Hong Kong & Kowloon – Street Scenes in the Daylight

Hong Kong and Kowloon are both fascinating cities with so much to see.  Since I never knew my Dad and this is where he lived and died, I imagined myself being in his shoes and seeing these same sights.  It was a very personal moment for me.

Hong Kong Station (MTR). A downtown check-in for those traveling by Air. Check-in your flight, check your bags and grab the train to the Airport. A convenience for allowing those with a later flight to spend some time exploring the city before heading to the airport.
