Wuhan-3 Gorges Dam

Hong Kong

 

  Here is the Hong Kong itinerary.

We arrived in Hong Kong on Apr. 17, 2000, after flying from Wuhan.

We stayed at the Hotel Miramar on Nathan Road which is a main street with lots of stores and across the street from the Kowloon park.

In some free time, we went to the stores on Nathan Road for shopping, and rode the Star Ferry between Hong Kong and Kowloon Islands.  See the pictures as we rode the funicular to Victoria Peak overlooking the city.  We boarded a junk for a harbor cruise to pass through the famed floating fishing village of Aberdeen.  Also visited was a typical apartment building to visit a family.
