Hong Kong Day 3

We went to Ngong Ping 360 in Lantau Island. There we took a cable car journey to a themed village - Po Lin Monastery and visited with the Giant Buddha to experience the Buddhism culture. We were supposed to go to HK island on a ferry as part of the trip but unfortunately Kylie was not feeling well and we ended up leaving the tour early. We were faced with the emergency trip to a foreign clinic with a non English speaking driver. All was well as the Dr. spoke fluent English and gave our girl some meds that made her feel better within a few hours. We still don't know what was wrong other than she was crying because her tummy hurt and she had a fever. Our girl rarely cries when she is ill so we were definitely concerned that it may have been something more.  Thank goodness it was not. The tour and the entire trip itself was a great experience and we are already talking about going back at some point.  If you are planning to go to HK I highly recommend this tour for a nominal fee of approximately $1500 (HKD)  for 3 ppl which ends up being under $200 USD:-)  Click here if you'd like to learn more about the cable car and tour.
