The Ngong Ping 360 is a cable car ride of about 25 minutes from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping in Lantau Island to visit the Ngong Ping Cultural Village and the famous Big Buddha. I took the cable car with the glass bottom, which offered a panoramic view of the Tung Chung Bay and the Airport from high up.
Another cable car ride in Hong Kong is a shorter but equally colourful and adventurous ride in Ocean Park.
I was looking forward to taking another ride UP there in the hot air balloon, but sadly the ride did not operate due to high wind. Well, another time.
This week the Travel Theme of Ailsa’s Blog Where’s My Backpack is Green.
With St. Patrick’s Day just round the corner, I feel that I should look up my travel albums and find out what’s green in there. Normally I see lots of greens–trees, grass, and moss– on my hikes and walks, and so I am quite pleased to find “green” in a different setting. All these photos were taken in the Grand Aquarium of Hong Kong Ocean Park. In fact, I am pleasantly surprised that with my not so smart “point and shoot” camera, I could get these images.
Having satisfied the “Travelling” portion of this theme, please allow me to include some “green” pictures that I do not have to travel far to take. My facetious picks (pun and all) are from the vegetable plot in my backyard.
