In the afternoon, we went shopping in this Harbor City. Hong Kong is a shopping paradise, so we enjoyed shopping here. We went to the Causeway Bay. There are a lot of shopping malls here. It is a place that we can buy almost everything. We bought cosmetic without paying tax. After a whole afternoon’s shopping, we got very tired.

In the evening, we had our dinner on the Victoria peak to see the beautiful night scene. We took cable car to the peak, which took about only 7 minutes for 20 Hong Kong dollars. In the cable, we chose right side seats to have a better view. On the Victoria Peak, we viewed the sky scrappers, Causeway Bay, Wan chai, Victoria Harbor and Tsim Sha Tsui, which are all world known sites.

Day 2 Destination:Disneyland

It was a good idea to have a breakfast in DEFA. We took a minibus or the subway to Disneyland at 10 am. We got a map to avoid getting lost in such a big Disneyland. There are 4 themes in Hong Kong Disneyland Park: the Main Street, U.S.A, Adventure World, Fantastic World and Tomorrow World.

We appreciated the typical and traditional American architectures on the Main Street, U.S.A. Classic antique cars attracted us a lot. In the Adventure World, a pilot led us to explore the great nature which is the mysterious and remote scenes of Afican forest and grasslands. The Fantastic World is just like what is in our dreams which full of fairy tales.

We saw beautiful Snow White, adorable Winnie Bear, cute flying elephants and a lot of other cartoon characters, which reminded us our wonderful childhood memories and happiness. In the Tomorrow World, we enjoyed a trip to outer space and explore the endless universe. We had an unforgettable experience until the end of fireworks in the evening.

Useful Tips

1、You’d better buy the attractions tickets online,it’s cheaper and more convenient;
2、It is very convenient to use the octopus card when you take transplantation,and you can buy it at HongKong airport;
3、Remember to take a coat even if you know the temperature. It’s cold if you plan to enjoy the night scenery on Victoria harbor or the Victoria peak;
4、Remember exchange some HKD before going to Hong Kong,and exchange HKD into RMB before back to the mainland. You’d better use all coins up,because the bank do not accept them.
