Hong Kong's The Peak
Riding the TRAM going to HK's the Peak is an adventure on its own!
It was crazy enough going up HK's famous the Peak at a 90 degrees angle, then imagine riding down at the same angle backward (yup backward).
I was like, come on... REALLY?
|On board, HK's famous Peak tram!|
|Love the Peak!|
|Waiting for our turn on the binoculars.|
|Waiting for the tram :D|
|Going down the Peak backward was fun, but made me a bit dizzy!!!|
Riding the Tram for us was more fun than reaching the actual destination.
I do not understand the hype, the apparently spectacular skyline, was just okay for me. I have seen better skylines in Manila, Cebu and Antipolo.
However, they do have tram in HK.
The tram earned this experience a plus and at least a half day in your tourist's itinerary.
The Peak Tram Lower Terminus is a 10 minute up hill walk from Central. Although there are famous Hong Kong landmarks along the way, the walk is not leisurely if you are travelling with kids. I suggest you take alternative means of transportation going there.
If you are walking from the MTR Central station, make your way to the J2 exit and walk up to the ground level. Turn right, through Chater Garden, cross Queen's Road Central, and make your way up Garden Road. You will pass the Bank of China Tower and Citibank Plaza on your left and St John's Cathedral on your right.
