    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.

    ... chicken (we hope it was chicken anyway but it was brown lol) rice and curry sauce. The curry was beautiful! Kind of like fruity down south curry but really spicey too. Nothing to Saturday nights in Hatmore but Isa don't worry you have not been replaced by any means haha We decided we'd get the ferry back then cause we are staying on the other side of the river (just like the town we love so well) ...

    ... knowing what to expect, or even knowing vaguely where we were going, we opted for the taxi with our new friend from Frome...he's been here for 6 months so is fairly experienced with Hong Kong. We got out the taxi to the what looked like an Ibiza strip...and without the other half of the group we wandered around trying to find them. Miraculously we did, so headed to the trusty 7/11 again. Apparently this is the norm in Hong Kong, drinks are too expensive inside the clubs so ...

    ... is a great city that's relatively clean (except for bad smog) and is very efficient. But if you're not into shopping, there's not a lot here for ya. We think maybe the 48 hours here is enough.

    The tram ride up and down was nice and the views on the top were spectacular. After the tram ride down, we walked around looking for our bus to Stanley.

    We finally found our express bus after wandering up and down escalators in several other malls ...

    ... of a major street in Central Hong Kong is barricaded.  Thousands of banners, tents, protesters and supporters on this ghostly street.  Interesting. Today was a shoppy day (there are so many really cool street markets where you can find just about anything day or night) with a mid-day swim providing reprieve from the heat.  And our last night in Hong Kong we went to the harbour-front to see a symphony of ...

    As can be expected, nothing happens as planned whenever I (we) travel. This started out the same.

    Bill and I showed up at the Toronto airport nice and early as per our instructions from Hainan HR, to have our tickets processed. While we waited, we were informed that we did not have tickets for the flight, just a booking...? "OK so can you process our tickets then?" "No sir unfortunately our ticketing desk is not open on weekends, only Monday to Friday". What!!! This ...
