HKTales: Around the City

After we went to Kowloon to have brunch in Kam Wah Cafe, we decided to tour the city. But of course, the number one tourist spot that we must go to is to The Peak Tram. But before we reached Garden Road, Central, where it is located. We kind of got lost when we came out of the MTR Central Station c/o our Waze.

While walking throught the streets of Central HK (Queen’s Road!), where we passed by a lot of signature branded shops, parks (where I heard most OFWs hang out during their day off), we chanced upon a nice alley way, which is actually a “spot” called the Dundell Street.
DSCF5174The Dundell Street Steps and Gas Lamps, are the last four gas lights in Hong Kong. The gas lamps are situated on top of the steps and it was what lit HK before the neon lights were invented.
DSCF5190Where you can find it: MTR Central Station, Exit D1. Walk through Pedder Street to Queen’s Road Central, then turn left to Duddell Street.

After our adventure in The Peak, we rode a bus, which is just outside the building going to Star Ferry (HK$4 for adult and HK$2 for child). Right before we rode the Star Ferry, the HK Observation Wheel is in our view, so we took pictures first.

From Central Pier No 7, we rode a ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui.
In Tsim Sha Tsui Harbourfront, the Symphony of Lights was almost starting so we stayed by the harbourfront and watched for a few minutes. I’m not sure if that’s what we should expect but I kind of didn’t enjoy what I saw compare to other pictures that I saw online.
And of course, the famouse Clock Tower in Tsim Sha Tsui.
