Tuesday noon a week ago Caz, Adam and me went to a typical Dim Sum restaurant in Hong Kong. We took various types and after this delicious lunch we were all pretty full. The advantage of having lunch together is that we cn order various types of dim sum. If you go alone you only can taste some of them. And dim sum is typically only served fur breakfast and lunch but not in the evening for dinner.
Afterwards I took the tramway along Hong Kong Island which is pretty cheap for one ride (far less than the MTR), but you have it even for longer for the same distance 😉. So bring your time with you, as these pretty old trams are not the fastest, but the world’s last double-decker tramways. I prefer the view from the upper deck, the same as with the buses. In central in got off the tram and went to the IFC mall. The shops inside the mall had for sure nothing on offer which fits my needs, but on top of the IFC mall are some public seats, which were officially not served by the adjacent restaurants. So I just set down, looked over Victoria harbour to Kowloon on the other side…and wrote for the rest of the afternoon some postcards.
In the evening Jojo came over and we wanted to go up to High West Peak. In order to be “faster” we decided to take a bus to Victoria peak, as it’s cheaper than the cable car. But unfortunately the bus was in the traffic jam and in the 3nd it took more than one hour to get there. We started our walk and the enlightened Hong Kong Island was beneath of us and after about one hour we reached West High Peak. As it is less known, only a view people are up there to take pictures, compared to Victoria Peak which was totally crowded, but the view is not less spectacular.
