Kowloon Mosque & Islamic Centre

Kowloon Mosque & Islamic Centre - Best Place to Travel

hong kong's airport is so huge, you sometimes need to take a train from your terminal to the arrival area. the bus to the city has a surveillance camera trained on your stuff. handy, since i was sitting on the upper deck. arrived too early to check in, so after dumping my stuff in the hotel, my first stop was the pmq. it's a neat space with boutiques and artsy shops.


Kowloon Mosque & Islamic Centre

Kowloon Mosque & Islamic Centre, there's even a mini museum with archaeological artifacts of the place it used to be. that's me with the typhoon signal #1 warning hoisted at the pmq. victoria peak is one of those places guidebooks tell you to go check out as a must-see in hong kong. i'm not crazy about it since it's always so crowded,

but since i haven't been there in a decade, i thought i'd do the whole tourist thing, complete with riding the tourist tram up there. i started the next day with walking the length of nathan road from tsim sha tsui to mongkok. lots to see on the way, like this huge mosque. since it was a very long walk, i took a break in this tiny local park. i was quite impressed with myself since there were two subway stops in between tsim sha tsui and mongkok. mongkok was as wild as i remembered. although a decade ago,

i don't recall seeing these amateur singers belting out tunes in the street for tips. i went to stanley beach that afternoon, but returned to mongkok after nightfall. would you believe it, the singers were still at it at night! took a bus to stanley beach after mongkok. this is one of my favorite tourist spots in hongkong. it's not as crowded as victoria park, and you can see nice sunsets over the water. on my last day, i checked out victoria park a nice local park in causeway bay, before checking out of my hotel.

here's some random footage of the subway, trains, buses, and trams in hk from my 3 days there. just threw them in - as transportation is one of my favorite things to shoot in general. i'd recommend just riding around the tram from end to end if you've got nothing to do. it's a nice and cheap way to see hong kong island. the other side, kowloon, has no trams though. there's a huge glass temple to apple in causeway bay with gray market resellers of the iphone 7 parked outside it. i went in early october 2016, when that phone was just newly released. i visited apliu street after lunch

since my flight on my last day wasn't till evening. it's right outside the sham shui po subway stop. this is a street full of really random stuff. prepaid 3g sim cards ith 5, 10, 15 day data packages for various foreign countries that hongkongers are wont to travel to (thailand, japan, korea, etc), fishing equipment, cable wires, plugs, bathroom fixtures, bird cages, and more. this isn't like those markets in mongkok with all the fake gucci and ray bans.

this is real random oddball stuff. i like this strange place though, it's got real character. i end this video journal entry with random food i consumed on this trip. like this delicious milk pudding, delicious shrimp wonton noodles, a huge cold cut sandwich and this... hope you enjoyed this video! thanks for watching!
