HK Tourist Destination | Sight-seeing Hong Kong
It's Day 4. If you noticed, we have a very relaxed itinerary. We try not to squeeze everything in one day. Jam have Hong Kong Central Library in her must visit list, and since I don't have an itinerary prepared I went out with her and check out the library and more.
HONG KONG CENTRAL LIBRARY (FREE)
Just the thought of visiting a library gives me a dose. I am not a book lover and if I open books I have a different taste or probably genre, lol I usually grab some tech books or design books. Anyway moving forward, we visited Hong Kong Central Library. And low and behold, a 12 storey building is in front of me. Each floor caters to different age and WIFI everywhere. I honestly don't how to describe how I felt. I got too excited and chose to move from one floor to the other.
And here I am once again, thought of how I wish we have one back in PH.
How we get there? From mini-hotel, we walked our way to Hennessy Road to Hong Kong Central Library.
VICTORIA PARK (FREE)
Located just across Hong Kong Central Library.
SIGHT-SEEING WITH TRAM (FEE: 2.30 HKD)
Simply ride the tram, seat comfortable at the second deck and enjoy the scenery while you're travelling from end to end. Just the thought of experiencing the tram ride is fun. And it was so fun that I forgot to take a photo of me riding it.
THE PEAK TRAM (FEE: 98.00 HKD with Sky Terrace)
The venerable Peak Tram is, as most passengers agree, the only way to truly experience the beauty of Hong Kong's natural wonders. Tens of millions of people from every corner of the globe have taken the ride, which affords a uniquely spectacular perspective of the city.
Located also at the Garden Road Peak Tram Lower Terminus is The Peak Tram Historical Gallery. Open in September, 2007, The Peak Tram Historical Gallery is like a time tunnel with more than 200 memorabilia exhibited. Divided into 15 theme sections, it will take you back to Hong Kong in the 19th and 21st century. The first day of commercial operation on May 30th, 1888, attracted 600 passengers. [Source: The Peak]
From Mini-hotel we ride the mini-bus #26 going to the Hong Kong Park. Walk in the park and look for the Peak Tram Garden. Wait time when you are doing a DIY is usually longer most specially during holidays, but if you purchased BIG BUS tickets, you can go directly to the tram stations without having to wait that long.
It's so cold up here. And my eyes are showing weakness already. I was having a bad headache and my feet are sore that day. I went home really sick and with fever. But you know it's just me and my birthday. It has been a ritual that I wish and I hope I can get over with in my next future birthday trips.
