Since the hike took us less than half the time we had expected, we found ourselves with more than half the day free. We hauled out our little guide books and maps and quickly zeroed in on our next destination: Hong Kong Park and the Tea Museum.
The tea museum was free of charge and definitely worth a visit. We had hoped to join the free tea appreciation class that is offered at the adjacent tea shop, but unfortunately the class was filled. Fortunately, the class would be offered once more during our visit. We made a reservation and continued exploring Hong Kong park.
We came upon the aviary during our exploration. It was full of rare birds-some of which were not a bit shy.
On our walk back towards the pier, we came upon a beautiful church and another park. (Hong Kong is full of nice parks!)
We caught the Star Ferry back over to Kowloon. If you have time, taking the ferry from Hong Kong island to Kowloon is so much more fun than taking the metro. And just as cheap and nearly as convenient. We loved it and took the ferry multiple times during our trip.
