Hong Kong ( part 4)

My story on our visit in Hong Kong continues today. You can appreciate the architecture.

The sky was gray again that morning . We took the public transit to Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Gardens. It was wonderful to see this place in the middle of the jungle of skyscrapers.

We also visited the Won Tai Sin Temple. It was another amazing place for worshipers of Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism.  12 sculptures of the animal of the Chinese horoscope were fun to see . A very busy place.

Stopped to see the flower market, many stores with beautiful flowers. And then the bird garden.  Amazing to see the birds in cage, so many of them.  A bit of a noisy place. We walked some more to get to the ladies market.

Fun to walk on the street when kids are out from school. I noticed the uniform they wear. For the girls it has to be to the knee or below.

The crossings of major streets have sound to help. Long beeps, fast beeps. I am sure you get use to that and do not have to look if the green little man shows up. I forgot to mention that driving here is on the left like in UK . We do not see many cars, mostly big double Deckers.

We went  back at the hotel for a short rest. We were going  out to have dinner with a couple  ( Canadians working in HK) who has relatives in Vancouver !! A very good evening and great food.

More to come with  another post  on our last day in Hong Kong. Thanks for reading.

  1. Les parcs et leurs fleurs sont magnifiques! Ça devait être bon de se promener dans ces parcs après avoir été “noyés” parmi ces gratte-ciel.
    Avez-vous visité dans le bel autobus bleu? Ça change des autobus rouges que nous voyons habituellement!

    • on a pris le metro et un bateau mais pas cet autobus..
      Malgre tous ces gratte-ciel , on a aime visiter .HK est une ville differente mais agreable surtout pour l’aspect exotique que cela represente pour nous. Quelle est la plus grande ville ou tu es allee, Mado ?

  2. Moi c’est Paris, New-York et Melbourne (Australie). En terme d’habitants au km2, Paris est la plus grande soit 21 000 h. au km2. En terme de superficie, Melbourne est de loin la plus grande (5 700 km2).
    Et en terme de population totale, c’est New-York: 8 500 000 h. (Jacques a fait la recherche…) ;-)))

  3. Hi France, the Nan Lian Gardens seems to be a very nice and resting place , a kind of Central Park like in Manhattan but in an Asian way 😉
