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