Hong Kong

Warm weather, yay! Finally I can bust out the flip flops and remove some of the layers. Arrived in Hong Kong, the last of our stops on our China tour. We decided to go out for a late lunch altogether before people started to depart on their next adventure the following the day. We went for our final dim sum and I have fallen in love with pork buns. We then took a walk along Victoria Harbour where we had a clear view of Hong Kong Island (more sky scrapers)!

We then took the ferry across to Hong Kong Island and took the tram to the top of Victoria Peak to see what Hong Kong at night looked like from a height. Hong Kong is truly a magical place and somewhere that I would happily live in the future (if I had the money). 

After we visited the Peak, we took a bus back down and then took a walk through the night market. On the way we walked through part of the protests (which have died down dramatically in this part of Hong Kong as they have moved on else where), it was interesting to see the different displays created and the few that still remained camped out on the street (but also quite glad we weren't there for the full protest!).
