Aylene Escapades Day 2

The day started bright and…….early. No who am I kidding it started Grey, misty and semi-late. We decided to go to The Peak today, bad choice due to the weather, but as the day looked like it was clearing up we decided it was a brilliant plan.

Off we walked to the MTR only to be stopped by the idea of Starbucks. Yummy! We spent far too much time there! To get to the Peak you can take many different routes. I decided we would go straight to Central and then it would be closer, I was right but I hadn’t figured on trying to find the exact location of the bus.This led us to ask the very helpful bus people, their English wasn’t great but they were super helpful which was nice.

For future reference this is the easiest way from central:To the Peak

We got to the Peak and decided to take the Tram both up and down. While this was beautiful I wouldn’t recommend it for the shear number of people and the LONG wait in the lines. I have been up both times, neither one a weekend or public holiday, and it was a nightmare wait.

DSCN1646After arriving at the top we walked up, and up and up, taking escalators to the top and only stopping to take some pics. As it was still Chinese New year month they had this stunning Cherry Blossom Tree on one level, with the zodiac, a wishing well and a drum.

 

We had some fun there, Stella had told me I must walk around a Cherry Blossom tree if I find one so that I can have luck in love. Yeah I don’t think that worked hehehe. We hit the drum to send luck and love to our loved ones and then kept going up. As we stood at the Sky Terrace we saw the clouds rolling in and the visibility got worse, in the end we took some photos, wrote a message of love for everyone and just left.

Trickeye

While at the Peak we decided to grab a meal and go visit the Trickeye Museum. This is awesomely fun! It isn’t worth it if you are by yourself but if you have a friend or a group of friends this is so much fun! You stand and take photos in certain angles and have a lot of giggles.

When we left the peak we waited for about 30mins to an hour in line for the Tram. Painful. Then we decided to walk down to the MTR instead as it was really lovely out, we walked to Admiralty which was great, they have an awesome MacD’s there.

We spent many an hour on the Island (again) and then after a No Bun burger at Langham we dragged our weary selves home for a good nights sleep.
