Climbing The Peak, Hong Kong

My brother and I arrived in Hong Kong in the afternoon, it was a hot day to walk so we waited until at least the sun’s already down and walking’s more pleasurable.  After a fatty meal at a local McDonalds, we’re ready to conquer The Peak.

A lovely Middle Eastern family friendly enough to allow me take a picture of them.  Whenever I travel, I actually find our Middle Eastern friends really welcoming.  And they have the best food ever.

The line was actually very long, we waited for about 30 minutes before we were able to get in the train.  I guess because it is late in the afternoon already and people prefer to climb up there when it’s cooler and dark.  More romantic for our couple friends, and those who are looking for romance of course.

My brother had a blast here.

The perfect view from up there.  In a way, as an amateur photographer- I feel proud of these pictures.  I only see these type of photographs in travel magazines and now I have my own personal shot of the famous sight in Hong Kong.

Doraemon is also at The Peak.  Bought several of these shirts, I am a big fan of this Japanese anime and it’s always a pleasure watching episodes on TV.  Brings back beautiful childhood memories.

I think it is only proper to end this post with a legendary Hong Kong icon, Bruce Lee.  They have a Madame Tussauds up there, but we didn’t really bother going inside.  They have several popular celebrities posted outside of the museum, so why still bother going in, right?  

Some basic info about The Peak, Hong Kong:

*I suggest you go early in the morning (they open 7AM) or go late in the afternoon to avoid the heat.  And enjoy the view while you’re up there!
