Hong Kong

We arrived in Hong Kong at 0600 feeling a bit tired, but feeling up to going into Hong Kong and doing some exploring. After taking out some money at the ATM and grabbing a quick bite at the airport we headed out to the Tai O Stilt houses. This is on one of the outlying islands called Lantau Island, not far from the giant Budda that we visited the last time we were here.
This area is home to the Tanka people - a community of fishermen who have built their homes on stilts above the tidal flats for generations because they do not feel safe on land.
After touring the area and taking lots of photos we headed off to the Soho area - a large marketplace and had some dim sum before heading back to the airport and the last leg of trip - a 5 hour trip to Kathmandu where we will be met at the airport and driven to our hotel where we can finally stretch out on a bed.
