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’

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
Finally trained back to our apartment
