our plan was to do a peak circle walk around evening time, so we could have a nice, panoramic view & also see the sunset, evening hue. ^^

it was great that our flight arrived a bit earlier than 12.25pm & the journey to metropark hotel was very smooth. we arrived at hotel about 1.30pm & were able to check in & got out of the hotel by around 2pm. so everything came together nicely.

we had a light & nice dimsum at dimdimsum tung choi street at mongkok about 2.30pm.

then roast goose at yatlok at about 4pm.

& we flag a taxi at the taxi stand outside central mtr station & bascially was at the peak galleria by 5.30pm.

Peak Tram tickets
Return Single
Adult HK$ 45 HK$ 32
Child (aged 3-11)
Senior (aged 65 or above)
HK$ 20 HK$ 12
Remark: All ticket prices would be effective from September 1, 2016

taxi far for 4pax was about HK$62, again the most cost effective travel. peak tram fare is HK$45 return HK$32 single, & it’s always long queue coming up & this time as we were leaving i guess evening peal hours, again long queue going down. so taxi was perfect for us.

the setting sun cast a gentle golden hue.

& hong kong’s 2 tallest buildings – the IFC & ICC – stood out tall & iconic.
