2nd November 2012 Hong Kong

0630 hrs entering Hong Kong harbour at sunrise.
A few Black kites present as was Chinese Egret in flight,had breakfast on our balcony
before our tour of Hong Kong.
We took a tram ride to Victoria peak to marvel at the panoramic view of the island.
harbour and Kowloon peninsula a few species of bird were present mostly red whiskered bulbuls.
Scenic views from here was superb that did not last long enough.

Next up Aberdeen village,home to thousands of water people who live aboard junks and sampans.
We boarded a Sampan for a short tour of the inner harbour before stepping aboard the famous floating restaurant for the legendary dimsun.
Then it was Stanley market and the Star ferry across Victoria harbour.
That evening a laser show with its bright lights.Captain Dino Sangani had got permission to traverse
the inner harbour,so we could see this spectacular laser show.
We carefully navigated out of the busy waters of Hong Kong we proceeded on North easterly course
paralleling the coast of China  through the South China sea.Late in the evening we will approach the
Taiwan states.
