We then joined our Big. Bus tour at the Central Pier and went on a bit of a city tour – another post will show those sites. With the big Bus tour we were able to bypass most of the line ups for the Peak Tram which some said were as long as 2 1/2 hours. We were on a tram within 30 minutes. They cram close to 100 people in the tram at a time. We were the last ones on which actually gave a good view. The picture below is a tram going back down the mountain to pick up some more tourists.
This is the Tram station AT&T he top of the mountain and like any tourist site you have to walk through the gift stores, coffee shops and restaurants. Once we made it through the gauntlet we went on a nice walk around the Peak and we were able to take the photos below. It was a bit too foggy to get some nice photos of the harbour but you can see the quantity of skyscrapers. It is said that Hong Kong has twice as many skyscrapers as New York City!
The sheer volume of buildings is truly unbelievable.
