Last day in Hong Kong is a tour towards China,

...... into the new territories behind Kowloon, to see markets mostly.

passing the neighbouring ship... very nice..

We stop at another temple & I couldn't figure what these were at first.

Incense burning.

While I was waiting in the courtyard for the group to emerge there was a man in handcuffs being talked to by the cops. Looked very serious but everyone just carried on regardless.

While I was waiting for the bus to fill up I saw some groups of school kids heading up some stairs to a builidng that turned out to be what I assume to be a small railway museum.

Snacks..

I did get a bit lost a one point but any city with a subway system is impossible to get lost in, so I dived into the underground

& back to Kowloon.

I was about to take a photo of the McDonalds when this took my attention for some reason..another market???

I had a walk round the shopping center attached to the cruise terminal. Very big, very expensive & totally confusing. I bumped into Jenny who insisted I go into this room to see some chocolate.

large_P1060843.jpg

Well I have seen chocolate before, but this takes the bisquit as everything on the table is made chocolate....

Last segment, new passengers - new country.
