The Hong Kong Blog Entry: A Museum and Some of the Sights

Hong Kong Museum of History

Who goes to Hong Kong and goes to a museum? Yeah, we do. Hahaha. πŸ™‚

Being the culture geeks that we are, we spent an afternoon in the Hong Kong Museum of History, located in Tsim Sha Tsui. They have quite an impressive display of Hong Kong’s history, actually. It started with the geological formation of Hong Kong and its surrounding islands (they even have a legit dragon egg on display!) to its early settlers (three different Chinese ethnic groups!), to the British occupation, to Hong Kong Cinema (which I totally enjoyed!)

Avenue of the Stars

Because we were already in the area, we decided to check out the Avenue of the Stars and just people watch. There were so many people, it was so hard to take picturesΒ with the Bruce Lee statue! Haha. But I totally enjoyed this part of the trip because we got to get some downtime. You know, just sitting on a bench watching the boats float around, and watching (and judging hahaha) people.. yeah, this is really something I like doing when I travel. πŸ™‚

We also got to catch the Symphony of Lights, which was kind of underwhelming, since not all the buildings participated. It was much better years ago when I saw it first.

Victoria PeakΒ 

I had never been to Victoria Peak so I was also especially excited to see this one. We rode the Peak Tram (which was super hard to find haha) to the Peak and hung out there a bit. Because of the rainy weather, it was cold and foggy all over, which of course I liked. πŸ™‚
