Jet lag? What jet lag? Even a fifteen hour flight non-stop from Toronto couldn’t hold us back from a private tour of Hong Kong on our first day in Asia that saw us walk eleven kilometres, ride the funicular down from Victoria Peak, take the cross-town bus, ride the subway with the local commuters, hop a mini-bus, enjoy the Star ferry from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island and take a San-pan from southern horizons island to the south reaches of HKI.
A cosmopolitan city of contrasts between the super-modern financial district and the local markets Hong Kong does live up to its press. When our son told us that we HAD to visit Hong Kong it was clear he knows us well… we would not have missed this for anything.
We have a bit more to see today before we board the Silver Shadow this afternoon to set sail for Shanghai. Time to put those Wellington shoes on again!
