|*| We stayed at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong (snazzypants, but we found a certificate online that gave us a great rate) We had great views overlooking Victoria harbor and into Kowloon
|Kowloon across the harbor|
|rough monday morning|
|*| Wandering the streets of HKG without a plan is both overwhelming and exhilarating.
Make sure to check out the parks you stumble on!
|*| Take the Peak Tram up to the top of Hong Kong island for some amazing views
of the urban landscape
|*| If you're starting to get claustrophobic in the city, spend the morning
visiting Big Buddha and the Po Lin Monastery (you can grab lunch here too!)
|*| After you visit the Big Buddha, do some shopping at the nearby Ngong Ping Village (we picked up a great chopstick set). If you're looking for a fun way to get back to the city,
take the glass bottom cable car!
|yes, I had too much fun in this thing|
|*| And lastly, make sure you get a great spot for the evening Symphony of lights. 40+ buildings on both sides of the harbor light up synchronization with the music and it's a fantastic show :)
