On day 2 in Hong Kong, we took the bus (double decker buses!) to an area called Stanley. This is much quieter area than we were in the first day. Of course, there were several markets and lots of shopping! We noticed that this area had much more foreign (non-Asian) people than we saw the previous day. We walked down to a little beach and sat by the water for a while. It was a much prettier/sunnier day than the day before!
After we left the Stanley market, we took the bus to ride the “peak tram.” Going to see “the peak” is one of the “must-do” things in Hong Kong. Basically, you ride a trolley to highest point in Hong Kong. Once you get up there, you can take pictures, eat, and shop (of course). One thing that I did notice (and took me by surprise!) is that the toilets are really just holes in the ground. I wasn’t exactly sure what to do, but I did a deep squat and got out of there!
For dinner, we went to the buffet at the Intercontinental hotel in Kowloon. It was really amazing. We ate sashimi, beef filet, lobster, and dumplings. Thank God we are doing alot of walking!!
