Hong Kong Part 6 - Ngong Peng Shan

Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station

I guess I really have to finish up my post about my Hong Kong trip end of last year. I still have a lot more to go and there's still so many to share. However, I'm running out of time as I'm going to Hong Kong again next week. So, I will try to finish up all about this trip 1st before I go there for the 2nd time.. Haha

Cable car as background

Next attraction on our list is Ngong Peng Hill. We are going to take the cable car up. This cable car is much more bigger than our Genting's. Can fit about 8 person if I'm not wrong, and there's still place to move. Haha.. One of the specialty of the cable car which was just added in is the crystal cable car. What you mean by crystal? The floor where you will be stepping inside the cable car is TRANSPARENT! 

Yup.. you can look down at the wide sea when inside. Kinda scary but sounds interesting. The price for this cable car is a little more expansive than the normal ones. So, to save money, we choose the normal cable car. 

Inside cable car

View from cable car

Saw the photo above? Note the long long stone walkway from the land to the sea? Doesn't that remind you of some ancient TVB drama.. where those ships land and depart? Haha.. look similar to me.. hehe

Some view from cable car

Mind you, this cable car is extremely long and high. From the pictures above, you can imagine how high it is.. Haha.. Quite comfortable ride actually and really enjoyable view and cool air. 

Buddha Statue

This is the a sneak peak we get of Buddha statue while still inside cable car. So huge!

China Village

Upon reaching, this is the village view that greeted us. So different from the modern building we just came from. Feel like I'm in some old China village. Haha.. Very nicely decorated and the floor is extremely dust-free  rubbish free.. haha.. 

Nice landscape

Of course we waste no time and start to snap snap snap! We are so fascinated by the buildings. Those buildings are actually shops selling souvenir and food. Those souvenir shops sells really nice things.. some very interesting but those are expansive. If you have a chance to visit this place, spend sometime browsing one shop will be good. Because almost everyshops sells something similar. Choose the biggest one there and spend there will be good enough. Haha..

Oh.. And we ate Bing Tang Wu Lao there as well.. Some kind of fruits which added caramel.. If I'm not wrong la.. Did not manage to take a photo of it though cause we are too excited to makan. Haha..HKD10 per stick if I remember correctly.

Take 1

Take 2

Take 3

What I wanted to snap was just this signboard. Usually, one single snap will do. But, with friends like this, you need at least 3. ^.^"


Saw the poster? Doesn't the faces of the emperor and empress look so familiar??!!! I'm shock to see the faces there.. LoL...

Tao Foo Fah

Before we walk up the hundreds step up to Buddha, we stop for Tao Foo Fah. This is my 1st time eating Tao Foo Fah with brown sugar. Not yet melt. Did not snap any photo of the sugar but it taste.. um.. special. haha.. not exactly to my taste cause I need to add a lot a lot of sugar before it become sweet enough for me. But I did not regret trying it. Haha..

Fei at the beginning of the steps

Journey of hundreds steps begin. Cc's mom doesn't want to climb so she decided to jaga our bag. This is a very good thing cause without the bag, we climb much more faster and easier. LoL.

We snap and talk and laugh while climbing and before long, we are panting like what my dog did after 3 runs around the garden.. 


Anyway, we managed to get to the top!!! And of course. A victory shot! Haha.. It's super duper windy up there and our hairs are flying like crazy. Coollll air is sooo nice.

Some other God statues

There are few God statues up there and we took pix with them. There are so many people up there that we need to snap fast and next.. Hahaa.. Decent pictures are a bit hard at times like this.

Cassie at hill top

See my hair? So messy already. Comb also can throw away.. Haha.. Nevertheless, the view up there is really breathtaking.. Enjoy ourself there just staring at the green green hills.. 

Up to down

See? After we come all the way up, we need to go all the way down again. LoL.. Although going down is normally easier, but we still lag abit before going down.. Trying to avoid the obvious.. Haha..

Some snap shots 1
