Our short stay in HONGKONG

It was just a short flight from Manila to Hongkong, about two hours, compare to our travel from the province to Manila which was 7 hours with the car and straight to the airport. We were able to booked our flight very early in the morning so we could travel at night otherwise traveling during day time will take a lot longer. It was around 4AM when we reached the airport and went and checked in at once as our flight leave at 6AM. When we arrived in Hongkong we went straight to our,
hotel and took a shower before we went and meet a couple of friends for lunch. After lunch, Kees took the kids back to the hotel as they don't feel well and wanted to take a nap. I stayed behind for a couple of hours and had a look in a few shopping malls but it was too busy as it was sunday, so we went to a coffee bar and catch up on news.

The next day we went to Hongkong Disneyland. It was raining and a bit dark when we left the hotel but when we reach the park it started to clear up and at midday the sun turns up. It was smaller than what we had expected but it was a nice experience especially the Parade.

On our third day, we walked to the harbour which was nearby our hotel but we've taken the long route as we were not that familiar anymore, kids wasn't happy with the walked!! After lunch, we went shopping for clothes for the kids and before we know it we have to picked our luggage and headed to the airport.
Well, this will be the last for a while visiting Hongkong. We've passed by here two years ago too on the way back to Holland, we would like to visit other places too like Singapore but the children wanted to go to Disneyland so that's why we came back.
