Hong Kong Trip 2009 – Day One

Super-overdue holiday pictures (October last year). Anyway better be late than never.

Upon arrival via JetStar, they purchased the Airport Express Tourist Octopus at the Chek Lap Kok Airport. The card allows three days of unlimited rides on the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) and includes a HK$50 refundable deposit.

After checking into the Evergreen Hotel at Woo Sung Street in Kowloon (just one street away from the famed Temple Street) they grabbed a quick lunch at the nearby Tao Li Yuen (桃李園茶餐廳). Condition of the hotel is sllightly below average, but the location is superb.
