|We love going to Hong Kong in December. The Christmas lights and decorations are all up. Weather is just right, comfortably cool to walk around.|
The Mira Hotel, formerly the Miramar Hotel, along Nathan Road in Tsimshatsui (TST).
The Mira's Christmas color motif this year is silver and blue. Last year's was silver and purple.
|The king-sized bed and pillows are very comfy. And for some modesty in the bathroom, there are electric privacy blinds that come down.|
We don't bother bringing basic toiletries since the hotel provides them. And they are replenished every day even the toothbrush and shaver!
First thing we do as soon as we drop our bags off: visit our favorite bakeshop! Guess what's inside?
|Egg tarts and pork pies! They are so good!|
|Art work at the entrance to the Central-Mid-levels escalators.|
|This is our nth visit to Hong Kong but our first time to visit the Central-Mid-level escalators. These series of escalators is the longest outdoor covered escalator/walkalator in the world.|
|Inside the escalators. Notice it only goes one way.|
|Wonderful old building along the escalators.|
|Quite a hike going back down to Central.|
|There are walking tour markers on the sidewalks of Hong Kong that you can follow.|
|One of several pubs and bars in Central.|
|I-Square's Ferrero Rocher Christmas tree.|
|1881 Heritage's Christmas decoration this year.|
|Symphony of Lights at the Hong Kong Harbour.|
|Even late at night there are still a lot of Christmas shoppers.|
We found these waiting for us when we got back to our room. Just one of the reasons we keep coming back to the Mira!
