Hong kong

I went to Hong Kong and had a fun time. I went in February. I thought it was going to be nice and warm, but it was quite cold. Hong kong is eight hours ahead of the UK. I must say that I was quite tired on the first few days. We only went there for six days.

Eu foi a Hong Kong e foi super interessante. Fui no fevereiro. Pensava que ia estar calor, mais estava frio. Hong Kong esta a 8hrs a frente do Reino Unido. Eu confesso que estava cansado nos primeiros dias. So ficamos la por seis dias.

I stayed on Hong Kong Island, which is quite busy with lots of shops and restaurants. The building are so high, sometimes you don’t even notice the sky. It’s easy to move around with the metro system.

Eu fiquei na Ilha de Hong Kong, que e super agitada, com muitos restaurantes. Os prédios sao tão altos as vezes você nem nota o céu. Muito fácil de se locomover com o sistema de metrô.

You must take the Star Ferry and cross to Kowloon which is on mainland China. You will have very pretty views of the bay, especially if you go in the evening.

Você tem que pegar o star ferry e atravessar a baía to Kowloon, que fica na no continente chines. Você terá vistas muito bonita, principalmente a noite.

Crossing the bay to the mainland. Ian and I having a nice time. It was quite a grey day, but we enjoyed it. You can get a Hong Kong Pass that you can use on the boats, trains and metro, you just have to add on credit. Super easy.

Atravessando a baia para o continente. Eu e Ian curtindo o tempo. Estava um dia muito cinzento, mais foi legal. Voce pode pegar um o Hong Kong passe e usalo nos barcos, metrô,  so tem que coloca credito. Muito facil.

On the mainland now, just by the ferry port. No continente agora, perto do porto dos ferries.

At Victoria Park there are amazing views of the city. You can catch the tram up, but go quite early as it gets really busy with tourist.

No Victoria Pick. Vistas deslumbrante da cidade. Você pode pegar o bondinho, mais vá cedo pois fica cheio com os toristar.

Man mo temple in Hong Kong. One of Hong Kong’s oldest temples and a declared monument, atmospheric Man Mo Temple is dedicated to the gods of literature (‘Man’), holding a writing brush, and of war (‘Mo’), wielding a sword. Built in 1847 during the Qing dynasty by wealthy Chinese merchants, it was, besides a place of worship, a court of arbitration for local disputes when trust was thin between the Chinese and the colonialists.

You can do a side trip to Lantau island and see the big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha). You can take the metro all the way there, then you take a cable-car to the statue.

Tian Tan Buddha, also known as the Big Buddha, is a large bronze statue of Buddha Shakyamuni, completed in 1993, and located at Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, in Hong Kong.
