Hong Kong is a fun city full of transportation. On one day we arrived by plane,
took and express train from the airport to the hotel, took a taxi from the train, took a double decker tram within the city
and then took the mid-level outdoor escalators thru the heart of the city with great views of the city streets below…
Then we took a tram up to the top of Victoria peak and back down. And, finally, one last taxi back to our hotel.
The next day we took the MTR and then a cable car up to the world’s largest bronze, seated, outdoor Buddha,
an island bus to a fishing village
and a ferry boat
back to the tram
back to our hotel!
In 2008 we went to Hong Kong for our Fall Break. Here we are again! Back then, I remember being afraid to even leave the hotel with my little four year old and six year old boys while Dave was working. This time, on Dave’s work day, we managed to go to Ocean Park Amusement Park on our own.
No trip to Hong Kong is complete without some pictures of the sky line! We got to see it from every angle.
There were wonderful views coming back on the ferry from Lantau Island (home of the big buddha):
Here’s a view of the newly finished ICC building on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong – we stayed in the Ritz Carlton in this hotel – we were on the 107th floor and we swam in the pool on the 118th floor!
Here’s the city from the 118th floor (with the tunnel that leads from Kowloon to Hong Kong in the foreground):
And finally, the Ritz was such a treat – here’s some memories from the amazing hotel pool:
