Fifth Leg -- Last day in lovely HKG!

{Trip last April 2010} On the fifth leg of our trip, we decided to visit Stanley Beach. The bus trip from Central to Stanley Bay was about an hour’s worth. And since we were scheduled to go back to MNL that night, the little time we had left in HKG was really scheduled. 

It was raining that morning so the breeze was extra chilly. Nonetheless, it was the perfect weather, and we were in a perfect place to have brunch, on our last day in HKG. Not only was Stanley Bay a beautiful place, it also exuded a relaxing mood. And despite the expensive bill that was tabbed for our Italian meals, we truly thought that the Pizza and Lasagna was worth our money. 

Spending half the day in Stanley Bay was the most perfect way to end the trip. And should I go back to HKG anytime soon, I’ll make sure to spend more time in this serene place.

You're right Sumi! There are a lot of bargain shops in HKG especially at the Ladies Night Market. It's like Divisoria but way better. :)
