We're coming up on one year since we adopted our daughter and I was feeling kind of nostalgic for China, specifically Hong Kong. So for this week's Monday Listicles I'm straying from the proposed topic and instead sharing...

(weird thing - I think it only sold ice cream)

Noah’s Ark – This is a new attraction. I don't recall seeing anything about this on our last trip in March 2012. They claim to have the world’s only full-scale biblical ark replica. But I checked their claim; it’s not the only one. A guy in the Netherlands built one in November 2012. You can see pictures and an article about that here (it's pretty cool). And there’s another one being built in Kentucky, outside Cincinnati as part of an amusement park. Noah's Ark appears to be a resort, science center, adventure center, and gardens situated on Ma Wan Park island near Disneyland.
Ride a Double-decker bus – We chose not to take this attraction up to the Victoria Peak Tram because 1) we missed the bus, and 2) it looked like a short walk. Wrong. It may not have been a long walk except for the fact that anywhere on Hong Kong Island form the harbor is uphill. Steep uphill. One of us pushing a stroller with a child and the other carrying a child on his back, did not make for an easy walk. We'll make sure we don't miss the bus next time.
If you've been to Hong Kong, what attractions did you enjoy? If you haven't been, what's a favorite attraction you've visited any where in the world?
