Victoria Peak, Hong Kong Island

Day 1

Morning
Our initial plan was to go to Ocean Park but, blame it on the cold weather (with occasional rain shower) we ended up staying at our guesthouse, cooked and ate our lunch (you can use the kitchen stove and utensils) while watching a delayed telecast of Eat Bulaga (the land lady’s a Filipino).

Afternoon
Thank God the rain had stopped; we eagerly went out of our guesthouse to get to our planned afternoon destination… the Victoria Peak. Victoria Peak is one of the highest mountains in Hong Kong Island which is known for malls, restaurants, museums, observation deck and the tram.

Peak Tram – aside from the bus, one means of transportation going to the peak is via tram. It is the world’s oldest and steepest funicular railway.

Raised in the hustle and bustling life of the metro but has savored the laid back lifestyle of the countryside during summer vacations. At a very young age, she has experienced being stranded on a train for 3 days, being thrown inside the window of the bus just to save a seat and “top loaded” (riding on the roof) on a PUJ just to reach their destination. …Traveling became her adventure since then.
