In pictures

Well, how bloody disorganised am I? It's taken a week but here is a selection of pictures from our recent vacation in Hong Kong.

Of course, for a fish fanatic, no trip to Hong Kong would be complete without a visit to the goldfish market. I don't approve of the way the fish are sold though. Poor things.

 We caught the cable car to Lantau Island to see the big buddha. It worked out quite well because the cable car was shut the following day for 5 months for maintenance so it was a fortuitous decision to go the day that we did.
 I visited Macau for the first time. It was interesting to see the Portuguese influence.
 Also took a ride on the mid level escalator, just for fun.
Naturally, as a tourist, we went on the peak tram up to Victoria Peak. The crowds were horrendous...
...but the view was worth the wait.

I was just thinking about visiting the Peak a couple of nights ago, not that it is on our agenda. I must look at the trip on the net.

Be warned...the queue for the Peak Tram was really bad. We paid for a return trip but ended up catching the taxi back down. I'd imagine that the time of day would be important for wait time going up versus down. I suspect we went at the worst possible time...late afternoon going up and then trying to come back down in the evening.
