We arrived very late (1am local time). We pretty much pulled an all-nighter on the airplane. The hotel let us have a late check out which allowed us some relaxation time in HK before we had to navigate the metro and then the train into mainland China.
About 5 minutes from our hotel we stumbled across a gondola ride. What the hey, let’s do it. The ride up over the harbor, forests, and low mountains was mare fun due to the glass bottom in the gondola. The views were great all around.
After a 30 minute ride, there was a giant Buddha, shops, stray dogs, and more. It was a very popular spot for locals as well as large tour groups. The stairs up to the giant Buddha we long for MiMi, but we took a break half-way up.
