... having not had lunch on the hike other than a Clif bar), but we managed to contain our hunger long enough to wait for a ride the Star Ferry to Kowloon from Central, an iconic activity when visiting Hong Kong. By the time we finally got to the restaurant we were all deliriously hungry, but the hot pot was worth the wait. For those not familiar with hot pot, a pot of boiling broth is put on the table on a burner, and you then cook thinly sliced strips ...

We enjoyed the luxury of business class seating once again and we both succumbed to our recent sleep deprivation. It is so much easier to sleep lying flat.
Nice quick immigration and a fast train to the city followed by ...

... stretches for FOUR city blocks!
OH no... no markets now for another 6-8 city blocks.. but fashion stores abound on Nathan Road.. more like little kiosks than shops.. samples, one offs .. all sizes and prices..none without 30 plus prospective buyers jostling each other.
Next is the equally famous Temple Street(Markets) barricaded at the end of each day with stalls selling almost anything until midnight. You can buy the usual ...

... having what for them is clearly a family day. There were hundreds of them in every nook and cranny, sitting on rush mats and taking advantage of the warm weather. We were initially fascinated at home life being lived out in such a public place and eventually rather sad, that this was their only opportunity to remember home and the lives they had once lived. However, our object was to travel the longest and steepest escalator in the world , which we did and it is mind ...

... he was clinging to, he slipped and fell in the water. The way he fell was very comical and ended up in him getting completely soaked, there was nothing we could do but laugh!
After, all these events, the caves themselves were so so. The boat trip made it more exciting for me. In Luang Prabang, there were lots of monastries and it is not uncommon to see monks walking the street. Their alms procession has become quite notorious, so we got up at 5 am the day we were leaving to watch this, ...

    Hostel Is Okay, Chungking Mansions Building Is Terrible

    Reviewed Aug 29, 2011

    The City Guesthouse is an okay hostel. Rooms are small (around 5m2) yet we knew this beforehand. The price for a deluxe room is quite decent for the location and considering that Hong Kong is an expensive city to stay. Room had airco, and was generally clean but didn't have any windows.

    The hostel is located within Chungking Mansion, which is an inhospitable run-down building in which you do not want to stay. Before you get to the elevator for the hostel you need do walk past a kind of bazaar with lots of run-down shops and people. Elevators are slow (long waiting time) and mostly very crowded. Next to this, the building didn't have any good escape routes, and with all the unfinished electrical wiring it seems that such a route might very well come in handy. Last day we walked past the "mansions" and witnessed a firetruck stopping in front of the building and a team of fireman entering the building; adding to our worries.

    Would not visit again or recommend.
