Two years ago we flew through Hong Kong on our way to Malaysia and that one brief glimse was enough to convince us that we wanted to have a closer look. Today we got that chance. True it wasn’t the most favourable time of day: we arrived in Hong Kong at midnight, and our flight leaves shortly now at noon. But we did find a nice little hotel in the Wan Chi district at a reasonable rate, and after coffee and a muffin negotiated with a very nice cabbie for a one hour tour that took in some of the sights such as Victoria Peak and Recluse Bay. This is enough to ensure that we simply must get back for a a more extended say. Sorry we can’t post a picture now as the airport wifi is slow. We’ll try again in Vancouver.
