Hong Kong

My ridiculously fabulous view from my room

The ridiculous view from my room

My first view of the city was from my 16th-floor room at the Shangri-La hotel in Kowloon.  The massive picture window laid the island city right in front of my face and I was drawn to it like a magnet. The poor woman who tried to explain my room amenities must have realized that I was not going to be able to drag my eyes away for that long, no matter how many different light buttons she had to explain. This was, of course, to my detriment later.

My comfortable room (and the desk I have already spent too much time at!) Good thing the view is just a foot away.

The hotel is located on the KOWLOON side, which is across from the Island center of Hong Kong (and why the view is so amazing.)  People compare it to New Jersey or Hoboken given its location and panoramic views of the city skyline.  Luckily, the metro is an easy way to get across but, the STAR FERRY is far more scenic and departs every five minutes, making it the preferable choice for this boat-loving gal.

Looks easy enough right? Am off to check it out. More pix to come
