A quick trip to Lantau Island, Hong Kong

It was our last day in Hong Kong so we woke up really early in the morning to catch a bus to head to the airport which is in Lantau Island that’s where Disneyland is but NOOOO we didn’t go there. 🙁

So we kept our luggage at the airport and paid the rent for storing it while we go and explore the island. We took  a train to where the Ngong Ping Cable Car is located but unluckily it was not operational on that day and we missed all the buses that goes up to Hong Kong Buddha and we didn’t have enough time. So we took a taxi which was bloody expensive. Fortunately, on our way back to the train we managed to take a bus which was so much cheaper.



When we arrived to the top (btw, it’s quite far) we passed by the Ngong Ping Village and walked towards the Po Lin Monastery and the Hong Kong Buddha was located there. We walked all the way up to the big Buddha which was EXHAUSTING but the view was breath-taking. We later visited the monastery and headed back to the airport to catch our flight.



It was indeed a short and quick trip and maybe some day we will get to explore more of the island next time.



May 2018 Recap

May was a quiet month especially that it is the month of Ramadan when all the restaurants shut down and eating and drinking in public is prohibited here in the UAE. So besides work, we met up with family and friends for Iftar and Suhoor.

Destinations we’ve visited

We only visited Dubai and Sharjah. It is the month of Ramadan and we are all fasting so we are mainly visiting those 2 cities to break our fast.

Highlights of the month

  • Ramadan started on 17th May 2018 and we are all fasting. Working hours are short and we break our fast at 7 PM.
  • Had Iftar with my brothers in Wokyo
  • We went to ROVE-Healthcare City.
  • Tim and I had iftar at Viceroy, Yas Island in Abu Dhabi

What I read this month?

I’ve joined GoodReads.Com to track how many books I’m reading, read and even want to read.

So far I’m still reading The Travels of Ibn Battuta by Tim Mackintosh-Smith.

What have I blogged in May?

Hopefully things will start picking up again and we will be back to exploring. We’ve recently moved to Abu Dhabi and haven’t really explored the city much but we will be as soon as Eid begins.
