Such a Unique Place with a Complicated History!
I came to Hong Kong to get repairs done on electronics I couldn't get fixed elsewhere. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed my visit there! The problem I ran into is that it's not acceptable to linger in a cafe once you're finished. I had a lot of work to do, and Hong Kong wasn't conducive to that. The ferry was such fun though, the food was good, the ladies' market had good shopping, the bird and flower markets picturesque, the History Museum enlightening, and the Peak-well worth seeing!
Insider Tip:When you take the tram to The Peak, don't buy the extra ticket to go to the top of the building. Instead, ask a staff member how to exit the building and get to historic Lugard Road (completed 1913). Once you exit, follow the street around the right side of The Peak Tower and find the picturesque forest walk with some of the best views of the city with far fewer tourists, and free of charge. What a wonderful, peaceful walk! (After you get to the main overlook of the city, you can turn around and go back.)
