I got to cross something off of my bucket list in February 2013. We went to Hong Kong for Chinese New Year!
As you can imagine, Hong Kong was packed and so were all of the tourist attractions. We had been to Hong Kong previously for a weekend getaway, but the weather was bad so we didn’t bother with The Peak or the Big Buddha because we knew the views would have been terrible. Fortunately, we had fantastic weather most days this time around!
Our first big outing was The Peak. There is a tram that takes you up the to the top, but we knew the line would be hours long and the tram would be cramped so we decided to take a taxi. It was the right decision!
There’s a mall at the top so we did a bit of browsing and then headed out to enjoy the views.
We headed back to the hotel in the early evening to try to reserve the best place in the house to watch the fireworks.
I think it was worth the wait!
