I had been in Hong Kong 3 times in this travel. I saw the Hong Kong was different every times.

I wanted some informations about Hong Kong.I don't like just following guide book.  I met Gloria before I come in Hong Kong because we had meet-up in Osaka. She taught me the Lantau island that I had never visited in Hong Kong before. I'll go there!!

We used the Air India for the first time was not so bad. Price is cheaper. If they could share mileage with other company it'll be good for me! I was with my friend Mathieu. I never saw his activity in Korea when we went in Busan. But in Hong Kong he was really active! I just follow him because I'm not good at reading a MAP!!

We stayed  near the station at North Point. It was good for us because it was almost rainy days in Hong Kong.


At the first day we went to the Hong Kong art museum. We used 1day pass of subway. We could buy it at the receptionist. It was just 55H$ and it's included some discounts of sight seeing places. And I really liked subway in Hong Kong because the transfer was quite simple.

Hong Kong museum of art was Kowloon side. There were kept over 15000 things in all 4 floors. We could make an enjoyment in there because outside was rainy...   We moved to Hong Kong side after museum because I wanted to come the Man Mou Temple at Sheung Wan. The Man Mou Temple is enshrined as literary and martial art both. I saw many prayer in there. They put on fire to a spiral smells.

We climbed the Victoria Peak by foot!!
It'll need around 1 year till finish.Likely this prayer would become truth after a year...   
There was a lot of smoke. I loved atmosphere at this place.

We faced at the Victoria Peak after there. We climbed Hillside Escalator and cross over HongKong Zoological&Botanical Gardens.
There were quite nice area I think. People were so kind when we asked the station of the Peak Tram. It's one of my favorite thing in travel.  But we didn't know that they taught us the station was top of the Victoria Peak. lol  We had to climb by foot.But it's also good experience I think. I could see the Hong Kong town by middle of the mountain. And I could see the Peak tower from the under! I saw the night viewing from top of the Victoria Peak was so better than I came here last time.

Sure, I took it by foot:)

Next day, It was cloudy but not rainy. I went to the Lantau Island that was recommended from Gloria. It was really nice place. We could see a big Buddha at top of mountain. And we walked "Wisdom Path". I couldn't believe that there is Hong Kong because I never hear noise and so many people. I liked this place. I feel good when I discover new things. It's also my one of pleasure in traveling.

At night I met my Japanese friend who is living in Hong Kong for 16 years. He took us sea foods restaurant at Pau Ma Tei(Happy Valley).We ate lobster and abalone,squilla...so good dishes. I don't know how much he paid... lol
After dinner we went to Temple Street for shopping of cheapest. We got a  good helper who can speak Cantonese well. But We didn't need the helper because Mathieu could make discount very well;) I learnt it from him!

I'll come Hong Kong again because I don't know still about here:)
