Following Shanghai, I finally got back on track to exploring Hong Kong and finally doing some touristy stuff. The coolest thing yet was seeing the Big Buddha with Jeane. It was a perfect day to go as it was a foggy one, making the Buddha look quite mysterious. But the way to the Buddha itself was just as fantastic. To get there, we had to ride cable cars through the giant hills of Lantau Island to reach Ngong Ping Village, a tourist area built to resemble an old village that was filled with several restaurants and gift shops.
Below the Giant Buddha was Po Lin Monastery, a Buddhist monastery. Though the large temple houses were awesome, what really caught my eye were the random dogs everywhere in sight. EVERYWHERE.
