Sec­ond day was the day we explore Kowloon area. A city of mod­ern and old co-existed.

Nathan Road, Mong Kok.

We went to three neigh­bour­hoods — Mong Kok, Sham Sui Po and Tsim Sha Tsui.

Day 2 — Explor­ing Kowloon area.

Mong Kok

First stop of the day, Mong Kok, Hong Kong ver­sion of our Pudu.

Ladies street, Mong Kok.

Just a few blocks away from Mong Kok sta­tion, you will find all the famous streets like Ladies Street, Gold­fish Street, Flower Street and Tem­ple Street. We reached there in the morn­ing and too bad most of the stalls not yet open until 4 PM.

So we went to McDonald’s for break­fast and did what most Malaysians who came to Hong Kong did — eat­ing their pork burger.

Once I had my first bite, I must say that the taste is just… the same! I was like, what’s with all the fuse about the pork burger? Can’t even tell the dif­fer­ence. Did I miss any­thing or what?

Sham Shui Po

Okay let’s move on. We then hopped onto the train and make a stop at Sham Shui Po.

Sham Shui Po is the place where you can find all things related to com­put­ers, mobile phones and cameras.

And I left the place with a new “Crum­pler 6 Mil­lion Dol­lar Home” cam­era bag. Happy me.

Tsim Tsa Tsui

Next sta­tion, Tsim Tsa Tsui — the neigh­bour­hood in the far south of Kowloon. It’s a place filled with sky­scrap­ers, shop­ping malls and high-end con­sumer prod­ucts like LV, Gucci and Prada.

Shopper’s par­adise, Tsim Sha Tsui.

It was so big with so many things to see and buy we decided to come back here again to shop till we drop.

Avenue of Stars

Then we walked towards the sea­side to where the Avenue of Stars is located.

Avenue of Stars.

It’s the place where you can see the entire view of Hong Kong Island.

And here you will be able to find all the hand­prints of Hong Kong famous artists.

Cen­tral cityscape night view.

And every night 8PM sharp, there will be a syn­chro­nised light show — A Sym­phony of Lights — where more than 40 build­ings will have lights chore­o­graphed to the music play­ing at the Avenue of Stars.

Impres­sive as it sounds, the show itself was a big dis­ap­point­ment. The lights weren’t that spec­tac­u­lar and the music sounds like MIDI.

We decided to call it a night as the next day, we will be head­ing into the heart of Hong Kong.

Hahaha… like I said, it’s bet­ter to see the pic­tures than see­ing it in real…
