Day 19 - Hong Kong

In Hong Kong we decided to take a city tour.  Little did we know how easy it was to get around and we would not have signed up to do group activities and would have just relied on public transportion.
On our tour, our first stop was the Man Mo Monestary.  Man was the God of literature/business and Mo was the God of martial arts. 

At the temple people could buy these incense rings.  The bigger the donation, the bigger the ring.

People announce their arrival to Man and Mo by banging the drum three times and and ringing the bell three times.

Our next stop was Victoria Peak.  We took the tram to the top of the mountain for a great view of the city and the harbor.

We had heard many people talk about the view of Hong Kong at night and the laser light show.  It was a pretty neat show they do every night set to music.  Something like 40 buildings participate in lighting up and moving their lights to the music.
