It was four days of
photo-walking in Hong Kong and Macau. We had to deal with the moody weather, blazers put on and taken off on repeat. Wished we visited during Autumn instead. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the trip. We relied on the travel blogs plus the MTR app and by the way, I loved Hong Kong’s MTR. I felt safe carrying my camera everywhere without worrying about it getting snatched or stolen. If we had more time, we could have visited more places which were in our itinerary but it gave us a reason to go back. Here are some of my photos which were taken during our trip.
Hong Kong Sky Tour.
Hong Kong’s Skyscrapers. It would have been nice to visit the Peak at night.
Escalators at the Peak Galleria.
We met Einstein at Madame Tussauds. Let me know if that works.
The Peak Tram.
Early morning walk along Nathan Road and most of the shops were still closed.
The double-decker buses.
Waiting for the train.
Ferries to Macau.
The ladies’ room at the Venetian Macau.
They made the ceiling look like the sky but everything’s indoor.
A female gondolier.
The pedicab aka tricycle rickshaw.
The streets of Macau.
The Senado Square.
A street vendor making egg biscuits.
An umbrella can take you places.
Taking a rest from hours of walking.
Ruins of St.Paul.
Baroque architecture. Reminded me of one of my classes in college.
The view from the Ruins of St. Paul.
This was probably the only angle (at that time) where I could take a photo of the Ruins without too many tourists “destroying” the view.
I call this the “Free Taste” street. Vendors would ask you to try their beef or pork jerkies for free (and I ended up buying some). This was also a great shopping area for egg tarts and other Macanese pastries.
Back in Hong Kong. A train ride in the morning after the rush hour.
Off to somewhere magical. 🙂
The first stop.
Our first ride.
I felt so happy feeling like a kid again.
A Chinese doll.
Who says this is just for kids?
Ariel performing live!
Toy Story Land.
I didn’t want to try this (since I’m scared of heights) until I saw kids below ten years old who seemed to enjoy the ride. I hopped on and then told myself that I’d never try it again.
Nope, never gonna try that.
Real Toy Soldiers.
Sssshh! They’re having a “long” and “hard” conversation.
Tarzan’s Tree House.
Guide: “Look over here folks, say hi to my friends” Guests: *crickets*
Baby Tarzan and his mom.
“Tarzan! Where are you?”
Sanctuary! Sanctuary!…and there was a shopping bag.
“I want a balloon!”
Find the not so hidden Mickey.
It was too early to leave but we had to go. 😦
Goodbye Mickey. It broke my heart to leave too soon. 😦
It was a day well spent. A magical experience indeed…
…best shared with a friend or two (the more the merrier).
Magical train ride.
They say that there’s no “ escalator” to success, you have to take the stairs but then there’s the escalator! Why take the stairs?
Yellow, blue, yellow, blue, yellow…Oh! dead end.
The Victoria Harbour ❤
Looking at Hong Kong from Kowloon.
Garden of the Stars.
The Avenue of the Stars was closed for renovation/construction.
Taking a rest from the construction.
Pacific Place Mall ceiling in Admiralty.
Skyscrapers and more were being constructed.
A walk in the park.
The tallest building in Hong Kong.
It was already drizzling but I still walked around to take photos. LOL
He didn’t even care about the rain.
If you were a building, how cool would you be?
