Hong Kong seems like it has 3 major things in the city. Malls, skyscrapers, and old, dingy apartment buildings.
After going to the mall on our 2nd day in the city, we headed over to Stanley. Stanley is an area in the southeast of Hong Kong. It’s named after a British Lord, but the local name for the town is Chek Chue which comes from “Bandit’s post”. It is believed that this used to be an area where HK pirates used to hang out. The character that Chow Yun Fat played in Pirates of the Carribean is loosely based on a famous pirate in Stanley.
After Stanley, we headed to Victoria Peak for a grand view of the city lights at sunset. For about $5 (American) we were able to climb to the top of the highest building and take some AMAZING shots of one of the best metropolitan skylines in the world.
We finished off the night with some great dumplings. A good end to another beautiful day in HK.
