#420 Postcard from Hong Kong
We arrived in Hong Kong on 2 September 2012 around 1:00 pm with Cathay Pacific. We took the airport express train to Kowloon and then took the free shuttle bus to hotel. At about 6:00 pm in the evening, we went to Victoria Peak using the tram. It’s very similar to the old tram in Penang Hill, Malaysia. We spent the next day at Ocean Park Hong Kong, and returned to hotel around 6:00 pm. That evening, Aiman was having a fever so he stayed at hotel with mom; but I decided to go and try the Star ferry cruise with Maryam! We arrived at Kowloon Pier at 7:45 pm but we missed the 8:00 pm ferry trip! I decided to wait and take the 9:00 pm trip and Maryam agreed. At 8:00 pm, we watched the light and sound show from Kowloon Public Pier. After the show, I bought some postcards while waiting for our 9:00 pm trip.
This postcard shows the Star Ferry Pier at Kowloon Jetty in Tsim Sha Tsui at night.
This is the back of the postcard. The postmark date is 5 September 2012. There were so many people coming out from the 8:00 pm trip, but for the 9:00 pm trip there were less than 10 people!!! So basically Maryam and me got the chance to move and change places as much as we like! The cruise was fantastic. We got complimentary drinks and cakes from a small counter on the upper deck. The benches on the deck are also similar to Penang ferry in Malaysia.
