Macau – A Ferry Trip Across (1)

Last year, I was in Hong Kong with my wife for a holiday, and we decided to take a short day trip (more like a half day trip) to Macau by ferry. In fact you can fly in or even go in style to Macau by helicopter. =)

We left Kowloon area early and went to the pier at Kowloon side to buy our ferry tickets. There are many ferry service providers there so, you can pick and choose the best and or which part you plan to ‘land’ on Macau.  As usual, I let my pictures tell the stories and let you enjoy.

Hong Kong – A walk in Mong Kok Area

Coming back from Shenzhen the day before, I have the chance to drop by the famous shopping area in Kowloon – Mong Kok . I have seen Mong Kok in the Hong Kong shows but I have never stepped foot there until now.

Why evening? Well..this is the best time to see the activities starting and also the crowd slowly coming in and packing the street with people instead of cars.

This is a shot from the top of a shopping mall of the longest escalator in Hong Kong; Langham Place.. from the 4th floor leading up to the 8th and another pair leads to the 12th floor.
