Hong Kong Stopover

HONG KONG | Monday, 22 December 2008 | Views [2667] | Comments [3]

I'm only in Hong Kong for four days, and haven't got round to writing anything, so here's a bunch of pictures instead:

Tough food choices

Louis Vuitton was so busy in the run up to Christmas that they'd started a nightclub style one-in/one-out policy on the door.  I decided not to bother about getting the £7,000 replacement for my rucksack!

Another Hong Kong shop


Central again

From the Peak on Hong Kong Island

A cruise ship docked by Kowloon

The nightly light show from the Avenue of Stars

Girls promoting an online game in Mong Kok

A Dim Sum brunch that I was really looking forward to.

Un-PC food is abundant in Hong Kong... It took me about ten minutes to walk past all the shops specialising in shark fins and bird nests on the way to the nearest MTR station.

I really want one of these pianos!  On top of the lid it was completed by a big golden prancing horse.

I'm leaving tonight, so about to check out of where I'm staying and head to the Airport Express train station where I can check in for my flight that leaves tonight.  Then I'm off to try and get a bit of culture at exhibitions by Vivienne Westwood and Damien Hirst.

Hi Usha, Sadly I'm not going to make it to Kerala on this trip any longer... heading home at the end of March, I didn't think I could do India justice without a decent amount of time. But I definitely want to go there properly another time, I've heard and read so much about it, especially Kerala! Are you guys over in the UK anytime soon? Lol, George

George, that is the right decision, esp. if you dont have time...there's too much to see and experience in India and some day I hope you get to do it :) - As for UK, not in the immediate future, but hope to soon... :) love,Usha
