Hong Kong – An evening view from the Peak (2)

This is my 2nd part from the visit to Hong Kong’s The Victoria Peak. The weather was nice and also the sky was quite clear. Guess it was me lucky day. =)

To wait patiently and take pictures of the sunset from the Peak is really worth waiting for.

Hong Kong – An evening view from the Peak (1)

During my trip to Hong Kong, I also had taken the chance to go to the Victoria Peak. We wanted to take the Peak tram up from the Peak Lower Terminus but instead we took the bus from the ferry terminal brought us directly up to the Peak.

We were there early before the sunset as I heard and seen pictures taken during the sunset is beautiful. I wanted to take this chance to see it myself and take pictures too.

Sign board…. hmmmm where should I head to?

Hong Kong – A walk in Kowloon area… (1)

This trip to Hong Kong was last year along with my Macau trip and Shenzhen. Guess Hong Kong is smack in the middle  (nearly) of these 2 places.

Anyway not much to tell but just enjoy the snap shots taken…..

Hong Kong – Bus trip to Tai O (2)

This is my 2nd part of Tai O. If you missed on my first part, here is the blog; Hong Kong – Bus trip to Tai O (1)

Tai O is a slow moving pace as compared to the city. It is very scenic and peaceful. A nice slow walk on the jetty. People renting bicycles to cycle there too. It will be really fun and cycle and enjoy the view on the bicycle. Of course you can walk like what I did. =)

More views of the stilts houses…..

At the end one of the street lead to the Tai O Heritage Hotel. It was previously a police station built on the small hill next to Tai O Ferry Pier, to reinforce the police forces on Lantau Island but ceased operation in 1996 and operated till 2002 as a functioned a patrol post due to the decline in crime rate. In 2009, it was restored as a 9 room boutique hotel.
