My second day in Hong Kong began with a boat ride across the Hong Kong harbor. We got off the boat and headed to Hong Kong Park, a beautiful space in the heart of the city.
Our next stop was Nan Lian Garden, a classical Chinese garden near Chi Lin Nunnery. This was an absolutely gorgeous spot.
From the garden, we made our way to the Chi Lin Nunnery, which was founded in the early twentieth century and built following the style of Tang Dynasty traditional Chinese architecture. It was another beautiful place.
From there it was on to Hong Kong’s most famous temple, the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple. The temple is dedicated to Wong Tai Sin, a popular Chinese deity.
On the evening of our second day, we went to the Avenue of Stars, which was packed with people eager to see Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights. I was expecting more from the show, but the view of the skyline was excellent. The avenue itself honors celebrities of the Hong Kong film industry.
Near the Avenue of Stars is the famous clock tower of Hong Kong. This tower dates from the early twentieth century.
