img_1490

It will be going to be a big day as so much in our list to complete today. No matter how I try to get ready early; but being a mother of 10 months old kid and her lot of stuff to pack. We started again at 10:00 in Morning. I had booked the tour package of “The Victoria Peak” from KLOOK. This tour package includes; The Vicotira Peak Tram and Sky Terrace walk, Madame Tussauds and Trick Eye Museum. The cost was all three are HK $309 per adult.

THE VICTORIA PEAK

There was time option to select at the time of booking tour package from website. I had selected 12:00 pm; so the reporting time was at MTR Central Station was 11:45 am. Take a Exit K for the The Peak Tram terminal. There was a KLOOK person waiting out side of the Central Station Exit K, holding flag in his hand. We waited for more 15 minutes for everyone to join, Then we started in group towards Peak Terminal, it was 2 minutes walk from MTR central Station.

There was different line for tour company and different for spot ticketing. As i said above also, the line for spot ticketing was very very long. We spent around 40 to 45 minutes in line. The sitting capacity of tram is 80 but they accommodate around 100 (few can stand). It was an amazing experience, the train track was very steep, and it looks like building are reclining as the tram move further. It is around 8 minutes drive and its leaves you with an amazing experience.

After reaching there go to the sky terrace and enjoy the awesome view from the peak. You can spend time and click photos as much as you want and you can ;).img_1491


MADAME TUSSAUDS

The best thing was ‘The Peak’ and ‘Madame Tussauds’ is in same building. Madame Tussauds is the wax museum of all celebrities. We entered and started clicking pictures with celebrities, then we moved to Exit point, but it was not exit; there were many more from the Royal, Bollywood celebs, Politicians, Super Hero, Singers, sports, More, More and more. It was the time when I said, it there still more or this is the real EXIT :D.

But, it was fun altogether, we took so many photos with all the Stars and Celebrities. We spent around 1 hour  and whole experience was just superb.

TRICK EYE MUSEUM

The Trick Eye Museum also situated at the Peak and on other side of building. It was a shopping mall and on top floor Trick Eye Museum is situated. The experience is again awesome. some of the 3D Arts were very nice. We took so many pictures. The strange thing was, not many people had taken the trick eye museum tickets. Might be it not advertised more than the Peak and Sky Terrance walk.

One important point I want to make here about these places, specially The Peak and Tin Tin Buddha; as there are timings of Trams and cable car so advise is to finish your tour early to avoid long line while coming back as well. Otherwise, again you have to stand in long queue.img_1660


After coming back from The Peak we took the Bus 15C to Harbour. You can pay the Bus fare with your Octopus card. We spent some quality time at Harbour; since it was new year time; the small amusement park for kid were available at harbour on entry fee of HK $30 per adult.

We took ferry from Harbour to Tsim Sha Sui Terminal and explored the near by place at tsim sha sui. It was great gateway to spend evening time with all amazing brands and Malls. And next to those big brands, there are small street market lines for electronics, hardware and off-course food street. The food street had authentic food and many mini cafe’s and bars. We had our dinner there and it was 11:00 pm already and we missed our hotel shuttle :(. But, it was great day and tiring too. while traveling in MTR me and my husband was discussing about our next day tour plan, as next day was 31st Dec. And we wanted to be at Harbour to see the World’s Famous “Firework Show” :).
