I arrived late in the afternoon and made my way to my hotel in Kowloon. I had chosen to stay at the BP International House near famous Nathan Road shopping area.
All the rooms had just been refurnished and were all nice and new.
The hotel was in a great location just back from Nathan Road and the Temple street night markets with a 7 eleven convience store and supermarket across the road. You can also use the free internet in the hotel lobby.
I decided to head out and check out the night markets.
The market opens around 2pm everyday and starts to come alive around 6pm you can buy everything imaginable and very cheaply. There are watches and leatherware to clothing and souvenirs, DVDs, CDs as well as a variety of food stalls.
The night market is famous for its delicious meals. There is a wide variety of local cuisuine to sample.
After a few hours of shopping i decieded to call it a night and head back to the hotel.
That evening i headed back down to the Temple street night markets once again.
Day 3 i spent browsing around the shops on Nathan road and some of the large department stores and other markets such as the ladies markets, nearby electronic street (Sai Yeung Choi Street) and Sporting good street (Fa Yuen Street).
Day 4 I had one last chance to browse in nearby shops before it was time to head off to the airport and catch my flight back to Japan.
Hong Kong is well worth the stopover and is great way to break up a long trip to another destination.
