  11. I just got back from Hong Kong last month and too bad the Ngong Ping 360 is closed for maintenance during that week. But it was my second time to visit Hong Kong so it's ok. I still remember the first time I was riding the cable Ngong Ping 360, it was pretty horrifying as the cable car swung so much due to strong wind and so misty too. Your guide is pretty comprehensive and covered almost everything in Hong Kong. Brilliant.
