End of China and many regrets because there is so much more to see.
Hongkong was bustling and hot. Hordes of people and the streets colourful with signs and shop fronts.We went down to the main streets and pushed our way down to the Star Ferry as we were to meet later at Victoria Peak. The sun was setting as we boarded the peak tram which seemd to be travelling vertical at times.
The skyline was out of this world as darkness fell and lights sprang up all over the city. We ate in the Movenpick resteraunt at the peak which cost a fortune in comparison to most of our meals in China and on the whole not as nice or tasty.
As i was leaving the next day for Vietnam and most of the rest were leaving later that day we arranged to meet for beakfast the following morning.
Around 9am i went down to see the electronic shops area but the offers were too good to make quick decisions. Probably will regret that. Late morning and a bus to the new airport, The drive out was amazing with new construction everywhere and different new bridges and roads holding the skyline. The airport itself was clean, slick and impressive compared to the old one which i remember form a number of years ago.
En route to Hanoi.
