my last day in Hong Kong was yesterday. I had a day to kill before my incredibly late flight, and exceedingly sore feet from all that walking the day before.
My top tip for you if you are planning a trip with lots of sightseeing – wear decent walking shoes.
So anyway I needed a rest day yesterday, so after dropping my case at the in town check in – brilliant idea by the way, at central or Kowloon station, i put my hand luggage in left luggage and decided to spend the day sailing. Very easy on the feet.
The trip was a sail to Stanley which used to be a British Garrison, a couple of hours there, and then a sail back. Easy, especially with these lovely loungers on board:
plus a free drink for everybody.
here are some of the views:
I had a super lunch here, at a place called the pickled pelican, which was a pub with a Chinese theme, and they had a really good menu, including pumpkin and quinoa salad with cranberries and goats cheese! perfect if you are coeliac like me.
So all in all, it was a good day. Just the rest day i needed. That would be my next top tip – always plan in a rest day. 🙂
