We woke up the next day at around 7am knowing that there is a ferry the leaves Cheung Chau island at 8am and every hour afterwards. We missed the 8am ferry and was shocked when I found out that the next trip to Moi Wu in nearby Lantau Island will be 10:50am. I was starting to worry then but since there's nothing I can do about it, I just took the opportunity to go around and take some pictures of shops.
We boarded the next ferry from Cheung Chau to Mui Wo which is 30 minutes away at the cost of $HK18 and from there took the bus to Ngong Ping for $HK 27.
The road is winding as Ngong Ping is on top of the second tallest peak in Hong Kong.
We were here for a special purpose, that is to see Po Lin Monastery and the Giant Buddha otherwise known as Tian Tan Buddha.
By this time, I was already having 2nd thoughts weather to go to Disneyland or not. From Tung Chung, we could easily take the MTR to Sunny Bay and from there take the Disneyland train. But I heard many feedbacks about Hong Kong Disneyland and many of my friends said it's for kids. For the likes of adults, Hong Kong Ocean Park would suit well.
So goes my last ditch decision to go straight to Admiralty and from there take the bus to Ocean Park. We ended in Central Station after my friend Lerry who lives in Hong Kong texted me of the advisory that Ocean Park was already closed for admission that day due to very long lines. Yeah, yeah, it's lunar new year after all. I already noticed the long lines back in Tung Chung. I never thought this small territory already packed could get more crowded.
Frustrated, we just decided to roam around central and pose for a few photos.
Exhausted, we boarded the bus back to central ferry station. We didn't have much energy left so I didn't even try to convince my wife to stop somewhere for a while and take night shots of some famous landmarks try some restaurants We took the fast craft back to Cheung Chau for $HK 32 each, ate street food and called it a night.
The flight was 8:25 am the next day and comes with it the realization that time was really too short for us to cover Hong Kong. Anyway, we could always go back next time, maybe exclusively for Disneyland and Ocean Park. I really wanna know personally which is better.lol
