Hong Kong October 2011 - Day 2

After a restful night at Hongkong Disney Hollywood Hotel, we woke up early to pack and leave for the city. We boarded the Disneyland Resortline by 11am so we can be at the hotel at check in time.

From the Disneyland Resort line, we took the Sunny Bay train and head to Lai King interchange. From there, we had a few stops and then stepped out Jordan station which was only a few steps away from our hotel.

We left our bags in the hotel and proceeded to walk along Nathan. After having lunch in one of the Chinese restos along Nathan Road, we separated from our friends and headed to Central where we planned on spending the rest of the day.

First, we passed by this building in Central where we learned we could exchange our money for HKD at a cheaper rate. Boy, this place looked like Greenhills! :-) There were Pinoys everywhere!

Bossing is even here! Hahaha.

After that, we took a walk to get to the Peak Tram. This finicular is a very old but efficient transport to get to the top of HK Island.

And so we went and hopped on it and then headed straight to Madam Trussad's Wax Museum. Here are some of our many pictures taken inside the museum.

We went to Mcdonald's for snacks in the mall in The Peak and then went back down to the city to check out some of the malls.

We got tired of going around Central so decided to go back to the hotel, rest a bit and go to Mongkok Night market. We were able to buy some souvenir items in Mongkok. But then we decided to head back to TST to go to mass in the evening at the Mariner's. After that, we walk towards the bay and stayed at the Avenue of Stars and watch the Symphony of Lights show at 9pm.

We headed back to Jordan after than and took a night cap with our friends in the nearby Temple Road where there are lots of local food and drinks to enjoy.
