6 bucks for three adults?! A coke at the convenience store costs more than that!
After a not so long discussion whether it was expensive or not, we decided not to swim and pay the very (not) expensive fare.
Ok, so Kowloon is famous for it's mix of old and new buildings since after
World War II Kowloon mostly was slum and a place for refugees from mainland China, which is not the case anymore.
We went up in a twenty something floors shopping center called "The One" and I could see the difference between old and new.
Another example of Kowloon's history. This was the last photo I took before realizing that I had no more storage space.
Luckily, there was a camera store around the corner so I could get another SD card.
This place looks almost as old as my entire ancestry. I wonder if the business is good.
I got laughed at for shooting a garbage ship. But the ship passed through the main canal between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon.
Don't you think that is a little bit wierd?!
After walking around Kowloon for some time, we went back to the pier area and found Avenue of Stars, (the HK version of Hollywoods Walk of Fame).
Then I saw this beauty! With red sails and something that looked like a housing area, only to realized it was a motorboat... Anyway, the boat gave
a nice traditional touch to an otherwise very modern city.
I like Chinese and Hong Kong cinema, so the Avenue of Stars was very enjoyable. And of course it had my favourite, Jet Li!
The Avenue of Stars wouldn't be anything without the legend, Bruce Lee! This statue was by far the most popular thing
on the Avenue of Stars.
Symphony of Lights, a must-see considered by many. Back at the Kowloon pier we found advertisements about ferry tours
and one of them included the Symphony of Lights. Good idea, we thought, so we got three tickets (HKD 187 per head)
and got on the ferry. For some reason I thought it would include fireworks, so I was a little bit disappointed. It was pretty nice though,
buildings lit up in sync with music and since we were on a ferry it felt like we had VIP seats.
I never figured out what this building was, but it looks like the designer borrowed some from the opera house in Sydney.
Almost at the end of the tour. On the left is the old Railway Clock Tower, and the big chunk of concrete on the right
side is the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, which looked a lot worse during the day, haha.
