Decided to make a bit of a "real" holiday out of Hong Kong and have spent yesterday and today in Ocean Park, a big theme park, with plenty of big rollercoaster rides as well as Seaworld-type shows. There's a fabulous cable-car ride from one side of the park to the other, over a huge hill, giving amazing views of south Hong Kong island. There's also two lovely Panda enclosures, one only opened this past April, in conjunction with the Chengdu Panda Research Centre, which we'd loved to have visited but it's just too far off the beaten track to do this time.
It's hot and humid still, but today the rain came down in buckets so it's lifted the humidity a bit this evening. Went for a swim in the hotel pool this morning about 8am, it's was so odd..lovely and warm but raining on us while we were swimming!
