On first full day I did the touristy thing and took a tram ride up to the Peak and then joined all the Chinese keep fit and dog walkers on the long walk down. Th
e sun actually brook through for a while and allowed a lovely viewing of the botanical garden and Battery Point on the way down. I even managed to continue through the longest escalator route to central. Using the steps as the escalator routes uphill. Then took the Star Ferry to Kowloon and then back to Wan Chai. Walked along region of Causeway taking in some noodles before a welcome return to bed.

On second day took a small bus to Stanley and the market. I have to say, I was drawn more to the walks and the Military Cemetery rather than the market. Most of the day dodging the storms. They have their own Tin Hau Temple, with a festival and dragon dancing on the day.
