We had a full day to spend in Hong Kong between our flight from Phuket and the return flight home, so decided to spend it mostly wandering and exploring the Kowloon side. Our hotel this time was also in Kowloon with a beautiful view across the harbor.
A short MTR ride away was the Flower Market.
Then the Bird Market…
And the Goldfish Market. Pets that can be kept in small spaces are popular in a city where space is at a premium.
After lunch we hopped on the ferry back over to Hong Kong Island to search out a tea shop that has been recommended. The LockCha Tea Shop is a tiny place, but they offer tea tastings and instructed us on brewing techniques and serving traditions.
We tasted a few varieties from a delicate Jasmine to a smoky Pu-ehr, and selected a few to bring home as gifts and for our own stash.
While our smartphones don’t take such great photos in low light, I did want to try and share the night time view from the Kowloon side, which is spectacular.
We’re on our way home now, will have more on our trip and my travel wardrobe recap later this week. Thanks for reading along with our travels!
