Victoria Peak

I have been meaning to write this post ever since Charlie from PODcast shared her stunning photo's of Victoria Peak, Hong Kong. My husband and I also went to Victoria Peak at the end of our Honeymoon. Let's just say the weather wasn't quite as kind. Here is the view we had at Victoria Peak.

We stayed in Hong Kong for 2 night and went through 4 umbellas! We weren't stopped by the weather though. We went out on a junk.

We took a trip on the Star Ferry. Apparently this is meant to be romantic. I wasn't convinced.

We also got to see a very large Buddha. The World's largest seated Buddha to be precise.

After visiting Singapore, Hong Kong was very different and not quite what I had expected, well except for the high rise buildings and traffic.

    Somewhere I have never been, but one day in my retirement I'd love to go, it looks like an amazing experience.

    I'm glad I went but I wouldn't rush to go back - maybe it's was the weather that made me think like that. Singapore, however, is on my list to revisit.

  3. What and awesome post Louise and oh my the weather wasn't kind! That first photo is quite entertaining though, well done holding onto that brolly! Sounds like it was a good trip, great photos. Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory
