After resting for long hours it’s time to travel and explore tourist spots again.
We ate Thai food at a small restaurant near the hotel. Then, we took the way going to the underpass to reach the bus stop and travel to the Prince Edward MTR Station .
Through Te Veck’s navigation, we reached the Tung Chung station where we found the City Gate Outlets mall.
There we boarded a Ngong Ping 360 degrees cable car (another milestone) and reached Lantau island. On our way to the island, there were Lord of the Rings-like views and scenery :), also saw the airport and at the distance I also saw other cities.
We also had the opportunity to taste their native delicacies: soya soup, fish ball, dumplings and the sweet and spicy rice noodle rolls.

Before the day ends, our next goal was to visit Victoria Harbor and see the Avenue of Stars.We had fun taking pictures, saw The Peak at the horizon, and of course the lights of the buildings along the harbor. There were floating restaurants and we’ve seen a lot of tourists just enjoying the view and the cool breeze.
Then came the Symphony of lights – I was really happy to experience the play of lights and the music from the orchestra. It was relaxing for me and its the perfect way of ending a day of walking and exploring different places.
Hours of walking and queuing left us tired for the day but instead of directly gong back to our hotel, we decided to visit their night market and buy “pasalubong” for our loved ones. We also found a small Pinoy restaurant and which served “tocilog”, “tapsilog” and “chicksilog” at the Jordan station in Kowloon.
Since somehow we got used to looking at maps, we were able to find our bus stop and reached the hotel to rest.
Tomorrow I’ll be living a childhood dream :).
