Day Three in Hong Kong

Here I am! Hong Kong! This is my first time landing my feet on Hong Kong. It's a vacation trip to Hong Kong and Macau with my mum and my aunt for a week. It started with - we reached Hong Kong on 29 June at late night and the real-fun journey began on the 30th June morning. Just a little info, our hotel was Standford Hillview Hotel located at Knutsford Terrace, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.

Day Three: Sham Shui Po, Prince Edward & Mong Kok

Similarly to Day 2, in Day 3, we planned to make use of our 3 days unlimited MTR ride (we bought MTR Tourist Value Pack - worth HK$300 which includes 2 ways of Airport Express and few promotion coupons), thus, we went to places which are required MTR - Sham Shui Po, Prince Edward & Mong Kok.

1st destination, we went to Sham Shui Po (深水埗). After having our breakfast in Sham Shui Po, we head to the street near by, known as Apliu Street.

Generally, Apliu Street is a street that is full with electrical devices, electronic items, handphones and many more.

Feeling hot? Get one to blow yourself then!

Lost your old remote? Come here for replacement! :P

After walking for about 1 hour, then we took MTR to Prince Edward (太子). We spent most of our time in Prince Edward because lotsa markets and streets are here, such as Flower Market, Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, Goldfish Market and Fa Yuen Street.

After these 2 places, we went to Fa Yuen Street. Fa Yuen Street is a street that has plenty of sport items and bargain-priced trendy fashion clothes and some are as cheap as (erm I forgotten)!

Near by Fa Yuen Street is the Goldfish Market.

Guess what, instead of taking MTR to the next station Mong Kok (旺角), we walked there! Because Fa Yuen Street located in between Prince Edward station and Mong Kok station. Upon reaching Mong Kok station, we then went to Ladies' Market on Tung Choi Street. Uh, it's a street towards heaven for ladies! Nah, just kidding! It's just a name though....

Ladies Market.

Similarly to Temple Street or well known as Night Market @ Jordan, there are lotsa souvenirs can be found. However, in my opinion, Night Market is a better spot for bargain compared to Ladies' Market.

After all these places, my mum and aunt were tired and we went back to our hotel. On our way back, they had their early dinner too! I did not join them for the early dinner because I had my own dinner later and I wanna catch the "A Symphony of Lights", held at the harbour front every day at 8pm for 10 minutes.

Before "A Symphony of Lights" begin.

More than 40 buildings take part to create an all-round spectacle of coloured lights and laser beams by following the rhythm of the theme song. Tell you what, the light performance is awesome!

*P.S: I will upload more photos of "A Symphony of Lights" later, plus some videos perhaps.

After enjoyed the 10 minutes of spectacular "A Symphony of Lights", I stopped by Heritage 1881 for some photo shoot. Gosh, a lovely place for couple shoot I would say!

Guess I'm lucky to see that "3 heads 6 arms" was displaying outside of Heritage 1881.

Hey, guess what I saw?!
