Hong Kong - Day 3

On our third day in Hong Kong, we checked out of our hotel and hopped on the MTR to go wander the city. Our first stop was the famous Ladies Market. This stretch of road is about three blocks long and is full of small shops selling random crap... From craft supplies to knock off watches, you can get just about anything. We were after a Mahjong board for Mushna's Dad. After wandering around for a little while, Mushna finally bought one... The big, heavy one. I gave in and bought a backpack to carry it around in, too. The funnest thing about the Ladies Market was haggling prices with the street venders. I've never really tried it before, so it was a lot of fun.

After the Ladies Market, we headed down to the Nan Lian Garden. This is a garden in the center of the city.

Before leaving Hong Kong, I really wanted to get out to get some shots of the streets at night.

That ended our tour of Hong Kong and Macau. We really enjoyed our time there. I would love to go back at some point, but I also really want to visit some other Asian countries and cities, too, so we'll see.

To end, here are a few shots of the hotel lobby we stayed in:
