Hong Kong Part 2

So here is part 2 of my trip to Hong Kong. (Read part 1 here) On our second day, we had a city tour scheduled for us in the morning and Disneyland for the rest of the day (and night). We got up early, ate breakfast at McDonald’s and then hopped on the bus that will tour us around Hong Kong.

Our first stop – Avenue of Stars.

The Avenue of Stars has a similar concept to the Hollywood Walk of Fame but it features artists from Hong Kong and China.

Aside from these, you can also take pictures with the other sculptures there or have the Victoria Harbour as your background.

On our tour, we also went to the jewelry factory, gift shop (where you can buy souvenirs and pasalubong), Aberdeen Fishing Village and Victoria Peak.

A huge factor that made my Hong Kong experience different and better this time was the weather. It was cooler than my last visit (around the last week of May two years ago) which made walking and touring around enjoyable. The weather itself can convince me to come back to this place, considering the very hot weather we’ve been experiencing in Manila.

Watch out for my next post about the happiest place on Earth, HK Disneyland!!!
