    Day twelve – shopping

    We set aside today to visit some more of the malls in the area. We started off in City Mall, located by the Star Ferry port and conveniently some 10 minutes away from our apartment. After this we headed over to Wan Chai via the Star Ferry.

    Another very hot day, we were both soaked with sweat from both the heat and humidity. We wandered around the Wan Chai area before walking to Causeway bay and it’s many shopping plazas.
    Times Square is one of the main centres, boasting some 260 stores across some 16 floors! We noticed it had started to rain after we arrived, this was the first time we’d seen rain on the entire holiday. Not bad after 12 days considering it rains everyday back home.

    Returning back to the apartment we noticed that Typhoon Signal T1 had been hoisted. We’ve never heard of this before. Apparently this region is prone to typhoons or tropical cyclones from April to September each year. They have a flag system that is displayed at the entrance to all subway stations and on the top right hand corner of all local television channels. The rains continued into the night as the cyclone moved slowly inwards from its current 200km location offshore.
