Crash Transit in Hong Kong

SAMSUNG CSC

 

I have been into so many short transit, crash city tour program, but this transit to Hong Kong, back in November 2013 was probably one of the craziest program I ever arranged. How could this be?

I landed at Hong Kong International Airport about 11pm from Taipei and my onward flight would be 5pm the following day. Arrived at InnSight (a budget hotel located on 9 Lock Road, Tsim Sha Shui, just next to Tsim Sha Shui MTR Station) past midnight, had a quick sleep, woke up for Fajr prayer, and checked-out at 6:30am. I was ready to hit the road just before sunrise.

And here what I have done: walked back to Avenue of Stars, took Star Ferry from Tsim Sha Shui to Hong Kong Central, walked around the city concrete forest, took a taxi to The Peak, rode The Peak Tram down the hill, took a tram to Central – Mid Level Elevator, then to Man Mo Temple.

After a stint shopping, I went to Kowloon Mosque for Friday prayer then to In’s Point (Yau MaTei MTR) for Lego stores then finally catched a taxi back to airport. Fiuuuh…
