HK-Macau 2013 (Part 3, Stanley | Ding Ding Tram | Tsim Sha Tsui| Rubber Ducky | Golden Bauhinia Square)

Since there’s already a bus stop near our hotel, we don’t need to go Exchange Road Bus Terminus in Central. We had a bit of a hard time finding the bus stop at first, but after some backtracking, it was right where it was supposed to be. We were lucky that we got the front-left upper-deck seats. The view was amazing! Expect tree branches to hit the window though. 😛 The route traverses a mountain-side road overlooking the sea. There’s even a spot where you can see Ocean Park from afar.

Upon arriving in Stanley, we ate lunch in one of the stalls in Stanley Promenade. The food here is not cheap because Stanley is a known weekend getaway for expatriates living in Hong Kong. Afterwards, we just took some photos in the nearby pier and the Murray House.

BBQ Chicken Wings, served a bit on the raw side. We asked them to recook

Philly Cheesesteak, good enough but quite expensive

DING DING TRAM

Forgot to charge my camera overnight, so we had an unplanned trip back to our hotel in Wan Chai. This made our Ding Ding Tram experience quite shorter than originally planned. We would have taken the ride from North Point but even if it was shorter, it’s stiill a fun experience. We didn’t notice we’re already in Sheung Wan. Next time, I want to try a longer ride from Kennedy Town.

The original plan was to go to The Peak after riding the Ding Ding Tram.  We were hoping to get a clear view of Victoria Harbour from The Peak this time around since we saw nothing but fog/clouds when we last went there in 2012. The plan didn’t push through though because it’s already cloudy that afternoon. Instead of going to The Peak, we went straight to Tsim Sha Tsui. There’s a lot of shops around here but since my companion is an H & M addict, we went to Silvercord mall where they have a branch. We also had our dinner at the mall’s foodcourt.

After shopping in Silvercord, we just walked our way to the TST Promenade/Avenue of Stars. This time around we want to get some night shots of the Victoria Harbour. We also saw the giant Rubber Duckky docked right beside the Star Ferry Terminal. For an inanimate object, Rubber Duckky is a superstar! There’s a lot of people trying to take a picture when we got there.

Golden Bauhinia Square

This was an optional stop for us. But since we’re staying in Wan Chai and this place is near the Wan Chai Star Ferry terminal, we opted to go. Took us less than 10 minutes to walk from the terminal to the square. After taking some photos, we walked our way back to the hotel.

That’s all for Part 3. Thanks for Reading!
