Hong Kong Photo Diary – Part 3

Here is the last installment of my Hong Kong holiday photo diary. I found it hard to choose which photos to include, having taken so many, but eventually narrowed it down to this selection.

A highlight of our trip was going to see the Big Buddha statue and Po Lin Monastery at Ngong Ping on Lantau Island. The huge bronze Buddha faces North, watching over mainland China and sits atop a lotus throne on a platform that can be reached by climbing 268 steps. The 25 minute cable car journey to get to the village where he sits meant we could take in some amazing views of the mountains and surrounding countryside. If you have a spare afternoon it is definitely worth the journey!

I have also included some shots of me in various different areas of the city in order to show you what I wore throughout the week. I found it was hard to look at all good whilst sweating from every pore on my body due to the crazy humidity and temperatures. I lost count of the amount of times I had to re-apply my sun cream each day!

I hope you like the last of my Hong Kong posts. I’ve really enjoyed looking through the photos and remembering everything we did. It’s left me wishing I could do it all over again.

From now on my posts won’t feature quite such exotic scenery unfortunately – autumnal Edinburgh is the best I can do!
