Turned loose in Hong Kong, we first headed for the subway to the waterfront in Kowloon, took a Star Ferry (in a subsequent post) across the harbour to Hong Kong, and climbed the steep Hong Kong streets to the entrance of the tram which takes you to the top of Victoria Peak.
You emerge in a touristy building….from which you can see down the mountain.
You can ride escalators to the top of the building – if you have paid the extra fee to do so. We didn’t.
Alternatively you can walk around a path just below the peak and look across to Kowloon, down on the densely populated business centre of the north-facing part of Hong Kong Island, or westwards to the shipping lanes.
