 Hong Kong

First glimpse of Hong Kong through the haze - taken from the VIP lounge on the catamaran (I sneaked in, it was empty!).

'Our' cat - the 'Hai Chi' berthed at the ferry terminal in Hong Kong.

Looking up at our hotel from Kowloon Park - note the Scouts Fleur-de-lis.

The peace and tranquility of the Park - amidst the constant bustle of Kowloon.

Always busy Nathan Road.

Front view of our hotel - all decked out ready for Christmas.

Our first foray out - to the waterfront for the light show.

By the time I got my camera settings sorted, I was too late for the laser show.....

... but I did manage to catch this splendid junk - Red Sails in the Sunset ??

Christmas lights along the shopping arcade on Nathan road as we walked back to the hotel.

View from our hotel window - with Kowloon Park in the foreground.
