Day 69 to 74 International and modern Hong Kong

Hong Kong by night

zinni3We had a great stay in Hong Kong because of Zinni, her family and friend Jessie. Thanks a lot to all of you! They guided us both during day and nighttime for many days and we were happy to learn lots about different kind of tasteful food and most of the attractions in Hong Kong. They showed us The Peak, Hong Kong Skyline, the Avenue of stars, Ladies marked, The Clock Tower, the Tian Tan Buddha, and the Po Lin Monastery- What a great adventure! Hong Kong is buzzing with life from morning till nighttime – nonstop! It has an international atmosphere and you feel alive only watching the people around you talking, playing and laughing.

We arrived Hong Kong in the afternoon crowded by people. No wonder – there are about 7.6 million inhabitants in Hong Kong. The skyscrapers mounted up on all sides and the streets were packed with cars, buses, trams, bicycles, and taxis. After a while we understood that the hostel we had reserved to stay in for 3 nights, was in the very city center of Hong Kong. After talking to our friends, we understood that this area was considered the worst regarding criminality in the whole city… The rooms where tiny (around 8 m2 altogether) and could just fit in two small beds and 60 centimeters free space between them to walk on. The bathroom was only big enough to fit in the toilet and a tiny sink. They had put up a shower head over the toilet, and functioned as a shower if you closed the door to the toilet… What a great experience. Luckily we had no problems during our stay there – both with showering and any sort of crime. The next 3 nights we had a totally different experience. We stayed in a hotel a little outside the city center in 53 rd floor in luxurious and spacious rooms with a great view over the city in addition to a comfortable fitness center and beautiful swimming pool.
