After the tour we grabbed some lunch at a pizza place (yes, I know, not very Chinese) by the Bruce Lee statue.
The infamous peninsula Hotel is a short stroll from here if you’re feeling flash and want to stop by for a cocktail.
Our plan from here was to go to Temple Street night market via Kowloon Park. Fook Tak Ancient Temple is nearby too but it was closed when we came past.
Kowloon Park was a great resting spot with several ponds, an aviary and a Chinese garden. It also boasts the smallest McDonalds I’ve ever seen, ha-ha. They only serve drinks and we opted for an orange Fanta ice-cream float which was so refreshing in the heat. There is also a Lido (Outdoor pool) in the park. It is 8HKD each, great if you need to cool off. There was also a lot of comic style statues on display there too, I’m not to sure if that was a temporary exhibition or a permanent thing but they were very cool.
We exited the park and continued up Nathan Road towards the market which is on Temple street between Man Ming Lane and Nanking Stand, we started at the furthest end and made our way back down. A lot of the stalls sell the same sorts of things, tourist gifts as expected and the prices have a little wiggle room for negotiation. There is lots of clothing available, gifts, bags, shoes, jade items (though probably not genuine jade). I bought a fan that plugs into my mobile which I was very grateful for in the muggy night air. I purchased some novelty chopsticks too. Mostly I was just browsing.
Once we had finished shopping, we took a taxi back to the harbour to catch the ferry back to Causeway Bay. Due to the unpleasant meal the previous night we decided to go to the restaurant where we had dined on our first night. A part of me wished that we had tried somewhere else as there are most likely so many good places to eat in the city, but we were tired and hungry and just wanted to eat something we knew we would like.
