China 2016 – Day 5 – Hong Kong – Part 2 – 16 November 2016

The Peak

I made my way from Central to the base station of the Peak Tram, where I bought a return ticket to the top with entrance to the Sky Terrace. It was HK$88, which I didn’t have on me in cash, so I had to find an ATM and return. I was beginning to realise that I couldn’t pay with my card in HK like I can in Australia.

I was lucky and got a window seat on the tram heading up to the peak.

Once up at the peak, I walked around a bit. Every day was forecast to be hazy (it’s what happens in November apparently), so the view wasn’t as good as it could have been, but it was what it was.

Lion’s Pavilion

The first place I went was the Lion’s Pavilion.

Break

I then decided I needed a break, so I got a drink from a coffee shop and just sat there using their free wifi!

Sky Terrace

I also went to the Sky Terrace, as it was included in the ticket I bought. The audio commentary wasn’t really all that good, so I didn’t listen to it.

The Peak Tower

I wandered around the base of the Peak Tower for a while and bought my nephew a metal double-decker tram. It was then time to head down the hill, so I got back on the tram (and got a window seat again, but on the same side of the tram – I wanted to sit on the other side because the views were better).

I made my way to the Star Ferry and went across to Tsim Sha Tsui.
