Last activity day in Hong Kong, and we went to the Peak. It is rasy to locate the Peak Tram because we had been in the area the previous day to take the special bus to Ocean Park. Anyway, the tram ride is a must-have experience because at one stretch of the ride, the angle of inclination is soo steep, that the building are all slanted. It is not the buildings that are slanted but us, on the tram. We reached the Peak Tower in a few minutes and did some shopping at the wholesale outlet there. We went to the Sky terrace and there we got to see the whole of Victoria harbour and the buidlings on its sides. It was misty again, but still very nice. The air is fresh and we imagine who are the people who own the houses that we see on the peak. Apparently, only wealthy ppl can own a house at the Peak, good fengshui and fresh air.
After lunch, we went down, took tram to Causeway bay, The tram is something that is already extinct in Singapore, but it is a very environmentally friendly and cheap mode of transport. We took the upper deck seats and it is just different from the normal double deck bus we have here. The fare is 2HKD, probably about 40cents in Singapore, cheaper than taking MTR from Central to Causeway Bay.
Reached Causeway bay, shopped at Times Sq, nothing much really, but sis wanted to buy clothes. Then we went to Tsim Sha Tsui, Ave of stars to catch the Symphony of lights again from another view. We managed to clear all our shopping list, and finanly spotted A famous Yuen Lang store which sells wife cookie. Somehow, we can only find this stall in MTR station.....Anyway, we can see our favourite Bank of China building from Ave of stars and it has more colours and lights as compared to the building on Tsim Sha Tsui. No wonder there are more ppl watching the show from Ave of stars. One thing is that you cant hear the music from the Ave of stars.
