Travel Kuwento: Hongkong Dec 3-5, 2010 DAY 3

We were leaving on the last flight back to Manila on Sunday night. We opted to check out early though so we can still go around Hongkong without worrying our check-out time.

As tradition, hubby took a picture of our hotel room and the view. This is what the view from our room looks like:

Apparently, there are no houses in HK, just condos.

We decided to go to Hongkong Island and ride the tram going up to the Peak or ride the never-ending escalators. Instead of the MTR, we decided to take the ferry just to see how it's like and also to see the famous Hongkong skyline from the sea. This is my picture with my husband posing with the Hongkong Island harbor behind us:

After treating my family to lunch at a fastfood place, the siblings wanted to return to Temple Street to see if we can score more finds. After meeting up with an old friend who is based in the country, we then took the MTR up to Jordan Street where we walked towards Temple Street.

After buying more pasalubongs, we had an early dinner at one of the food stalls there and proceeded back to the hotel where we retrieved our baggage and waited for our shuttle to pick us up and bring us to the airport.

It was an exhausting trip. Moreover that we had to watch over my siblings who are not familiar visiting a foreign city. It was fun though experiencing these things with my family. We're already looking forward to the next trip--wherever that may be.
