Hong Kong Day 1

Photo Itinerary of our Hong Kong Day 1

Bad resolution photos are mine. Good and lomo photos are from my talented friend, Roger Yeo. Check out his Facebook for more photos, he does photo shoots. The Peak tram photos are from Shu En‘s Olympus Pen.

Day 1: Arrive in Hong Kong, dinner, egg tart stop, The Peak and desserts stop at Hui Liu Shan.

Last call for our flight because we ‘sibei gao tu’

Landed

Grumpy faces waiting for our luggage

Our first meal was at the airport because we were starving by the time we landed. I think that was about 3pm+

They had a nice roasted meats section

These were gone promptly gone within 20 minutes.

Took A21 to our apartment which is in Mongkok

For more about the apartment that we rented, check out this post.

At the bus stop

This is one of my favourite photos

After dropping our stuff, we headed out for dinner.

One quick picture

The MTR station

Was very very crowded.

Stopped for a snack at this famed bakery

Happy tum tums from egg tarts

We went for cze char, HK style, at this very nondescript place

Our dinner nom nom

Some of the dishes that we had

Central MTR is the nearest to The Peak, our next destination

Contrary to the picture, we walked and walked

Passed through alleys that looked like this

One of the tourist stop that we went was The Peak.  There are a couple of options as to how you can head up to the peak of the mountain and one of it was to take the tram up. I’ve read a couple of horror stories about how crowded the tram was, but when we were there, we were all seated.

Before we finally reached The Peak

We bought a one-way ticket to take the tram up

The tram wasn’t crowded at all

We were treated to an amazing night view

My travel companions

We just had to do a hip hop pose

The last stop of the day was for desserts at Hui Liu Shan
