It can be pretty hazy even in the day.. it can be disappointing if its hazy as u'll miss the great view from the top.

James is right, cabs are everywhere in HK, rarely do u have to wait for more than 5 mins for one. For those interested to take the easy path to the peak and especially if there's a few of u, forget abt buses and peak tram, just get a cab up to the Peak. Its not expensive, save u the long walk to the lower peak tram station and more importantly, saves u the waiting time if the tram ride is crowded. Also, there's really not much to it for the tram ride. Nothing much to see except private apartments and buildings and the experience of the ride on a steep slope. For the sake of experience, i suggest to take the tram ride down instead.

The photos will illustrate my point ...








Cabs are everywhere in Hong KOng...

Wax museum, I would say 1 hour to 1.5 hours depending on your speed and what u want to do (eg take photos etc)

Seriously depending on your luck, nowadays HK night at the Peak is pretty hazy...

15C is still there. But do take note that the since Old Central Ferry Pier issnt there anymore, so you have to board 15C from the new star ferry pier (Pier 7). Frequency is approximately 30mins.

Personally, i would normally either walk up the peak by taking the escalators up to mid-levels, and then walk thru the pavements (You are walking thru some of the more expensive housing in HK, great view and experience too) or if u really want to experience the peak tram then take the peak tram up.

And when going down, nothing is better than taking a double decker bus (service 15) down from the peak itself, its a exciting ride down compared to the monotonous peak tram that only goes down the tracks.

For ferries to macau, if u are staying in Hong Kong island, take the TurboJet ferries from Shun Tak Center (Sheung Wan MTR). Otherwise if u are staying in Kowloon/Tsim Sha Tsui, take the New World First Ferry's Ferries from Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Terminal (The place is also the Star Ferry terminal in TST). You will have to walk into the shopping center and find the berth to board for TST side.

Ferry Schedules are avaliable here for your reference:

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, when did the central pier move? My last visit to Hong Kong was in Oct 2006.
The pier is now infront of the IFC building (Hong Kong Airport Express Station), basically most of the piers are now together at the same location (Lamma island/Cheung Chau/Discovery bay/etc..). The old pier is located infront of the hsbc building.

Hello limeiyan1231, it's my first post here.

This is very thoughtful of you to share information about Hong Kong with us.

I will be going to Hong Kong somewhere mid-late Jun, may I know do you have any recommendations for quiet bars (like those shown in many tvb dramas)?

Also, any shopping areas to recommend? I only know about Causeway Bay, Central, Nathan Road at Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok.

Thank you!

Thanks for your appreciate.
I seldom go bars, but u also can see below URL as ur reference.
http://bar.up4food.com/clubhouse

if you like chinese traditional, go Stanley Market. Stanley also got some bars at sidewalk.
Feel not bad.

hi limeiyan

can share how to get to lan kwai fong?

and where can i get cosmetics or skincare from tsimshatsui or any other places?

thanks.

To go and get cosmetic and skin care you may try to go Bonjour or Sasa. It's popular in HK.
Price reasonable and you may try to go "龍城藥房" 九龍尖沙咀加連威老道28號 (No# 28 Granville Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon)
