So after having a really good night sleep due to hectic travelling day yesterday. Everybody is ready to discover Hong Kong on day two. We started our day by having breakfast at McDonald near the ferry terminal to HK island. After having coffee and muffin we went to the main island by ferry made from woods which I think they should keep it that way as it is very rustic
The ferry ride is about 10 minutes, our mission today is to visit The Peak which is the highest mountain in HK island I guess. Since we are in a group, thus, we decided to take a cheap travel to discover HK. Taxi doesn’t work best for us because we will need two taxies to accommodate everybody. Thus what we did was to go to IFC Mall which is very near to Apple Centre which will be seen from far while you are walking on the bridge walkway.
From IFC Mall we go to level down to take a mini bus up to The Peak. It was super cheap, which is very good for us! From IFC, the bus takes us up the hill with a scenic city view as well as fancy residential near the hillside. The bus finally stops at the ground level and you just have to take the escalator up to The Peak. Before you reach The Peak building, you will go through a shopping complex with small shops and eateries.
Since the journey is during winter seasons, I would like to advise you to bring along umbrella. It was raining when we reached there and luckily we have the jacket with hood. But some don’t have it, so it’s troublesome and not a good idea to walk under the freezing rain.
That’s the view during winter time in Hong Kong. So after taking enough snapshot, we went down to the main building at The Peak.

So what’s inside The Peak? Well, there are numbers of places of interest such as Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, special viewing deck (but it is not free, perhaps because it is higher than the viewing deck earlier), eateries and shopping outlets. After spending enough time here, we take a tram down the hill. The tram station is actually inside The Peak building.
So after reach the ground station, we make our way for lunch at nearby Muslim food court at Masjid. I can’t really remember the name of the masjid. All of us also forgot to take any snapshot at the masjid due to the reason that we are very hungry at the time hahaha.
After lunch, we went for sight seeing on the tram. Local called it ding ding. We also went to Hong Kong Disneyland route, just to recce the place. We will make a comeback Insya Allah.
After that, we went to the local night market near to TST. The price is good, but later..we found out that the seller actually gathers the goods from Guangzhou, which is a way cheaper sob 😥 .
So this is the restaurant that we went for dinner.
This restaurant is actually just across the road from Citadines Ashley HK. So it’s time to rest and I will continue the 3rd day posting in the next blog.
