Hong Kong day 2.

After a good nights sleep i felt ready to tackle the mighty HK city and make the most of being here. Off i trotted back down to the waterfront to do all things touristy.

Bus tours here i come !!

A ticket was purchased from the big red bus company for the 48 hour delux sight seeing tour, there was no stopping me now !! 4 bus trips, 1 boat trip, a cable car ride, 4 single ferry trips and a ride on a traditional Sampan boat (basically a crap old boat).
The day was great touring around different areas in the open top bus learning about the different areas/regions.
The suburb of Kowloon has 2.1 million people in an area of 40 sq kilometers making it the second most densely populated area in the world. Think of the rubbish.
The bus trip also told me where the man entertainment (pub) center was which was good.

Most things price wise were fairly reasonable, a sausage McMuffin with coffee was about £2.20 so that was breakfast sorted everyday.

After a good days sightseeing i headed back to my Chinese size room to lay down in an awkward position to rest my feet before heading back out to Hong Kong islands entertainment center.
Undecided about the type of entertainment i might be interested in i headed to the pub to think about it.

One part of town is renown for its nightlife and partying until the early hours. The beer is expensive at about 6-7 pounds a pint, although they did do a nice 1664 blanc and Leffe blonde – ouch !!
Sadly a lot of the bars were full of young Americans smashing shots down, yelling and generally being sick.
Managed to get the last underground tube home and found my guest house quickly which was a result !!
Also no suits, watches or massages were purchased on the trip home.

A great 2nd day in barmy HK.
