The Honkers-Kiwi-Aussie Tour: Day 42 Central, Hong Kong

Taxi to Hong Kong Station to check in luggage & get boarding cards for flight home. We take the ferry to Kowloon and walk to the Hong Kong Museum of History where school groups of various ages are arriving for their tours. We luck out as admission to the "Story of Hong Kong" exhibit is free today.

"Occupying an area of 7,000 m2, The Hong Kong Story comprises 8 galleries located on two floors. Through the display of over 4,000 exhibits with the use of 750 graphic panels, a number of dioramas and multi-media programmes, and enhanced with special audio-visual and lighting effects, The Hong Kong Story outlines the natural environment, folk culture and historical development of Hong Kong vividly."

It is definitely a world-class museum and my only regret is that we were not able to visit earlier in the tour.

In the snack bar we enjoy a delicious, reasonably priced lunch of angel-hair noodles topped with a creamy sauce and three types of mushrooms.

We take the train from Kowloon Station to the airport and have a fairly comfortable flight home, stopping at Anchorage for refuelling.

Chaplin Clive kindly is waiting at Pearson Airport to pick us up and has thoughtfully brought a few provisions to welcome us back home.
