Tour of Tourist Attractions

I have transformed from a resident (when I was still 12) to a visitor (when I was 16 and my only mission in Hong Kong is to shop), and now I'm a tourist. I have decided that I need to see the sights here, not only because this is my birth place, but I really haven't seen any. Plus it gave me a good chance to spend some quality time with my relatives..

My dad said that Stanley was a good place to visit, so I took a trip down there with him for lunch and walked around the beaches for a bit. It was surprising to see such a beautiful area in a city filled with smog and high-rise buildings. We had lunch in a restaurant that faces the beach, with the patio outside and the warm summer breeze blowing. It is hard to believe that half an hour bus ride from Stanley is the busiest place in Hong Kong on weekends!

Later that night, I went to Lan Kwai Fong with my cousins and my uncles. Although I've been to the area many times, my cousins haven't been during the night time so they wanted to see it too. We also went back near Stanley to Repulse Bay and Deep Water Bay - there were so many people BBQing near the beach, playing group games, and having a blast. We took some pictures (although it didn't quite turn out) and then called it a night.
