Look at all those high-rise apartments!
As The Peak is so popular, the line for the Peak Tram ride is extremely long. Hundreds of people wait to get into the two-car train, and each train only holds about 120 people if I remember correctly. Nonetheless, the line moves relatively fast; I believe it only took us 30 to 45 minutes to get a spot on the tram.

The Peak is home to high-cost real estate, but of course, the shopping and parks attract the tourists. There are two large malls at The Peak, and when you get off the tram, you arrive in the bowl-shaped one.

touristy goods shops, a Madam Tussands wax museum,
and an observation deck.

Aside from shopping, there are nature trails at The Peak. We walked on the one leading to Pok Fu Lam Reservoir, but didn't go all the way down to the lake because my old man was tired!
|The trail is heavily wooded but appeared safe.|
We spent most of our time at The Peak shopping, and decided it would be better to take a bus back down to the Central Station. In my opinion, taking the bus down is the best option since it's cheaper and easily accessible. The bus stop is beside the second mall.
