The Peak (Tai Peng Shan)

One of the most famous attractions in Hong Kong is The Peak; which is not to be missed for its magnificent view of the island.
Therefore, I have definitely had it on my itinerary when I planned to visit Hong Kong; only couldn't decide between the daytime and night scenery.
I went up at night; and boy, was it crowded!!

Despite the rainy season, Hong Kong's tourism was still not affected nor drowned.

I had to wait for 3 rounds before finally getting into the queue into the tram all the way up to The Peak.

So how can I miss the chance of taking pic with this famous tram?

The design of the tram was rather colonial and I liked the antique feeling of this train:)

Upon reaching the Peak, we had a quick dinner and then proceeded to Madame Tussaud's Wax museum before taking in the view.
Reason is because the musuem closes early; and the view will always be there:)

This is really a unique musuem whereby you get to see all the wax figures of the famous people in the world.
In fact, the moulding was so realistic that you feel like you're meeting the idols in person!

Standing at the entrance was James Bond:)
