Cable car to Lantau Island
The cable car to Big Buddha has great views. Get there before 10am or you will wait over an hour for a ticket :)
I heard the song "You leave me breathless" by Shayne Ward today and it made me think about my time in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a great city with amazing views, shopping, food and entertainment but travel is also about the people you meet and the friends you make along the way. This is my retirement holiday and so far it could not get any better.
Someone told me I would run out of things to do if I stay in Hong Kong for two weeks. I was never bored and there is much more to Hong Kong than the amazing skyline and views. Travel to the other parts of Hong Kong away from Central and take a ferry to the islands and you would find a few days in Hong Kong is not enough to experience what Hong Kong has to offer. Hong Kong can be expensive but if you look for a local market you will find food, fruit and laundry that is very inexpensive. I enjoyed my time in Hong Kong very much and would be happy to return and explore more of the Islands, countryside and go to the mainland. The photos best describe what
The 34 metre high Big Buddha. I caught the MRT train to the ticket office on Lantau Island. There is also a huge shopping mall near the ticket office.
I did and saw in Hong Kong.
A night at Happy Valley Racecourse and more in Part 2.
