The next day
Toppet and I decided to skip Ocean Park. As much as we’d like to see the fishes, dolphins and sea lions, we decided we want to explore the streets and visit the stores we had in mind. So while our friends spent the day at Ocean Park, we had our own schedule for the day. It was an impromptu plan but we managed to squeeze in the places we want to see in our itinerary. There was a lot of walking, but it was worth it. I’d say a pair of Sanuk wont hurt. 😆
- Canton Road
- Gateway mall
- Harbour City
- Lunch at Cafe De Coral
1:00PM – 7:00PM
- Ladies Market
- Central Station
- Chater Garden
- The Peak Tram
- 360 Sky Terrace
Tram to Causeway bay and Times Square
From Tsim Sha Tsui, we proceeded to the nearest Wellcome grocery store to buy pasalubongs. Wellcome is a supermarket similar to SM and Rustan’s but smaller. I did a little research and found one in Hankow Road.
After a little bit of shopping at Wellcome, we went back to our place to drop off the goodies. And now to explore Canton road, a major road in Hong Kong known for its upscale retail shops. I just wanted to see H&M haha. 😆
Next, to the streets of Mongkok (there’s Cotton On and H&M around) and Ladies Market to buy some souvenirs and gifts.
(A) MTR Tsim Sha Tsui Station to (B) Mongkok Station
Ladies Market is located at Tung Choi Street.
Next, from Mongkok station now to Central.
(B) Central MTR station, exit at J2 Charter Garden.
(A) Charter Garden to (B) The Peak tower. There’s a cable car service (runs every 15 mins.) that will take you from Garden Road Central to the Peak Tower.
Next, to Causeway. I forgot how we were able to get on the double decker tram going to Causeway. With signs, map, people to ask around and a little bit of spontaneity you’ll never be lost. 🙂
[mark]Last day[/mark] (June 19, 2012)
Spent the last day with everyone in Canton Road, Harbour City and Ladies Market for our last minute shopping. I contemplated on buying the stuff I was ogling the day before and I finally gave in. Last day really helps. YOLO! You Only Live Once. So therefore buy it! 😆 😈 hahahaha
[mark]At the airport[/mark]
Time flies and now we have to fly back home. We arrived at the airport just in time.
