Hong Kong does it again
Last week my mom and I went to Hong Kong for a couple of days and had so much fun while we where there. I took so many pictures that I decided to create two separate posts because I really want to share them with you. You might don’t know but Hong Kong has a special place in my heart, I love this city so much and as I said in one of my Instagram pictures “It feels like home” every time I go there.
We arrived in Hong Kong in the late afternoon so we went to our hotel and decided to go out and walk around the area. For our surprise we found a huge market that sold so many things, from electronics to clothes and food. It was full of people and to be honest it was a little overwhelming. We walk around two hours and then we went back to the hotel.
On the next day, which was our first full day in HK, we decided to hop on a bus and go to visit the famous Tian Tan Buddha which is one of the largest seated Buddha statues in the world located in Ngong Ping, Lantau island. We got there and the weather was really good, one of the best from our entire trip, we hop off from the bus and started walking. To actually get to the Big Buddha we had to climb 268 stairs, it was a long way but it was definitely worth it! The view from the top was breath taking, we stayed there for around forty minutes and then decided to visit a monastery that was near there.
After visiting the Big Buddha we took another bus back to the city and as we were getting off from the bus we found this huge mall, of course we had to take a look 🙂 , for our surprise it was an outlet mall. They had everything there, all the brands you could imagine were there, the best part was that the prices where really good. As usual, I went to all the sporty brands and found some really good deals in Adidas I guess I’m starting to like Adidas again…don’t worry Nike is always the first one on my list.
After the mall we went to visit the Avenue of stars which is a famous place in Hong Kong that pays tribute to outstanding professionals in the film industry. The view from there was amazing, the skyline of Hong Kong is definitely one of my favorites, the other one will be The Bund in Shanghai. We waited until the night to see the Symphony of Lights which is the world’s largest permanent light and sound show, it involves more that forty buildings on both sides of the Victoria Harbour, a-ma-zing!!!
Here is my ootd, the weather in Hong Kong was super hot, not as hot as in Taiwan, but it was pretty close I would say. That’s why I decided to wear a top with crochet details with my classic distressed denim shorts and my trusty Nikes.
I hope you like these pictures. After all the craziness of the day we had yummy food for dinner and went back to the hotel. We wanted to rest well for the next day…
Stay tuned for my next post!
