Hong Kong City Park
Our one full day in Hong Kong was busy and full, but completely worth it. We woke up to a glorious, clear day. The usual smog and grey had lifted from the Hong Kong sky and we saw, even further, the extent of the cities buildings and modernity. The morning started with a visit to the supermarket to pick up some breakfast. With baguette and cheese in hand, we proceeded to munch our way to sastisfaction.

We headed to ward Hong Kong City Park for a nice walk through the grounds. It's a popular spot for weddings so don't be surprised to see 10+ bridal parties wandering around taking wedding pictures. After our walk through the park, we found ourselves at the beginning of a walking tour that we followed in the Lonely Planet guide book for Hong Kong and Macau.
It was pretty good and led us through a few interesting buildings and let us see a good section of Hong Kong.

I had read about a restaurant in a travel magazine called the Classified Mozzerella Bar. Intrigued by a love of all things Mozzerella, we stopped by. It was in Wan Chai but didn't take too long to get there by taxi. It's a small restaurant with communal seating (two large tables). It's a great place for sharing a few dishes and a glass of wine.

In the afternoon, we took the tram to the Peak for a daytime view of Hong Kong this time. It was, again, spectacular, and the clear day helped us see how big Hong Kong really was.

We ended the day with a trip to the outlet mall, Citygate Outlets, in Tung Chung for some shopping. If you want to go, access is easy: take the MTR to the end of the line, Tung Chung Station.

We rounded out our trip by having dim sum the next morning at Maxim's Palace in City Hall.

Cantonese Dim Sum
The dim sum here is supposed to be one of the best places in the city. With the economy these days, it won't be quite as full as it used to be, so it'… read entire review
