HONG KONG TRIP (THE PEAK)

While in Hong Kong, we had the opportunity to go to the Peak. The Peak is actually a tourist attraction when one visits HK. Going to the peak itself is already a memorable memory for me as we had to get onto the Peak tram in order to reach the peak. You'll be amazed with the sights of the world-famous Victoria Harbour and Kowloon, the spectacular view of the nearby city skyline, lofty skyscrapers and the tranquil green hillsides from up there. What is so special about this tram is the funicular railway which diverges to the top. If u're not used to it, u can get dizzy just like when u're in the airplane. The breathtaking scenery when u're up at the peak will stay in yr mind forever...;) The peak tram station is located at Garden Road Peak Tram Terminal. The nearest Metro is Central. From central, we walked to the station. When u see the Bank of China, U will know that u're heading the right direction.

There are various travel methods in HK such as the tram, ferry and buses. I'm not so sure of the efficiency as i didn't ride any of those except the Metro and the train.

  3. What? No HRC photos? #Blasphemy hehe ;-)
    Any photos on the way up? Am just curious because people usually just take a photo from the top looking down at the city and harbour. Anyways, good info on the direction and what's up there. Wonder when I would get to fly there! :-S

If u read the previous HK entry, then u'll know what happened to my camera during my HK trip...:( And because of that, I had to use my HP & Camcorder.

  4. Eh? Ke situ pulak dia, haha! I was just wondering how beautiful the scenery is going up there, because I think you're the first one who has said so (to me at least). Others usually just say that the view from the top is nice, with no mention about the journey up the hill.

    Anyways sorry to read about your camera. Tak apa, perhaps you can use that as an excuse to go back to HK soon? ;-)
