Home Safe And Sound

In our last full day in Hong Kong we spent a few hours browsing the markets picking up some last minute presents and stuff for ourselves to make sure our suitcases were bursting at the seams on the way home.

After lunch we caught the train from Mongkok to Central station on Hong Kong Island. We navigated our way from the station, through Statue Square, the gardens and to the tram terminal for the Peak. The tram climbs a really steep gradient to the top of Victoria Peak, which is […]
