Hong Kong: Kowloon

After a morning in Stanley, we wandered to Kowloon for the remainder of the day.  Our first stop, high tea at the Peninsula Hotel.


Tea service starts at 2pm but following the advice of other travelers, we arrived around 1:30pm. After a short 15 minute wait, we were seated. Fellow diners who arrived after 2pm were treated to a wait of over an hour. While the tea was delicious, I'm pretty sure my feelings towards it would have soured had we needed to wait that long for a table. 




After filling out bellies with scones and finger sandwiches we retired to our hotel for a short rest. Then it was back to Kowloon to check out the Temple Street night market, a colorful street fair full of food and wares being peddled by locals.


After exploring the night market, we made our way to Aqua for dinner, drinks, and incredible views of Hong Kong.


We capped off the night with a ride across the harbor on the iconic Star Ferry. And with that, we bid farewell to  a fabulous few days in Hong Kong.
