Sai Kung, near Hong Kong

This isn't Hong Kong. It's Sai Kung, the town 2 miles from the marina. Sai Kung is sort of the Malibu of the area. Actually, this is a photo of the water and boats in front of Sai Kung.

Let's leave Sai Kung and take a mini bus into Hong Kong city.

There are three ways to shop in Hong Kong.
One is to go to a mall. There are hundreds of huge malls here. Let's go into one.

Oh, and if spending all your money has made you ill, here is one of the many Chinese pharmacies located all over the city.

Or, you can shop at one of the many street markets in Hong Kong. I think they're the most fun. You can visit one on the next page.


A footnote: I went to a traditional Chinese opera one night and asked what it was about. No one knew! So, I enjoyed the music, the costumes and the actors.

...Or... is this a store clerk saying "Sorry, sir, that you've waited on line so very long in our beautiful mall, but we don't give discounts based on how long your beard has grown. Can I offer you a coupon for, like, um... ahhh... a beard trim?"
