Destination: The Peak

Hey everyone!  This is still the continuation of our amazing Hong Kong trip.  Half of the day was spent roaming around the city, the next half at The Peak.  I was actually starting to feel so tired with all the walking that we did but going to the Peak made me feel rejuvenated.

The Peak used to be a signaling post for incoming cargo but then it became a retreat for the more privileged residents of Hong Kong.  There used to be a Peak Hotel but it was burned down by a fire in 1938.  (Source: The Tram provided transportation then as it still does now.  For me, riding the Tram is the best way to start The Peak experience.

So many people!
After a quick meal at NYF, we were off to see some stars at Madame Tussauds' wax museum.  It surpassed my expectations!  The wax figures were just spread out across the room.  You can touch the figures, take a picture with them, even "flirt" with them.  Hahaha!  It was such an energy booster.

Here are some of the pictures that I took.

After our museum tour, we went up to the Sky Terrace to experience this amazing view.  Real breathtaking!
