Why do we have such fancy names. “Promenade”. Walking by the “Promenade”. Seriously. It’s called a water front. I walked along the water front. I am going to stick with that.
It was a hot saturday afternoon, so of course we decided to be healthy and walk along the “water front” (http://www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/parks/mospd/index.html).
I really should start ” ” the word water front. It’s kind of annoying.
The promenade or water front is located in ma on shan, it was only about a 5 minute walk from the station. Good thing was you walk through a mall before getting here, so at least you get to chill out a bit before venturing out into the hotness that’s called Hong Kong humidity.
I really hate the humidity here, I get wet, sticky, sweaty, hot etc etc. All bad combinations.
The walk was worth it. The best part is there is not a lot of people here, unlike TST or MK or central. So it’s a nice get away. Although next time I will be smarter and not go in the early afternoon. Should get later in the evening (like 5 – 6). Maybe an after dinner stroll?
Another thing I want to vent about, is why the hell is there no restaurants / bar located along the water front? This is literally prime location for those establishments. I am fucking hot and thirsty, I wanted a beer. Why were there no beers selling at this place. Such good business opportunities lost.
I should be an urban planner. But then everywhere would be restaurants and bar. But it would be a great tourist attraction no?
Oh there is also a park here. We walked through the park, and found one of those pebble roads. I LOVEEEE pebble roads. It’s suppose to stimulate your circulation, and also it lets you know if you body has a lot of problems. You would know this if your foot is hurting like crazy while walking on the pebbles.
I recommend you taking off your socks for this for the full effect. Eh don’t worry, you’re going to shower anyways right? Just try it, stop complaining.
