Picture of the Day: A Far-Out View

On Thursday I checked out the Hyatt Regency in Shatin, New Territories.

I didn't know there was a hotel out there but it opened about a year and a half ago, conveniently located right next to the University KCR station and the bus terminus. It is near Chinese University and also a new tourism school that will open in September.

The hotel is usually busy with conferences and meetings from mostly local but now international groups are coming as well to this secluded area. Also residents in the area swarm the place on the weekends for the buffet and pool.

This picture is the view from one of the hotel's top floors, looking towards Tolo Harbour. Along the bottom right hand corner of the picture is a red path, which is actually a bicycle path around the area. Guests of the hotel can rent bikes and ride along the water for hours.

Sounds like a cool recreational activity I'd like to try out sometime.
