The minute we left the airport, I just loved the sight of colored taxis—red, green and blue. Kowloon was our base during our Hong Kong stay and our hotel room had a magnificent view of the Hong Kong skyline (supposedly, the most beautiful in the world). We loved walking in Kowloon, focusing on the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Southern Kowloon. This area has it all—busy streets, small shops, fancy malls, museums, crowded markets, numerous restaurants, neon signs, beautiful waterfront, clock tower and lots and lots of people!
We also traveled by Star Ferry across Victoria Harbor. This inexpensive ride features on several touristic lists such “Things to Do before You Die” and “Top 10 Most Exciting Ferry Rides”, but in my opinion, it is unnecessarily hyped. It is a marvelous ride, no doubt, as you can see the Hong Kong as well as the Kowloon skyline. We also saw another attraction featuring on touristic lists—the Symphony of Lights show—billed by Guinness World Records as the world’s largest permanent light and sound show. It is a light and laser multimedia show featuring buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbor. Rohan just loved it and went nuts taking pictures.
