To The Peak


Getting to the Peak:

Take the MTR to Central then Bus 15 to the Peak. Here you can decide if you want to use the tram, take a taxi or even a bus.

The peak directions

Take exit A, turn right and make sure you are not on Des Voux road. You need to be on the road Parallel to Des Voux, Its big and doesn’t have road pedestrian crossings. look left and right then decide which crossing you want to take and grab the escalators up, cross over and go down again.

For a full list of the different options to get up to the Peak have a look here: The Peak

Getting to Stanley Market


As always you can use trusty google maps if you need to.

But just to make life easier have a look here, I wish I had been smart enough to check out the bus routes 🙂 


If you are going from Mong Kok then you have at least two options  MTR ->Bus or MTR -> taxi.By MTR take the Red line to Central and from there find  bus 6, 6A, 6X , 66 or 260 from Exchange Square bus terminus.Make sure to get off at the stop that says Stanley Village!


If you want to take the MTR to Wan Chai instead then leave the station via Exit B2 and catch Bus 6 or 6A to Stanley.

Getting to LKF



MTR to Central

Exit D2 and turn left, walk along  the road. Turn left into Theatre Lane, and up D’Aguilar Street.


The MTR generally runs to half past 12 at night and starts at half past 5 in the morning; so if you leave too late take a taxi or look for a green minibus at the bottom of the main street. (down the hill look to your left)




Getting to Monkey Mountain from Mong Kok


We took the MTR from Yau Ma Tai to Cheung Sha Wan and then bus 72. You will need to take the Tseun Wan line (red line).

We got of at exit A3 but I would suggest taking exit A2 as you can see.

By bus:

You can take bus 81 anywhere along Nathan Road from Jordan Road onwards. Check out the bus stops and look for the correct number. We got dropped off at the stop by Mong Kok Station. You may have to try out several bus stop before you find the one servicing 81.But make sure that you are on the correct side of the road! Bus 'map'

On the right is an image I took of the bus stop we were at. it shows where you are and which way the bus will go.

Get off at the Shek Lei Pui Reservoir stop just before the bridge. Check out the KMB website for further information.


To reach the park from the road, follow the access road next to the toilet block. It will take you down to the southern end of Kowloon Reservoir from where you can join  one of the various smaller walks.                    IMG_1852 IMG_1843

Ok So before I go into what I did in Macau let us have a look at the different buses and the routes. 

I got most of this information from
