Travel: Hong Kong – China Photo Diary Day 4

Monday, September 10, 2018

On my fourth day I was back in Hong Kong.
Macau has been mind blowing and I was very excited to explore Hong Kong more. On my first day I already saw a bit of Tsim Sha Tsui and was amazed by the view at Victoria Harbour. But it was finally time to explore the city more.

Before I headed out to Hong Kong Island, I had some spicy Dan Dan Mian at Xia Xiao Fei, a Sichuanese noodle soup. It was really flavourful, not really spicy and I enjoyed the peanut sauce a lot (even though I am not a big fan of nuts).

Victoria Peak

From Tsim Sha Tsui I took the ferry, which is included in the metro card price. Usually it is very cloudy at Victoria Peak, but I kind of have a good travelling luck. When I reached the top, the sky cleared up and we had an amazing view of the harbour. People say, Hong Kong's skyline is even more mesmerising than the one on New York City. Well, since I haven't been to the States yet unfortunately, I hopefully will see it for myself anytime soon.

On the top I met a guy from Bilbao, but since my Spanish was still very crappy at that time (it was before my move to Barcelona), we had a nice chat in English. He even accompanied me for some more time, until we said farewell and had our ways.

Mid Level Escalator & Tai Cheong Bakery on Hong Kong Island

From the peak I took the bus and drove until the Mid Level Escalator. Well, no idea why people say that it is a major highlight in Hong Kong. It is just an escalator on the street?! So I wandered around the streets, saw a mosque and had some Pastel de Nata at the famous Tai Cheong Bakery, of course. I have to admit that I liked the Portuguese-Macauan version a lot better. The egg tart was still good, though.

Sai Wan Swimming Shed

Before I went to Hong Kong, Misha sent me some tips regarding the city. One of them was the Sai Wan Swimming Shed, which looked super awesome in photos. So I drove all the way west to get some shots. Well, I wasn't the only one with the idea. In fact, I waited 1 h in line and the sun was steadily setting. There were even two bridal couples, who wanted to get some bridal pictures there. I was one of the lucky last ones, who still got some sunlight. If you want to go there, try it on weekdays and maybe early in the morning, when it's not too crowded.

Well, that sums up my fourth day in Hong Kong and Macau. Be prepared for day five, my favourite day of all!
