Hong King in Gloom, Hong King
Sunday 29th June
We got up really early, 3.30am, jumped in a cab around 4 and boarded a flight to Macau around 7. 2 ½ hours later as we made our descent to Macau international the visibility out of the window was non existent until we were virtually on the ground. On landing we were made to stay on the plane a further 20 minutes until the rain eased off a little The Macau tower was lost in cloud, and an abundance of lightening. Apparently it has rained every day here for a month!
We jumped on one of the many ferries that run between Macau and Hong Kong, the comfortable, super-fast catamaran was in stark contrast to the many rickety boat journeys we endured in Thailand.
A few weeks ago the south coast of China was hit by another Cyclone, causing major flooding amongst other things. The effects of this were still evident throughout or stay, but even in the rain and overcast the Hong Kong skyline is magnificent.
