DAY 2 HONGKONG NGONG PING
|Hongkong Observatory Wheel|
|Tian Tan Buddha/Big Buddha|
We Had breakfast at Eco tree café. Left by MTR to Central and then to Ngong ping.There in the station we bought the sim card in a super market and also Subway sandwich from the subway store.
There while waiting in queue to buy the cable car ticket, a sales lady was selling package tours and we felt it was great, so took the package tour. Package tour Ngong Ping 360 includes Cable car(2 ways), Bus ride to Tai o fishing Village(both ways) , boat ride at Tai Po, Guide services(Po Lin Monastery, Buddha), 1 free magnet( for filling the feedback form),speed queue for the cable car both ways. The cable car queue was too long and if not for the fast lane , we would have spent around 2-3 hours of our trip just standing in queue(it was a Sunday). The cable car ride was too long and really enjoyed all the views. We got to see a free Kung Fu street play on entering Ngong Ping Vilage.Then many places to click photos. Then we went for the tour. After the tour ended, we had our subway sandwiches, went inside monastery and climbed the Buddha steps. Then we clicked more photos and went for cable car. We missed few shows there –the Wisdom Path and In The Shadow of Buddha walks and few more as we wanted to return back and also the shows were too pricey for 10 mins duration.
From here we left to Central station and walked towards the Observatory Wheel. We bought tickets and had a ride on the wheel enjoying the views from the top. You can see the music and light show at the harbor from here too. We walked and returned to the station.
We left for Tsim sha shui and searched Sangeetha Indian restaurant today. After long walking we found it and had dinner .It is in the building Wings On Plaza. Close to P1 exit of Tsim sha Shui East MTR STATION. Figuring out the exits in each mtr station is very important, if we need to avoid unnecessary walking. We learnt the exits after 2-3 days. We can walk to east Tsim sha shui station from Tsim sha shui station without coming out of the mtr station. Walking on the road seems quite far, also because we have walkways in the mtr station.
