Hong Kong ~ 19 Sept 2007

Oh yeah… Disneyland Day. We had simple breakfast in the hostel before we start our day. We bought the Disneyland Ticket (HKD295) from the hostel so that we will be able to skip the long queue @ Disneyland.

Disneyland Ticket

We decided to get the MRT 1-day pass which cost HKD50 where this ticket allowed unlimited rides on main urban lines for a single day. From Mongkok(旺角) station, we took the Tsuen Wan line to Lai King (荔景) & transit to Tung Chung Line to Sunny Bay (欣澳) Station. At Sunny Bay MTR station, we took the exclusive Disneyland Resort line (迪士尼綫) to Disneyland Resort Station. This monorial has unique Mickey Mouse-shaped windows & hand straps adorn Disney Resort Liners, which each sport a different color on the nose and sides.

Here we reached the main entrance of Disneyland. 🙂

Here you can see a lot of disney characters coming to life.. yeah.. of course we need to queue up for the photo shooting. We met up with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Goofy, Winnie the Pooh, Chip & Dale.. (We didn’t get the chance to meet up with donald duck. 🙁 ).

We passed by Main Street, USA to our first stop in disneyland ~ Fantasyland. Here you will see the Sleeping Beauty Castle which is a trademark of disneyland (as shown in pic below). This castle is actually available in all the Disneyland. 🙂

After that, we went to Adventureland, then Tomorrowland. We enjoyed our lunch @ one of the restaurant.

We back to Main Street USA before we left Disneyland to grab some souvenir.

We left Disneyland around 5pm and proceeded to Lantau Island(大屿山). Lantau Island is actually our initial plan after Disneyland. Thus, we took Disneyland resort line back to Sunny Bay & proceeded to Tung Chung via Tung Chung Line. The time we reached Tung Chung is already 6pm where the last bus is actually 5pm. Thus, we change our plan immediately. We shopped for a while in Citygate Outlets Shopping Center.

If you are into name brands, you must check out this shopping center in Tung Chung. There are 3 floors of outlet shops – mainly sports wear and other clothing. If only your spouse is a fan, worry not, there are a couple of coffee shops for you to park yourself with a book to watch the bags! There’s also a nice food court (Food Republic) to sample some cuisines where we had our dinner there.

After that, we took Tung Chung Line to Central (中环)Station & proceeded to Lan Kwai Fong(兰桂坊). hehe… we lost somewhere here.. 😛 Lan Kwai Fong is perhaps Hong Kong’s most popular and well known area for a night out. It is now a popular expatriate haunt in Hong Kong for drinking, clubbing and dining. The street Lan Kwai Fong is an L-shape with two ends joining with D’Aguilar Street. We take a break @ one of the bar. 🙂

We end our day @ Temple Street (庙街) or sometimes known as Men’s Street. We took Tsuen Wan Line from Central to Yao Ma Tei(油麻地) Station. Temple Street located in the areas of Jordan and Yau Ma Tei in Kowloon, Hong Kong. This street is well known for its night market and the busiest flea market at night in the territory. The night market is in the Yau Ma Tei, Jordan areas of the street and not the Mong Kok area of the street. Popular with both tourists and locals alike in the evening, it is common to see the place crowded at dusk. It sells cheap merchandise and food items.
