My second stop in Hong Kong is Kowloon Park, where I plan to kill some time before the Symphony of Lights at 8:00. It is no longer raining but it is still soaking wet and very hot.
The Hong Kong subway is very easy to navigate. There are signs all over that tell you which exit to take for where you want to go. Bonus, everything is in English.
They even have a little McDonalds stand inside, selling ice cream.
I have a tendency to be “accidental hiker” where I walk up and up and up and it’s always just because I am lost and going in the wrong direction. Well today I was sure I was going in the right direction, following signs for a Lookout Point. I went up there and the view was completely obstructed by trees.
Well played Hong Kong.
From here, I walked all around taking tons of pictures. Given my maturity level, this one was my favorite:
The Symphony of Lights show was not as extravagant as I thought it would be. Still it is free and a must if you are in Hong Kong.
My level of patience was borderline running out at this point. Hong Kong is similar to Las Vegas in that things that should be RIGHT HERE are accessed only by walking through insane lengths. In Vegas, it’s pedestrian bridges over the Strip. In Hong Kong, it’s having to cross the street by going through the subway tunnel underground.
After the light show, I went back to my hotel and went right to bed.
