After 5 short hours of sleep I forced my eyes to open since I couldn’t wait to see the view in the morning. Falling a sleep while counting the boats was amazing, waking up and seeing an all glittering bay was even more amazing.
Explored the streets of Hongkong Central and Kowloon, which is acorss the Island and already belongs to the mainland. So almost China ;)
Kowloon is all about Luxury, fake and constructions. If it wouldn’t have this amazing view to Hongkong Island it wouldn’t be a place where I want to spend my day. My original plan was to go shopping their, until I realized that everything on this site costs as much as my whole trip, so I decided to walkt to the West Kowloon Park and to the ICC and drive up to Sky100. Well, the heat was real, the sun was out, the wind was gone, there was no shade at all and when I arrived at the park it took me two water bottles to calm down and finally enjoy the amazing view. This Promenade is probably full of locals and they get together and have a picnic to wait for the sun to set . Well not me. Made my way to the ICC and realized I have no clue how to get to the entrance without walking another 20 min. so I jumped onto the Subway and drove to the Avenue of Stars. Didn’t walk the Avenue since I just don’t wanted to. When I travel alone I’m always on the fast lane. I never stay somewhere longer than 20 minutes, I always pass everyone and have the feeling I need to make my lovely wrong turns really fast. So at the end I’m always out of power. So I often need to remind myself to put away my camera just sit still and soak it all in. Realizing you’re at the place you always wanted to go right now at this moment is my favorite part of traveling and it always puts an huge smile on my face. So I decided to skip the Avenue and just sit down at the waterfront for 2 hours, enjoy the sunset and the (really wired) Lightshow at 8pm. And on the way home with the ferry I packed my camera in my bag and just enjoyed being where I am, feeling the wind on my skin, seeing the lights around me and hearing the waves under me.
