We were initially supposed to make it on the first day, but arrived to a line snaking all the way round the corner. This was sometime late afternoon so we decided to wake up really early on our last day to beat the crowd.
The tram is frequented both by tourists and locals so you can expect some heavy crowds every now and then. And while we have the steepest passenger railway in the world, the Victoria Peak tram is apparently the world’s steepest funicular railway.
Bet you looked up what that means, didn’t you?
We definitely weren’t dressing for the weather up there. For some reason, i decided to leave the apartment in summer wear (cold shoulder top, mini skirt, and denim jacket) which later came in handy when we were in Cheung Chau – more on that later. Once we got to the peak, it was SO windy that i was more than happy to just stand under the sun. Pretty sure people were looking at us haha these two bare-legged girls doing happy dances to keep warm. Everyone else was decked in windbreakers and long pants and there we were playing photographer/model.
Seriously though, the things we do.
Eventually we ducked into McDonalds and got sucked into buying a diabetic hot chocolate just cause the foam art had a really cute reindeer on it. Because when on holidays.
//Note: If you already have an Octopus card, it works on the tram as well. Though there is no difference in travel prices as when purchasing a paper ticket.
