    Exploring Mong Kok

    June 24, 2018 in Hong Kong ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    New hotel for the night on the north side of Hong Kong so it's time to explore Mong Kok, I saw it briefly on my first night in HK but it is great to see it in the day time!

    View from the peak!

    June 24, 2018 in Hong Kong ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Well what an absolutely amazing view this is from the peak, best way to see the size of Hong Kong and the beauty of its skyscrapers, it has the highest density of skyscrapers anywhere in the world, with over 1,300 skyscrapers, and well over 7,000 high-rise buildings, which staked on top of each other would reach over 300KM in the sky! You can thank the tour guide for those facts ha!Read more

    Tram to Victoria Peak

    June 24, 2018 in Hong Kong ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Well I've made it to the Tram that will take me to Victoria peak, it is over 120 years old and is a fantastic way to travel to the top. It also supplies an amazing visual illusion, half way up the skyscrapers of the Hong Kong Central seem to tilt inwards towards the mountain, it is so surreal and has to be seen to be believed!Read more

    Walking around Hong Kong (1)

    June 24, 2018 in Hong Kong ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Starting the morning walking around the CBD of Hong Kong. The opulence and modernism of the skyscrapers is just crazy, but the fact that they are side by side with buildings that express sheer poverty is mind blowing. Hong Kong may be seen as the centre of free trade, but its problem of income inequality is easy to see.Read more

    Obligatory Casino Stop

    June 23, 2018 in Macao ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    I suppose while I am in the gambling capital of the world, and the only city in China were gambling is legal I have to actually visit one. I honestly can't describe the sheer size of this casino, it had over 6 floors packed with tables. I watched one women exchange over $10,000HKG (£1,000) for casino chips and then proceed to loose nearly $5,000 (£500) instantly on a table! The amount of money flying round was just crazy, and thought I only went in to get a free ticket to the ferry terminal (cheeky hack I know) and ended up staying in there for over an hour!Read more
