If you are an Indian and don’t like Chinese Vegetarian, make sure you get to the Indian Restaurants on time. They close on quite early, except in the food court in Venetian. Next day we took a half day city tour. We missed the bunjee jumping (regret not doing it, as we were short of time; did skywalk- was fun). In the evening we left for HK.

hills. You can skip the Ferry ride, it’s not worth the time and money. We ended
the day taking the rides and enjoying shows – dolphin show was good, at the
Next day we started with
We hurried on to the
It’s advisable to leave for the island early morning from the city as there are many amazing landmarks besides the monastery that are worth visiting. We were quite late but were gifted with rain and enjoyed every bit of walk. Try the distinct flavored chai you get right on the entrance.
