Victoria Peak on a Clear Day
Submitted by bugsly on Wednesday, May 10, 2006 - 23:35 Core | Foreign Language and Music Study | Hong Kong | Physical and Health Education | Tea

Today we woke up to wonderful, clear skies and headed out for the Tram to Victoria Peak. On our way, we walked through Hong Kong Park where we went up stairs for almost the entire time. In the end it paid off. When we got to the station, we bought our tickets and waited for the next Tram to arrive.

We rode the Tram, which has been in operation for more than 100 years, all the way to the top of the mountain. When we arrived at the top, the view was amazing. We could see all of the way across Victoria Harbour and the skyline of Hong Kong, Kowloon and beyond. It was special to have such a clear day and to be able to see so far (according to my Dad).

We had lunch there and then headed back down the mountain. Hong Kong is the home to the worlds longest pedestrian escalator. So, we took a taxi to ride it. My Dad suggested that we start at the top and go downward towards the markets. So the taxi driver dropped us off and we immediately discovered that the escalator was running up the hill as you would expect. So, we walked down, next to the escalator, an extremely long flight of stairs that covered more than 40 or 50 city blocks.

After that we found an antique store to explore and then my Dad and I headed to the outdoor market nearby and I bought presumably fake Paul Frank watches for my Mom and me ($2 each!).

It was a fun day! Hong Kong is a bustling, yet organized city.
