Nevertheless Shenzhen would be an interesting place to spend more time we went to the Customs and stepped across the border on territory of Special Administrative Region Hong Kong. Hong Kong belongs to China mainland but has a high authority in decision making owing to the line ‘one country, two systems’. This place used to be dependent territory of the United Kingdom in colonial times and an important harbour for the Empire starting from the mid 19th century. More than 10 years ago in 1997 the territory was returned to the Peoples Republic of China.
Driving through the so called New Territories breathtaking sceneries opened up to us till we reached Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon, where we checked into our by far to small hostel room. Nevertheless it didn’t detain from taking a glimpse at the amazing skyline of Hong Kong Island at night. On the next day we mainly explored Hong Kong Island itself including the Victoria Peak and the famous Lan Kwai Fong, a very touristic bar and club area.
