China 2016 – Day 5 – Hong Kong – Part 3 – 16 November 2016

Tsim Sha Tsui

I got off the ferry at Tsim Sha Tsui, made my way to the TST metro station, and got a bit lost – it’s a rather large station!  I basically tried to stay underground out of the heat of the day.

I walked along Nathan Road for a bit, then saw the signs to Kowloon Park.

Kowloon Park

This was a bit of an oasis in the hustle and bustle of Kowloon.

I had my lunch looking at a fountain.

I wandered around and looked at the sculptures, bridges and views.

Don’t put anything in the fountain or risk going to jail!

There was also a round flower bed with roses in bloom.

There were people doing tai chi (at least I presume that’s what it was – please let me know if you know differently).

I then headed down Austin Road to the station, where I got a train to Prince Edward Station.

Mong Kok

I love Mong Kok….

Flower Market

I came here in the morning the day before, but everything was still closed, so I hoped coming in the afternoon would be better. It was! The shops were all open, and there were so many flowers to be bought. I took hundreds of flower photos!

Fa Yuen Street

I made my way to the markets in Fa Yuen Street. They were fairly similar to the Temple Street Markets I had been at the night before.
