Hong Kong: THE PEAK, way up to the luxurious hill

I personally think that going up to THE PEAK is an excitement that you should try if you're travelling to Hong Kong.

The venerable Peak Tram is, as most passengers agree, the only way to truly experience the beauty of Hong Kong's natural wonders. Tens of millions of people from every corner of the globe have taken the ride, which affords a uniquely spectacular perspective of the city.

Located also at the Garden Road Peak Tram Lower Terminus is The Peak Tram Historical Gallery. Open in September, 2007, The Peak Tram Historical Gallery is like a time tunnel with more than 200 memorabilia exhibited. Divided into 15 theme sections, it will take you back to Hong Kong in the 19th and 21st century. The first day of commercial operation on May 30th, 1888, attracted 600 passengers.

At the Peak Tram Terminal. Mom-in-law, mom, myself and grandma.

You can check the special combo tickets at the ticketing counter. If you plan to visit Madame Tussaud's wax museum (of course you don't want to miss it), get a 2 in 1 or 3 in 1 combo package. View the ticket price here.

The queue is always long.... take time to enjoy the gallery while waiting for your turn to get into the tram.

The track gradient is from 4 degrees to 27 degrees. Quite steep. So remember to give way to the elderly.

I actually prefer to stand than to sit. If you go up before the sunset, you'll have the chance to enjoy nice scenery of Hong Kong.

Wonderful colors at the upper terminus when you disembark from the tram.
