Our adventure in Asia was not over yet. After breakfast in Cambodia, lunch over Laos (probably), we had dinner in Hong Kong.
When we arrived , we purchased an octopus card ( for the public transit) and got HK money. We took a taxi to get to our hotel in Kowloon. The room was very small but we did not need a larger room. We only sleep and have a shower and most of the day we are out. More hotels are offering that style exactly because the travelers are not spending much time in their room. I saw it on TV recently.
It was rather cold in Hong Kong and maybe rain was coming. I bought an umbrella just in case and got to learn from the young lady how to say thanks in Cantonese. Mgoy! Lots of people speak English in HK so the communication would not be a problem. In the city many double Decker buses. We did not use them, we walked and we traveled by metro. And once we took the tram.
Now some photos to give you an idea of Hong Kong. I must say that the first thing that I was really impressed with was the amount of skyscrapers. Read this info I found on the web. “The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has over 7,840 high-rise buildings, 1,303 of which are skyscrapers standing taller than 100 m (328 ft) with 316 buildings over 150 m (492 ft). The tallest building in Hong Kong is the 108-story International Commerce Center.
In my next post, we will see more of Hong Kong. Thanks for reading and your comments.
