A stroll through Kowloon Walled City Park

One of the surprising things about Hong Kong is how interesting some of the parks are. I’ve mentioned Kowloon Walled City Park before, but it never ceases to amaze me when I go to the park how much of an incredibly seedy and disturbing history it once had. Yet now, it is a paradise full … Continue reading

Cretaceous Park … at the Hong Kong Science Museum

Ah the Hong Kong Science Museum. Possibly one of my sprogs favourite places to venture in Tsim Sha Tsui. I’ve talked about it before, and I’m going to mention it again as it currently has a Dinosaur exhibition running until April. Who doesn’t LOVE dinosaurs. They inspire and intrigue us. They make us question life, … Continue reading
