Hong Kong

One of the evenings we wandered around the area near our hotel and the market stalls were fascinating!

We caught the Star ferry a few times over to the mainland. We headed that way after our visit to the Peak.
 The galleries and Museums are on the mainland so we finally made it to the History Museum. We eally enjoyed the Folk Culture section. Lovely to see the embroidered clothing. This hat has 3D birds on it.

After lots of walking it was very special to come to High Tea at the Peninsular Hotel. Gorgeous surroundings and very yummy food.

 On Friday we headed to the Nan Lian Gardens and the Chi Lin Nunnery. This was a lovely place to have a wander about.

We then headed back to the Mid level escalators and rode the escalators for ever and ever till we reached the Mid Level area. It was a very unusual experience.
 We then attempted to head back down and eventually, after a fair bit of walking, found the zoo and the Botanical Gardens. An icecream was definitely needed after all that walking downhill!
We have also had some adventures riding on these double decker trams.
