Street scenes along Nathan Street, Kowloon
After dinner we strolled up and down Nathan Street in the heart of the shopping district of Kowloon. Nathan Street is loaded with all types of shops and restaurants ... camera and electronics stores are everywhere as are dress, luggage, souvenir, and anything else you can think of. The neon lights of the stores and over the road light Nathan Street up almost as if it was daytime. After a few minutes we headed back to the hotel to get some much needed rest as we had another busy and full day planned for tomorrow.

which way to go

Cages hung with colorful birds
Early the next morning we took the optional half-day tour to the Hong Kong bird and flower markets. Both were relatively small but interesting. The birds were so beautiful and singing continuously.

Right down the street from the bird market was the Hong Kong flower market. A small version of what we would see in Bangkok (pages to follow) with storefronts full of flowers for sale. It was so small we didn't spend a lot of time there nor take a lot of pictures.
Bunches of flowers for sale in the flower market
After visiting the bird and flower market the bus would take us to a small fishing village out in the New Territories. The New Territories is the land laying between Kowloon and the border of Mainland China. Over the years much of the population of Hong Kong has moved into the New Territories and it's become quite populated. On our previous trips we'd always gone to the New Territories to visit a Hakka village and the border town of Lok Ma Chau overlooking Mainland China. This time we would forego that in favor of this small fishing village. We weren't disappointed at all. Continue to the next page for pictures taken at the small fishing village ...
