New Year’s Day was a fine day as usual in China. We went to the beach in front of Holiday Inn.
Everybody must have stayed up late; the beach was empty.
We had lunch at the coffee shop by the beach and walked by it.
We headed for Nanwan Monkey Island taking a cable car.
At the entrance, a big statue of philosopher welcomed us.
The island was literally full of monkeys.
All the monkeys live outside. Visitors can freely see them live.
It was a paradise for monkeys. We found a swimming pool for them.
After dinner, we rent bicycles at the hotel. Katya had not been riding it since she was a child. They were bikes with gears, but she soon got used to it.
We enjoyed an evening ride and decided to ride around the town next day.
