The Peak, Sky Terrace and Madame Tussauds, Hong Kong

Click to view my itinerary in summary.

No visit is complete without paying a visit to the awesome Peak Tower, where you can take a nostalgic tram to go up and enjoy the most beautiful view in the world.

After our breakfast at Law Fu Kee, we headed to the nearest tram stop which is just right opposite the shop and took electric tram to Chater Garden at Central. (Read: ‘Ding Ding’ HK Tram Guide) The journey took about 10 minutes and we alighted at the fifth stop. FYI there is no announcement of the place where the tram stops. Plan your journey ahead so that you will roughly know how many stops before you alight. (Read: Route service and information)

Central
Ohai, nice weather yo! At Chater Garden

Central
Skyscrapers!

From Chater Garden, walk about 10 minutes to the Peak Tram terminus. From there, you can purchase ticket for a ride up. Since we were visiting almost everything, we bought the HK$200 combo which includes tram return journey, Madame Tussauds and Sky Terrace.

Central

I last visited the place two years back and things seemed to be the same, except this time we were there in the morning and the weather was awesome! (Read: My visit in 2008)

The Peak Tram
45 degrees is not steep!

I wouldn’t elaborate much on Madame Tussauds but in summary, some wax figures were replaced/added. The latest additions (if I’m not mistaken) are Jet Li, Obama and Donnie Yen (in Ip Man suit of course!!!)

Madame Tussauds
We can fight more than 10 people now!

We had lunch at Tsui Wah Restaurant (in my next post), hang out a bit before heading up to Sky Terrace. I’m a very lucky person to be able to visit the same place not once but twice! Moreover, this is one of my favourite places to visit in HK. The view from the top is just too awesome.

The Peak
Old way up!

The Peak
Wide!

The Peak
Hello HK people!!

The cold-northernly wind almost blew us away. It was so strong that we had to keep short our visit as it was very cold.

Strong testament that Brylcreem really holds your hair!

It’s a nice place to visit plus I wouldn’t mind to visit it again if I have the opportunity again.

Direction: (1) via MTR Central Exit J1/J2 (follow signs to the terminus) or (2) via electric tram (alight at Bank Street or Murray Road)
