At last I have come to the last destination on my 21 day tour of China. Hong Kong was less smoggy than anywhere else we had been, though there was a haze as the day heated up.
We stayed at l’Hotel Nina et Convention Centre in the New Territories, not on Hong Kong Island, nor in Kowloon, which lies between the New Territories and Hong Kong Island. Our fellow tour-ists also stayed there and ate breakfast there, but we were free to tour Hong Kong on our own time and according to our own tastes.
Half way up the rise to our room, we had to change elevators – somewhere around the 44th floor. The elevator lobby at that height looked westward and southwest towards sea lanes and shipping. Most of the following photos were taken out of windows so you will see reflections in some of the corners.
From the same elevator lobby you could also see south towards a densely populated city where building was going on everywhere.
From our room we could see south and eastwards towards the mountains of the New Territories.
Looking down, you could see the hotel’s amenities, but we never went!
This dining table seats at least 25. We breakfast buffet clients didn’t get to sit there!
