Day 4 - 世界之窗 ShenZhen , China

One day trip to the world. Extremely interesting!
Day 4 in Hong Kong , according to my trip planer. We decided to go to Shen Zhen , since its so nearby. Took MTR early in the morning to Shen Zhen. The ticket to "Lu Wo" one of the Shen Zhen main station cost HK$43.50. The journey took about 1hour from Causewaybay to Lu Wo.
You need visa to enter Shen Zhen. Dont forget to do your visa !
So once we reach Lu Wo station , we immediately buy our ticket to the Window of the world. Only cost us RMB5. The journey is about 20minutes. Unlike Hong Kong , Shen Zhen train is way pack ! Have to stand for 20minutes only reach our destination.
Taaaa daaaaa ! We finally reach to the Window of the world .
Wondering what is the Window of the world is all about ?
Let me tell you in short , window of the world is the main attraction at Shenzhen is a must visit place. It houses all the miniatures of the world. Here you can see miniatures of the Eiffel Tower, Taj mahal, Naigara Falls & much more. It has about 130 reproductions of some of the most famous tourist attractions in the world squeezed into 48 hectares (118 acres). The entrance ticket cost only RMB$140 per person.

Is definitely A MUST VISIT PLACE ! ! !
Nothing to blog about but I got tons of pictures to share with you all !
The Grand Palace of Thailand.
Katsura Detached Palace , Japan.

Angkor Wat , Cambodia.
Japanese Village !
See this dummmy - . -
Love this so much !
Only RMB20 for each of this costume. Its like DAMN EFFIN CHEAP , because they will wear for you , they even have tools & you can walk everywhere to take picture. No time limit at all !
We request the friendly staff to help us take few picture and they help us took from each room to room , but outside the village we have to take our self. We only travel together , just the both of us. So we often have difficultly in taking pictures together. But luckily , we still manage it !
日本は愛です !
Love all the pictures that we took , really enjoy very much !

Next destination is China . Spotted different costume again , so we rent the oriental Chinese costume.
Same its only RMB20 , about RM10 only !
Venice , Italy
One of my dream place to go in future !
A typical landscape of Holland & the windmill.
Pyramid and Sphinx of Giza , Egypt.
Naigara Falls , Canada.
The Taj Mahal , IndiaLastly the miniature Skyscrapers of the Manhattan borough of New York, New York, U.S.A.
We walk for about 4hours like non-stop , and we still dint manage to walk the whole place. Our legs are really exhausted , couldn't finish the whole place because we couldn't walk anymore. There are few more place & games that we dint mange to see. We decided leave the place & have our dinner. I think we manage to see 80% of the place , so its still worth it !
Dinner time at a shopping mall , forgotten what is this restaurant called. Too tired , cant walk anymore and we are damn hungry. We ordered fried egg with prawns , duck chicken & pork meat in a set , and also some vegetables. Finished everything like clean & clear ! Then we spend few minutes in the malls , shopping & browsing around and then we headed back to Hong Kong. I was sleeping through out the whole journey home. Erm , I mean back to Causeway bay our hotel.

Really a great trip , great place to visit & spend our whole day !
Who could ever believe to see the best parts of the world in 4Hrs? I did and it was great. All the model buildings and parks are carefully constructed in detail. So much to see and so many countries to visit. There are plenty of daily performances and rides to entertain the crowd.

Day 3 - 女人街 & Avenue of Stars

After done praying & visiting at Wong Tai Sin temple off we headed to the Ladies street (女人街). Just take the MTR to Mong kok and exit E2. Did all my homework before travelling , so I got no problem. Everything is so easy as ABC! Ha ha ha.... Sorry I was too proud of myself =)

While we was hunting for toilet , we bump into this dessert shop because they have toilet. So we decided to have some bite & also to rest our feet & fill our stomach. Surprisingly its very clean & they serve lots of dessert. Their speciality is Mango. The price is reasonable too. Forgotten what is the shop called , all I know is once you exit E2 , just walk straight & you will spot a corner shop selling drinks like bubble tea & dessert.

All right , our next destination is to Tsim Sha Tsui for . . . . . .

The Avenue of Stars & Symphony of lights !
Avenue of stars (星光大道) was design to recognize the film industry's contribution in promoting Hong Kong as a destination worldwide. The Avenue of stars is located along the Victoria Harbour waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Avenue of Stars is a free attraction that can be visited any time of the day or night. It's especially lovely in the evening when it's illuminated with tons of twinkling lights. Great place to watch the Symphony of lights. Symphony of lights is a synchronised building exterior decorative light and laser multimedia display, featuring 44 buildings on both sides of the Victoria Harbour of Hong Kong accompanied by music. The technology was developed by Australian firm Laser vision and cost approximately 44 million HK dollar. It has attracted over 4 million visitors and locals so far, and is held every night for ten minutes.

While going back to our hotel , we stop by at Lan Kwai Fong since its one of the main attraction in Hong Kong. is a small square of streets in Central , Hong Kong. Its famous for clubbing , drinking & dining. Lots of club & Bistro there but unfortunately we are tired & we are not into alcoholic mood too. So we just walk for a while & headed straight back home.

Just like in those HK drama you can find police everywhere at the whole Lan Kwai Fong street. If my clubbing life is here , I feel safe all the time! Ha ha ha ha . . . . .

That's all for the Day 3 , this is our shopping damage .
Actually nothing much , was kinda disappointed with the shopping there. Couldn't find much girls fashion. They sell lots of sport shoe & much more bags & tee's for guys. Just bought souvenirs & Textwood jeans for dad birthday present.

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure.
There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
