Hong Kong Trip 2010: Day 1 & 2

December 22 - 27, 2010

My second time to visit HK. We left Manila past midnight already via Cebu Pacific flight to HongKong. The flight was delayed 2 hours for some reasons which was ruined our plan that night. We arrived HK around 4am already. Supposedly, we'd exchange a few US dollar to HK dollar in the airport to buy Octopus cards. Unfortunately, shops were closed by past midnight. We just decided to take the bus N21 to our hostel. We just slept for barely 2 hours in the hostel, which is not a bad thing because we just paid a small amount for our stay. In the early morning, we had our breakfast at Mcdonald's just located a few steps from our hostel then we travelled by taxi to Lantau Island where we will transfer to Disneyland Hollywood hotel. We opted to travel by taxi since we had big luggages to carry and there were 6 of us. So 2 taxis were enough. By the time we arrived, it was not yet checked in time so we just left our luggages at the lobby. Our plan for the day was to visit Ngong Ping village. We then bought Octopus cards at the Disney MTR station. From there, we rode the MTR from Disneyland to Sunny Bay and interchanged at the Tung Chung line. We entered the CityGate Outlet store just and had lunch at the Food Republic. At around 12noon, we rode the escalator going to the cable car station. The queue for the ride was so long, but good thing my mother booked our tickets online so minus the hassle of lining up. It was really a straight walk going up there while others barely moved on their feet. Hay! So the ride was about 25 minutes overlooking the beautiful place. We also enjoyed the sights in the Ngong Ping Village. The weather was fine too. It was cold about 15 degrees yet the sun was shining through which was perfect because I didn't sweat eventhough we walked and walked. They also had Christmas decorations with matching snow, well artificial only but it was still cute. We really had a great time taking pictures. We went back to Disneyland hotel through the same route. We rested for 2 hours and then went inside the themepark by night time. Was able to catch the Procession of toys and later ended the night watching the spectacular fireworks display.
