        Hostel Is Okay, Chungking Mansions Building Is Terrible

        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.

        ... we had walked around a few weeks ago. The views south looked towards the airport, with aircraft clearly flying in sync, taking their turn to land / take off. As our walk continued we started to see more and more of the harbour that defines Hong Kong. The island, with Kowloon and the New Territories in the background, eventually came into view with skyscrapers reaching up to heights that almost overshadowed the Peak. Near the end of the walk we saw the ...

        ... problems pandas now face and some of the conservation work being done. A big thing is to stop using bamboo chopsticks - probably more aimed at the Eastern rather than Western visitors. We chose our panda photos, but decided to leave purchasing more (cuddly!) stuff until later in the day to avoid carrying it around.

        After a much needed drink we looked around the rest of the park. Two more much older pandas are in a different section, we saw the oldest panda in ...

        Gwynn and I were up at 5:00 AM partly due to jetlag and partly due to the impending arrival of the kids. Around 6 we got a text that Ar, Andrew and Jeremy had landed. We got a follow up message that said they ditched Jeremy at immigration (the line was too long) and used their diplomatic passports to cut the line. Gwynn was besides herself. How could they abandon baby brother like that? He'll never find his way to the hotel now. About ...

        ... wishing us a Happy Honeymoon.........

        Over drinks in the lounge we meet a couple who are in the room next us, an Irishman and his new English wife who just happened to be on their honeymoon. Oh oh, but they advised they also got a bottle of champagne but no roses. We manage to scoff enough food and drink to keep us happy and go back to our room to watch the laser light show over the Harbour before heading out to the Temple Street Night Market. No purchases ...

        ... it was -35C in Ottawa…so needed a heavy winter coat in a very real way. I had my parents drive me to the airport and I took off my jacket in the van and rushed into the airport (I had on just a pair of capris and sweater etc – not WINTER clothing – lol). My parents brought in my bags and called me a WUSS…Can you believe that, me a wuss…Hahahahahaha…ok, I guess I was.

        I had 4 flights and 34 hours to reach my final destination ...
