We visited once again the Hong Kong Coastal Defence Museum, especially the final part of the external exhibition composed by gun batteries, torpedo launch sites and so on, we couldn’t visit last time.

After that, we went to Tam Kung Temple, and then, moved to the terminus of the tramway driving to Causeway Bay and caught it.

We got off in Causeway Bay and caught the tramway going to Kennedy Road. Therefore we got off in Cotton Tree Drive, had a walk to the ferry pier from Central to Kowloon.

After arriving in Victoria Harbour we went to the new Fairwood place in 7 Ashley Road, Yue Hwa International Building, to dine. The place was just starting its business as a part of a chain that’s wide-spread all over the Hong Kong region and beyond.
