Hong Kong Trip Day 3: The Peak Tram (山顶缆车) and Sky Terrace (凌霄阁摩天台)


Hong Kong Trip Day 3: The Peak Tram and The Peak Tower Sky Terrace (凌霄阁摩天台)

I skipped a little bit from the Ocean Park (海洋公园) taking you guys to The Peak Tower situated 396 meters above sea level. On our way heading to The Peak Tram Station located at Central's Garden Road St. Joseph Building, we walked pass these two iconic buildings namely the Bank of China Tower (中銀大廈) and the Cheung Kong Center (長江集團中心), incredibly stunning!

"Ding Ding", the double-deck tramcars which have operated on Hong Kong Island for more than 100 years (since 1904).

An open top sightseeing tour bus we saw.

We were stunted as soon as we reached there.
I was like OMG, just look at the people crowded at the ticket selling booth!

We got pushed and squeezed by others when making our ways into to the Peak Tram >=/
I mean, what's with the rush when we could eventually arrive together after 8 to 10 minutes?

Taking escalators to the Peak Tower Sky Terrace (凌霄阁摩天台). No free wi-fi *frown*

Lions Pavilion Lookout (狮子亭观景台) which is only few minutes walk away from the right of the Peak Galleria Shopping Centre's main entrance.

I assume this is a mansion or a restaurant owned by some rich people here.

Our best shot, Victoria Harbour as well as the Southern Districts of Hong Kong Island. They could merely be seen under such hazy / foggy / misty (or whatever you wanna call it) condition, bad timing I guess.

Getting worse... We better off to our next destinations now...

  1. The red house with the rooftop is called Epworth Lodge and it is an old colonial place now divided into four apartments, I own the lower right hand side (when looking at the building from below). The roof is part of the top floor apartment, owned by a Cambodian family ....
