Strolling To Harbour City - Through The Subway

Second day in Hong Kong. Yesterday we had a long hot day, and today was no different. What is different though, is we know better now. Today we had the whole day to ourselves.
Ready For The Hot Day

We're off to a long stroll today. Lots of sights to see, coffee to drink, food to eat, pictures to take... Did I mention food?

Here are some of the sights we captured. Yes, this is my feeble attempt at street photography.

Going Under

Below the streets of Hong Kong is an elaborate network of underground railway and passages. Needless to say, it's amazing and I had fun exploring here.

Colorful Shops

Lone Trolley

This area is a sort of a hub. Folks pour in from the railway platforms along with the other people just passing through the underground walkway. The whole place is almost like an underground mall.

Unsurprisingly, the underground passage we were following ended at the basement of one of the many interconnected malls.

By this time we've gotten tired from all the walking, and it was about lunch time anyway. We chanced upon this place called BLT Burgers. Today we have burgers and beer for lunch.

After that hearty and heavy meal, we were reinvigorated enough to stroll some more.

Expensive Perfume

Natural Skylight

Facepalm moment: We found the food court- AFTER we had lunch. Shame really, the food on display was especially tempting.

Go Green

Red King Crab

By the afternoon we found a coffee shop and rested our weary legs a bit there over some Iced Americano. We didn't stay long though- Off we went again.

Nostalgic Jacket

Crossing Paths

Cosmetics Section

Make Up Demo

Crowded Hallway

Something noteworthy- I believe this is among the most expensive Android Phones in the market today. Even your S series is an affordable alternative relative to this.

Dad was looking to buy some new shoes- He found a good pair here and at a discount too.

I got curious what this crowd lining up was about. It was unusually crowded at this part of the mall.

The reason: Lady M. I'm tempted, but maybe next time.

By now we are on our way back to the hotel. Nonetheless there's still a lot to see.

At last! We're back at the hotel. We went to the room to freshen up. We're now hitting the dinner table.

Today our feet were weary. Also, I managed about 13,000+ steps. A bit less than yesterday, but still more than usual. Needless to say, we were hungry. The look on dad's face says what we all felt:

It's a bit of a bummer though- It's our last night in Hong Kong. Tomorrow we head back to Manila. There are still lots of interesting stuff I found along the way even on our way back.

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