I had one day to kill in Hong Kong and I wasn’t going to waste a minute. Of course I couldn’t see everything, but I wanted the day to be meaningful. I began with an early run along Victoria Harbor. When I exited the harbor, I strolled on the streets. Nathan Road is one of the larger streets in the neighborhood. I saw these beautiful painted steps. I didn’t know where they led, but of course I had to climb them to find out.
At the top of the stairs, I learned that this was the entrance to Kowloon Park. I love exploring local parks! As I entered, I saw a procession of amazing statues. I had no idea what it was, but soon learned that this was a special exhibit – Hong Kong Avenue of Comic Stars. I was thrilled beyond belief even though I don’t follow Hong Kong comics!
If I had to pick a favorite, it would have been this lovely lady – Miss 13 Dots.
But they really all were so cute!
There were also some great posters and banners describing the event:
As it was morning, I saw quite a few people practising Tai Chi. This area of the park had a lot of wonderful statues.
I fell in love with this statue.
I only had one day in Hong Kong. It began with a morning run and this stroll through Kowloon Park. Now, it was about 9 am, so it was time to return to my hotel, the Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui for breakfast before embarking on the rest of my day, which included a visit to Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden.
