Left Barcelona at 10 pm for a 7 hour flight to Dubai, 2 hour layover and after a further 7 hour flight arrived in Hong Kong about 9.30 pm. Straight to hotel and to bed, Regal Kowloon Hotel, 14th floor. HK is a city of about 7 million and most are housed in very tall dense apartment buildings, the whole city is covered with these buildings. All the tourist type sites are always crowded and difficult to see, such as the tram to the top of Victoria Peak. The weather was almost tropical after Europe and didn’t need to wear jackets etc. We found that HK isn’t the bargain city we remembered and I guess that the economic development of China has raised the standards quite significantly, as per the comment that China has more Billionaires than the USA. But there are bargains still out there its just a matter of looking.
Part of Nathan Road, one of the main thoroughfares in Kowloon. Always very busy.
That was the end of our trip. We are back at home and were almost flattened by the 38 degrees and high humidity but we will get used to it. Always nice to get home again and catch up with family and friends. Thanks to our house sitters Tammy and Fred, they did a great job and to all the people who read the posts and made a comment, it was great to get some feedback. Well that’s it until next time.
