Tom...on tour !

Hong Kong (historical), Hong Kong


THURSDAY

...Epic 10 hour flight.....

At first I thought "Hey loads of leg room...this is great"

7 hours later im in agony as there is no comfortable position to get into especailly as the massive fat guy sat in front seemed to be pressing his chair as far back as possible into me !!

FRIDAY

Anyway I get to Hong Kong relatively ok,
as soon as I get off the airport bus I get lost on this massive Road (Nathan Road) and cant find my hotel, according to the guide it was next to the bus stop but it turned out to be a 15 min walk away, a nightmare when the place is crawling with a million Chinese people all running around at full speed.














I eventually get to the hotel absolutely knackered as its now 4am UK time...
thankfully they let me check in early even though im 3 hours before normal check in time.
anyway I have a sleep for a few hours then im out on the town checking it out,
I get measured up for some clothes..for the wedding, Im off to pick them up later today, about 50 quid for custom made trousers and shirt, think ive been ripped now as ive seen them for half the price off a bit but bit late for that.

Anyway then I find a cheeky little Chinese place with some cute chicks serving up noodles so I decide to eat there, and am sat next these 3 western guys, virtually the first western people I've seen, so I start chatting to them they turn out to be from Norway and Australia...

I hang around with them for the rest of the evening, we got some beers from a corner store and sat out on the bay watching the sights and having a good laugh, and even start chatting with some Chinese guys who were all sat around drinking
near by


SATURDAY

Next day meet up with the Norwegian and Australian guys again, and went over to the other island where the Peak tram is, which takes you to the highest point in Hong Kong with brilliant views of the place ! got some great pics.







Then just hung around in the Japanese quarter for a while, had some Japanese food and stuff,
then we got the star ferry back over to Kowloon where we were all staying..was on the ferry at 8pm when the laser light show starts on both sides of the water so that was awesome !
finally ended the evening having some Korean foods in a funky place where they bring you raw food and you have a little BBQ in the middle of your table...and you get to sizzle the whole thing up your self, which was cool!


SUNDAY

Anyway its Sunday morning now...

And my final day in HK....and its been amazing ! everyone should think of coming here, I think its as cool as New York!
