Hong Kong 4

I woke up early at 4:30am to climb up to Victoria peak for a sunrise view.

The alternative is just to take a taxi up (Not a bad idea).

Instead of staying at the viewing platform, I climbed up to the actual peak (next to a water supply station):

It was very foggy so there wasn’t much of a view.

I then walked down to Victoria peak garden.

It was here that I came across a female Nephila pilipes’ web.

One of the largest spiders in the world

The garden has paths surrounding the peak but there wasn’t much that was visible.

I then went down to the Lion viewing platform.

And took the cable car down.

It’s looks a bit Harry Potter-themed.

The cable car’s terminus is in Hong Kong park, which is quite peaceful in the morning.

You can climb up this tower to see a view of the concrete forest.

Next to it is the Fighting SARS memorial:

Tired, I walked to the closest Starbucks, which happened to be Bing sutt-themed, a Hong Kong cafe in the 50s.

I had a red grape jelly frappuccino and lemon & lavender scone.

At the central pier, I visited Hong Kong’s maritime museum.

Hong Kong eye:

Man Mo temple:

Man Mo temple is located on Hollywood road, which has lots of antique shops.

There’s a road from here that leads to Western market.

The first floor is dedicated to cloth sellers, who mainly sell silk.

I stayed on the ground floor, enjoying an iced toddy palm juice.

After a nap, I made my way to Chungqing mansions and ate dinner at a Indian restaurant.

Found some sweet friends on the way to Star ferry pier!

Tried some egg puffs:

Before taking the star ferry to the island.

Very appropriately dressed for the occasion

My feelings about the flat being on the top floor with no lift:

😡😭😫
