Hong Kong

Last Summer, we traveled to Hong Kong to check out the sights. One of the places we went to was Ngong Ping Village to check out the Tian Tan Buddha. It's the world's tallest outdoor bronze Buddha measuring 34 meters tall.

Ngong Ping Village is in the western part of Hong Kong's Lantau Island and it can be reached by bus or by cable car from Tung Chung. We took the cable car going there and the bus going back to Tung Chung.We tried the food at the village and it was really delicious. I can't remember the restaurant's name though. After eating, I looked for the Trash can and I found a Recycle Bin beside it (see below).

After the Ngong Ping trip, we went straight to Hong Kong Disneyland so the kids (and adults) can have some fun with the rides and of course with the Disney Characters. It appears that Hong Kong Disneyland is also doing their share of promoting recyling. Shown below is their recycle bin with Jiminy Cricket. I believe this is near the "it's a small world" attraction. And all throughout the park, they have recycle bins with different characters. I just didn't have time to take pictures because I'm.... err..... the kids were enjoying the park rides and other attractions.

The next day we went to Hong Kong Island to check out Victoria Peak. Along the way, I saw recycling bins at one of the mini-parks. (The date on this picture shows that it was taken on 7/2 but it was actually the next day. My camera was set on EST and I forgot to change it when we went to the Asia Pacific).
