Hong Kong Holiday Part 8

After that we were off to the highest point in Hong Kong, Victoria’s Peak. Actually, we didn’t go all the way to the top, only halfway, but still it afforded a great view of the island skyscrapers and Kowloon across the bay. The tour guide also pointed out to us the highest peak on the mountain range in Kowloon, called Lion Rock or See Si San. The peak was made famous in the 70’s in a pop song by Roman Tam about the struggles of the Hong Kong people and the spirit of communality.

We were told the tour buses cannot stay long along that road as the rich people staying there often complained of the noise and pollution.

Coming down to sea level, we made our way to the beautifully named Repulse Bay. It is actually a beach, with a famous Chinese temple at the end of the bay. When we were there construction was ongoing for a massive shopping mall.
