Mong Kok station where we wandered through a very busy market area that was flogging all sorts of items. Once we finished wheeling and dealing there we headed back to our hotel. It is always a challenge in China/Hong Kong finding places to eat. There is sometimes no or very little english written on buildings to know what type of business it is. Lucky for us, tonight we tracked down another good Vietnamese restaurant.
