Afternoon Hong Kong Tour 1 - Fresh Off The Boat

This is a continuation of the previous entry.

Hong Kong is amazing. After lunch and shopping, we had a chance to take some rest. At four in the afternoon we got ready and went on to an adventure I'd not forget- An afternoon tour of Hong Kong. 

Pick Your Poison

With Hong Kong being a vast place though, we picked the least stressful tour. We didn't want to spend the afternoon running a marathon playing catch up with time and the tour guide.

A portion of this story was updated as it happened on Instagram, but a lot of the sights can also be found here. Captions can be found on the Flickr page if you're interested to read them. Just click on the image and you'll be redirected there.

We started things off riding the waves crossing the sea, and after that we enjoyed the view in one of the best ways we know of - On top of an observation wheel. Sights of the experience on this post.

Boarding The Boat

All aboard SS Boaty McBoatface! Okay, not really. I'm not sure what the name of the vessel was. It was a short trip, and chances are, it's in Cantonese and I wouldn't understand it.

We hopped off the boat, fast-walked a bit, and hopped on to this - A huge wheel in the sky. Okay, not really. It was bolted to the ground. It's one amazing piece of Engineering.

We took this time to relax a bit while waiting for the bus. The buss will drive us back to Tsim Sha Tsui, via some notable landmarks, which is a part of the tour- but that's for another entry. 

Until then, don't let the fear of getting lost deter you from going out to wander. More to come soon.
