6 days of short trips of Thailand Pattaya and Hong Kong.
Since our 31- day cruise of Trans-Pacific& Orient of Holland America(will share later) ended at Port of Hong Kong,we took this opportunity to have another 6 days of short stays in Thailand Pattaya (3 days) and Hong Kong (3 days) on our own respectively.
In Thailand --we mainly spent our time in this beautiful Pattaya Resort for two full days except the last day in which our friend drove us around to some famous places of tourist attraction in four rush hours because we had 4:00 pm flight to Hong Kong .
In Hong Kong-- I had a full free day by myself. Therefore ,I went to "Hollywood Road "to tour around the area and its vicinities to see my old places where my family and I had lived for more than 23 years. Everything had changed a lot. All old wood and brick built buildings are now all cemented ones. The streets are more clean and not so crowded as before. I had a good day to refresh my memory of my past childhood there. I took quite a few photos as well. Then I left this area at about 5:00 pm to continue to take a rid in a two-storied street tram costing only HK $2.00 from east point of the island to the west of it . Thus, I could enjoy seeing all those shops and buildings along the route and tried to remember what they were before . The whole trip took about one hour,but I think it was worthy. I went back to Hotel at 8:30 pm. I did have a fun and enjoyable day !
We did not do much shopping or sight-seeing in both Thailand and Hong Kong this time because of our short stays and besides ,we had been there before.
