HK Trip 2015 (Day 2 & 3)

July 26th & 27th, 2015

On my second day I went to my cousin's wedding from morning 'til night. So, fast forward to my 3rd day in Hong Kong :)

We had breakfast in hotel, then we walked to the Hong Kong Central Library.

After that we went to Mongkok, had lunch at Cafe de Coral near the MTR Station. It was lunch hour, so the place was super crowded and it's kinda hard to find a seat. Fortunately, the food was quite good, and the portion was huge. Happy tummy, happy me! :p

With full tummy, off we go to Ladies Market. There are lots of things to buy, from key chains, t-shirts, bags, cute phone cases, and others. Don't forget to haggle to get the best price! ;)
We stopped at Langham before going to Avenue of Stars, took tons of pictures then we went to Harbour City to get our ice cream fix at Godiva.

Dark Chocolate Soft Serve (HKD 45)

After that we went to the Peak Tram Lower Terminus, where we boarded the tram to get to the Peak. To board the tram we had to queue for more than 1 hour. It was hot, it was crowded, I don't think I will take the tram again to the peak next time. Sure, it was a whole different experience than taking a bus. But once is enough considering the crowds.

We bought the Peak Tram Sky Pass for HKD 83 (return) per person, you can also buy a single ticket for HKD 71. The price is for The Peak Tram and Sky Terrace 428.

The Sky Terrace was supeeeeeeeeeeer crowded, so it was hard to take a picture or even a selfie without getting strangers included in your frame. If you want to see the panoramic view of Hong Kong, you can also see it from the rooftop of The Peak Galleria. When I was there in 2013, it was raining and even when the rain has stopped, there still not so many people were there. And, it's free! You can check it here: The Peak Galleria

After taking tons of blur pictures #sobs we went to Burger King. I don't know if it was because I was hungry or what. But their burger and french fries were so good! #okayithinkiwashungry

And so we headed back to the city, and of course we had to queue again! *facepalm*
