Hi guys! I just had my wisdom tooth pulled out so yeah.. not in the best condition to blog but I want to put it up today so apologies if I keep everything short and sweet :)
We had a red eye flight at 6.25 AM and we get out of the airport around 1 PM? And then check in to hotel (Cityview Hotel - small room, great breakfast, best location; super close to Ladies Market) bla bla bla after lunch we headed straight to Ladies Market. You have to practice your bargain skill here. If the lady said its HKD$120, you have to bargain at least HKD$50. They have a lot of things here. So many things to see and buy! Most of the sellers have basic English and you can just use your calculator to bargain.
Day two schedule was all about Disneyland. We hired a mini bus for HKD$750/person included the tickets. The minibus picked us up at the hotel and then drop us back after the fireworks. A pretty good deal, I'd say. We went there on a weekday and the place was crowded. Can't imagined how the weekend is.
Christmas vibe is all over the Hong Kong Disneyland.
Sleeping Beauty Castle and all its majesty.
The Lion King show was ah-mazing. And I love that it's indoor so you can cool down from the heat for 30 mins. They have 3 shows per day I think? Do come 30 mins before the show because the seats fill up super fast.
The Parade is a must watch. You can watch it at 3 PM and the duration is about 30 mins. We watched from Main Street and basically sat on the curb. LOL. It does have the best view tho.
We went to Tung Chung Factory Outlet using MTR (pretty easy to use with English subs) since it was only two stations away right after the parade. They have a pretty good collection of last seasons items with great discounts. I visited Furla, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, and Coach. There's also Adidas, GUESS, and a bunch of other brands. There's a food court but it was renovated when we went there. We ended had dinner at a Japanese restaurant which name I forgot. But it was located at the same floor as the supermarket.
After dinner we went back to Disneyland to watch the fireworks show. The show started at 8PM for 15 mins. Once again, we watched from Main Street.
Avenue of Stars. Celebrities of Hong Kong of course.
Golden Bauhinia, symbol of Hong Kong.
After lunch we went to Victoria Peak. As you can see, there's a big line to ride the tram. You can also go up using a car but I suggest go with the tram. Luckily, since we went with a tour company, they arranged a VIP ticket for us so we don't have to line up from all the way back.
There's a small mall in Victoria Peak, including Madam Tussauds Wax Museum. I did visited Madam Tussauds on my last visit to Hong Kong so I skipped that and just did some souvenir shopping.
After Victoria Peak, we used bus to travel to Shenzhen. More about that on my next post!
Wishing everyone a great Monday.
