Hong Kong Day 5 - Stanley Markets

Our 5th and final day in Hong Kong and it was time to do some shopping!! We had a late and relaxing start to the day because we were all a bit tired from all the walking the previous days.  We got a taxi to Times Square, the shopping centre near where Cathy & Calle work and had a bit of a shop – which was more of a browse as we discovered some prices were similar to home and decided to wait and see what we would find at the markets.
At lunch time we met Cathy & Calle and got to experience Dim Sum, which was delicious, but the fussy pair were not impressed, Zane wouldn’t try anything but some rice. At least Lily ate some beef and rice but wasn’t going anywhere near the Dim Sum!
Soon after lunch we grabbed a taxi to take us off to Stanley Markets. The markets themselves were a lot smaller than Murray and I imagined but there was quite a lot of things still. The kids busied themselves finding toys and getting small gifts for their friends back home. We didn’t buy too much, in hindsight I wish I had bought a bit more!! We did of course stop for an ice-cream break.



After getting back from the markets we went back to the local shopping centre, Pacific Place to buy an Ipad which is meant to be for everyone, but it has a red cover which clearly means it is mine J followed by dinner at Triple 0’s which is a burger joint (because we decided it was a good idea to have something the kids would eat! )
 Then sadly it was back to pack as we would be heading to the airport very early the next day.
