The Peak - Hong Kong

We reached our hotel in Yau Ma Tei around 3pm and as soon as we change to warm clothing, we went to The Peak. Took the MTR to Central and walked to the lower terminal of The Peak Tram. The walk was like 15 minutes, because it was going uphill.


We bought the Tram ticket together with Madam Tussaud entrance ticket. Here's a look of the tram. Actually it can fit in a lot of people. When it was going uphill, we can see some scenery of Hong Kong's skyscrappers. That day was really foggy.


At the top of The Peak, we walked out from the building and had a walk around that area. Below is a older version of the tram.




We were hungry as the airplane food was not nice. We chose this Mak's Noodle as our tea time.


Wanton Mee. The dumplings were really tasty with lots of big pieces of prawns (which I like!). The soup was clear and has some flavour in it, not overpowering. Their version of mee was much thinner than our Malaysian version. It was springy.


Dad ordered beef noodles and he really liked it very much. I know it because he tried other restaurant beef noodles in the next few days and it was not as good as this. The beef was really tender.


Some scenery when you are on top of the Peak.


You can some people at the platform on the top right corner of this photo. You can purchase The Peak tram tickets together with Viewing at the Top (at additional cost ya).
