Hong Kong, August 19
enroute to India
I had an accidental visit to Hong Kong on my way to India in August. While traveling with a colleague from TI, we missed our connection in Hong Kong and the next flight was 24 hours later. So Cathay Pacific took care of us in Hong Kong for the day.
We arranged for a half-day tour of the city that took us to the top of Victoria Peak. The view was great looking north toward China (left)
and south into the South China Sea (right).|
Then we went down to Aberdeen Harbor (on the south side, facing the South China Sea) where we took a sampan ride among the house boats, fishing boats, and floating restaurants (see below).
