Hong Kong

After a bit over a week traveling in mainland China, my family and I headed down to Hong Kong. I got to say even when we arrived in the evening I could tell they used to be a British colony. They drive on the left side of the road, everybody appears to speak english and there are a lot more tourists (especially from Britain) around. Our first day we wen’t down to central and had a look at the harbor area before taking the bus up to Victoria Peak. You can see more or less the entire area from Victoria Peak so naturaly the view is amazing. We stayed up there for a while taking photos in front of the view:

In the evening we wen’t to Kowloon and saw the biggest permanent sound and light show in the world: A Symphony of lights. The lights on several of the buildings both on the Hong Kong isle and in Kowloon are involved and it is all coordinated with the background music. It  was really impressive and I enjoyed watching it 🙂

After the show my parents and sister went back to our hotel while me and my brother stayed behind to look at some stores. After finding some new clothes we realised we were a little unsure about the way back to the ferry. We ended up walking around for an hour or so trying to find our way back and it was a relief when we saw the harbor again. We found the last shuffle bus back to the hotel just in time – phew! 🙂  My first day in Hong Kong was overall really nice – not to mention warm, the temperature was close to Norwegian summer while we were there, loved it ^^
