In my opinion, the weather in HongKong is hotter than the hottest place in the Philippines. The temparature is around 33 degrees. The heat is scary esp to those who are used to cold weathers. But during our stay, there was a time when it was raining.
August is somewhat a rainy season in HongKong according to my relative who works there and to accuweather/google.
Anyway, the rain did not stop us to venture HongKong.
Buildings and more buildings everywhere. Guess what? They do not experience earthquake in HK according to my Tita and Idk why.
We first ventured Mid levels and it is said as the longest escalator in the world. Its not a single escalator but it is a combination of escalators and some walkway. There are also shops beside the escalator. But after the last escalator, you need to use the stairs or walk tons to go back to Central.
I didn’t research much about the famous foodchains in HK but what I love about their fastfood restaurants is that they remove sold and unavailable items. Most fastfood chains are self-service and crew moves fast and efficient.
Midlevels and the Observation Wheel are located at the other Island of HongKong. After strolling around Central, we decided to try their ferry. It’s a 5 minute ride from Central to Kowloon side where we ate staying. The ferry costs around $3.10.
These are the busy streets of HongKong at night.
Travelling requires walking, getting home late and waking up early but everything is worth it in the end. It always amaze me to learn and observe the extraordinary the unusual. That is my motivation to travel. To have iridescent discoveries, learn from it, grow and feel more alive than ever.
