The Peak Tram Hong Kong

One of the most fun journeys we’ve taken was a ride on the Peak Tram in Hong Kong.  In some ways it was a nostalgic visit because in the 1950s, Steve’s mum used to take this journey every day as a teenager to be a nanny to some children in one of the posh houses along the route.

The views on the way up are pretty amazing!

The gradient is such that you feel a bit like you’re on a roller coaster, albeit a very sedate one.

When we got to the top you could see a haze over the city – smog!  Of course, this is a packed tourist attraction and there is plenty of tat to buy, but we did find a nice café for a cuppa.

Well worth a visit!
