Hong Kong: Mongkok

img_4709

Upon arriving in Hong Kong we stopped for lunch at the Ferry terminal and then headed straight to the hotel. It was probably the best meal I’ve had all trip and the cheapest. We are staying at the Langham Place Hotel in Mongkok, the area with the highest population density in the world. We have a pretty good view of Lanhgam Place shopping mall and train station. We messed around online for a while and […]

Macau Day 2

I woke up at a somewhat reasonable hour today, which should allow for a decent sleeping pattern for the next few days. We had a buffet breakfast which was better that was as good as any in Vegas and best of all is included in our stay.
