Hong Kong

Our second stopover was in Hong Kong.

We took a trip over to Hong Kong Island and wandered around the street markets, which are full of colour, noise and the locals doing their daily shopping.
We spent some time in the South Seas Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Cafe de Fontaine has a good selection of beer and food.

On our final day a thick fog enveloped the city and gave the skyscrapers a ghostly appearence as they tried to break through the haze.

Our final stopover was in Bahrain.

The Bahrain skyline is dominated by a huge number of building projects, especially on the coast of the City of Manama. Away from the coast you can still wander the small streets and alleyways of the old town and see how the locals go about their daily living.
