Hong Kong - Part II

semi-overcast 64 °F

As daylight was fading, we made our way back to Hong Kong Island and walked through the city to get to Victoria Park. Along the way we passed street food vendors.

After a short walk, we boarded an MTA train to the busy shopping district

The queue for the tram up to Victoria Peak was long so we took a taxi instead. Good thing it was a short ride, because the taxi driver was driving like a maniac on the curvy mountain road.

Pretty amazing

It was 9:00 pm and time to head back to the airport to catch my flight to San Francisco. I thanked Agnes for a wonderful day in Hong Kong and hopped on the Airport Express train. I really like Hong Kong and will be back to explore again!
