I slept in 'til around 7AM local time, awaking to the 1970's "browns & brass" hues of decor that make up Chong Wen Men Hotel. Being close to a major railway station and several major shopping centres, made the hotel a great place to be based while exploring the city of nearly 22 million.
I spent most of the morning walking back and forth, seeking a mobile phone service provider who sells SIMs with data packages to overseas visitors. Once that was sorted I had to then configure the VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection on the server, located back at my house, to ensure I was the only person reading my email as well as having full access to Facebook, Instagram and Google. The major reason for having is Google access is Google Maps , which is how I ensure I get back to my accommodations while on my walkabouts.
