It was hot, humid and sunny. I was sweating by 9am…. It got to 31C with a heat index of 34.4C.
My hotel was in Sheung Wan, in an area known as the dried seafood street. Walking on my first morning to the station to get my octopus card I was bombarded by the smell of dried seafood. Needless to say, I didn’t feel like breakfast!
I took the star ferry across the harbour then got on a train to Prince Edward station. I planned on visiting the Flower Market, but it was too early and they hadn’t opened.
I then caught the train to Diamond Hill to visit the Chi Lin Nunnery, and found the Nan Lian Garden as well. I tried to stay in the shade as much as possible as I felt like I was melting.
I then hung out in an air-conditioned shopping mall for a while to cool down. I decided to head back to the hotel for the main heat of the day for a nana-nap.
Temple Street Markets – Jordan
I had heard of these markets and just had to visit. They really reminded me of any SE Asian market selling knock-off goods and street food.
No wonder my feet were sore by the time I got to bed!
